The summer campaign, ‘Get More’, has exceeded industry benchmarks and generated over 336 million impressions. It has also witnessed high engagement with 1.2 million clicks to date, along with video completion rates (VCR) above 85% in KSA and Kuwait.

Notably, it even includes an in-market ice cream activation challenging partners to explore different flavors of Ras Al Khaimah, such as Pearlstachio, Vanilla Jais, or Berry Grylls. This wide-ranging approach ensures that the campaign reaches audiences across different geographies and maximizes its impact.
