Commercial Bank of Dubai sponsors UAE’s first social dining awards

Commercial Bank of Dubai (CBD) is sponsoring the 2015 Restaurant Buzz Awards, the UAE’s first social dining awards. Organised by social restaurant discovery web and app based service RoundMenu and dining impartial review website FooDiva, the awards will recognize the best restaurants for social occasions, based on votes by the public. The public can vote for the awards only through Facebook and Twitter. Voting will close on 14th of February 2015 and the winners will be announced by social media shortly after.

Achillefs Manolopoulos, Head of Digital Channels for CBD said: “Our sponsorship of the awards is aligned with our objective of widening our digital engagement with customers and the broader UAE community. Our participation is also in line with our "innovation roadmap”, as part of which we launched the region's first virtual assistant, the first personal financial management tool and first FACEBOOK BRANCH. We are aware of the importance of engaging our customers on a diversity of platforms, and as a market leader in digital banking, we are excited to sponsor an event that utilizes social media in new and innovative ways.”

The revamp of CBD’s online banking service has streamlined its online transactions, making it easier for customers to conduct digital transactions with the Bank. The recently launched FACEBOOK BRANCH allows CBD’s online customers to manage their daily banking needs, such as viewing accounts and making transactions. CBD is the only bank in the region and one of only three banks in the world to offer this service.
