KUWAIT, 26 May, 2012 - KidZania Kuwait is pleased to announce that it has welcomed Wataniya Telecom as its newest marketing partner. Wataniya, one of the leading telecommunications providers in the Middle East, will sponsor the Telecommunications establishment within KidZania. This important partnership with Wataniya will offer children an opportunity to learn about the latest technologies that are integrated into the telecommunications industry.
Among the many interactive activities that Wataniya will bring to KidZania is a chance for kids to rent a mobile phone and experiment with different applications provided by the telecommunications company, such as the KidZania Kuwait City Guide and Friend Locator. Wataniya also brings, to the education and entertainment (edutainment) centre, many years of experience in telecommunication operations and customer service. Through sponsoring the Wataniya Telecommunications establishment within KidZania Kuwait, KidZanians (citizens of KidZania) will also be able to learn and understand the operations of a call centre and the importance of customer service and communication through fun and engaging activities.
Commenting on the partnership, Riham Al-Ayyar, Senior Director of Communications, Brand and Customer Experience at Wataniya said: "Wataniya Telecom is excited to be partnering with KidZania; we look forward to being part of an endeavor that the children of Kuwait will learn greatly from, and also be encouraged to be part of creating a better world. Wataniya's presence within the 'edutainment' centre is also an excellent way of teaching children about telecommunications services; in addition to being a creative means of interacting with the people in Kuwait and building brand presence."
