What does Nickelodeon Think of KIDS IN MOTION?

Interview with Fadi Maurice Sabbagh, Senior Director VIMN Consumer Products Middle East & Africa, Viacom International Media Networks

1. What are the main reasons for you to participate in Kids In Motion 2018?
KIM proved to be one of the most successful events in Saudi Arabia attracting families from all the kingdom plus Saudi kids have a solid foundation and awareness on the Nickelodeon brand from which to build skills and equip them to succeed in the future.

2. What are you precisely looking forward to at this happening in particular?
Being one of the leading family entertainment brand and company in the world, we want to connect directly with our fans and their families giving them the unique opportunity to live the brand experience, looking forward for an exciting engagement with families and kids in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

3. Tell us more about the brand you are participating with in Kids In Motion and how would you expect the reaction of the Saudi audience to be with your brand?
Nickelodeon is a safe place for families, we develop high quality, innovative and unique experiences by leveraging the power of our brand. The relationship consumers have with our brand is valuable and edutainment.

4. For the past 4 editions we noticed that Nickelodeon has always been part of the stage with Ninja Turtles, SpongeBob, Dora The Explorer and this year with Paw Patrol which shows that you are giving a special attention to the Saudi Audience. In what ways and why?
Nickelodeon has a very strong presence in KSA specially as a channel on pay TV and is amongst OSN’s top performing channels on the platform which has the highest numbers of subscribers and not to forget the “Free to Air” Nickelodeon block on MBC3 which is reaching millions of kids in the MENA region.

5. How do you evaluate the Nickelodeon's partnership in terms of licensing with EventBox, knowing it had won The Best Performance award in 2017?
Event Box is simply not a regular event management licensee, based on our business experience EB is a solid partner for so many years to come. Winning the Best Performance Award in 2017 is a proof of the strong partnership with Viacom.

6. And in the licensing sector in general?
Our history started in the late 90’s where we started licensing our first hits Rugrats and Blues Clues. Soon afterwards the global launch of our evergreen beloved hits, Dora the explorer and SpongeBob rapidly grew our business, leaving a remarkable Nickelodeon footprint in the licensing environment in the last couple of years.

Thanks to our strong partnership with MBC group and MBC3 in particular as the strongest local “Free To Air” TV channel for kids in the Middle East which helped us to drove our Consumer Products business to a different level.

Today we are at the tremendous success of Paw Patrol as the number one preschool property followed by new hits such as Blaze and Shimmer & Shine.
Our strong property The Turtles “TMNT” is still holding a strong position in the older boys age group and the loveable Jojo Siwa in the tween world.

7. We see Nickelodeon present on different panels: entertainment in shopping malls, stage shows, TV, consumer products ….) - What are the future plans for Nickelodeon in the region? Are you looking for more expansion?
Seeing the latest progress from Viacom in these fields, I can say it’s just the beginning for a successful plans in the MENA region.

8. Finally, how do you think that the new strategy of the GEA will affect Nickelodeon’s brands and live shows in particular?
There is no better time in the Kingdom for our brand and engagement with our fans and audience as of now, this is all of the great vision of GEA to bring the best of contents to kids and families. Our properties focus on education & entertainment which makes it appealing to all family members.
