Terms and conditions

GCRE Award is an initiative from Groupement Des Concessionaires Renault Europe, also know as the European Renault, Dacia, Alpine and Mobilze dealer Association.. The initiative has existed since 2021 and was created by then-President of the Association Sipko de Ruiter. The reason for this was because in talking to stakeholders, it appeared that the added value of the retailer network was not always clear. To break through this, monthly attention is given via social media to various initiatives developed from retailers and there is also the GCRE Award. Whereas the attention via social media focuses on the daily business within the various Renault, Dacia, Alpine and Mobilize outlets, the GCRE Award focuses on the bigger, more out-of-the-box and more distinctive activities.
