The media industry in the UAE is a closely-knit one despite its competitive nature. It is also why networking events in the country are hugely popular as they provide these professionals a chance to network, brainstorm and let off some steam.
As Mnawar Jamil Shourakaa, the initiator of “UAE Media Meetup” and founder of CopyArabia says, “Getting together with real people in real life makes powerful things happen.” This is why a semi-formal gathering “UAE Media Meetup” had been organized on the 18th of April at Carlton Downtown Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road, for all media professionals with the objective of establishing the UAE as the epicentre of creativity in the MENA region.
“Day by day, the UAE in general, and Dubai in particular, is establishing itself as the leading country in the MENA region for businesses and ambitious projects. HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and the Crown Prince HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum have successfully transformed the city into the centre of tomorrow, setting an example for the entire globe,” he adds.
Husni Abdel Hadi, CEO of Carlton Group of Hotels adds: “We’re always keen to host meetups in our venues, especially among media people to promote the image of the UAE as a leading incubator of creativity in the MENA region. Our relaxed environment and friendly management has and will always be a key attraction for young businesspeople and entrepreneurs”.
