As we move into an economy less dependent on oil revenues, we are witnessing the emergence of a new breed of companies that are driving the future of the region.

In keeping with its 62-year-old tradition of empowering businesses in the region, MEED (Middle East Economic Digest) is pleased to announce the third edition of the MEED Awards in celebration of companies that are disrupting business as we know it in the GCC.

Modern corporate strategy is built on the four fundamental pillars of people, diversification, society and sustainability. Companies that:

  • Prioritise the wellbeing and continuous professional development of their people
  • Have a diversification plan to support continuous growth in an economy no longer dominated by oil revenues
  • Implement strategies to increase operational efficiency and business longevity in line with regional sustainability goals
  • Consciously work towards maximising social impact, generate employment opportunities and contribute to the overall enrichment of society

MEED Awards 2019 is a celebration of companies that are pioneering the corporate revolution in the GCC, and provides a platform for business leaders and visionaries to ignite new ideas and set fresh guidelines for best practices in the GCC.

Apart from being a fantastic opportunity to network, this is an invitation to join the region’s movers and shakers in a conversation that is sure to fuel the future success of the region.
