The Marketing Society UAE Awards 2024

The Shortlist is announced

Our Awards set the standard for marketing excellence and have been widely recognised in the UK as the leading marketing awards since they were first launched in 1985. We’re delighted to have launched them in the UAE in 2023 and to receive record numbers in 2024. 

Our mission is to celebrate and champion marketing leadership – the Awards are not just about creativity and effectiveness, which is the essence of marketing excellence, but the people, the leaders, and the visionaries who are spearheading the way forward and showing why marketers can inspire us all. We want to make our industry proud and showcase the impact marketing has on business success and growth.

Awards are a pivotal tool in showcasing the work of brands and agencies who prove the power of marketing excellence on their businesses, driving demonstrable growth and ROI. And importantly the impact that marketers can have on society as a whole, addressing issues that we all know we need to effect change on.

Thanks to our partners The Trade Desk and House of Comms for their support.
