About the UAE Business Awards
MEA Markets is very proud to host the UAE Business Awards 2023 for its seventh instalment! This awards programme aims to reward a vastly diverse range of hardworking businesses from across the United Arab Emirates region, who are demonstrating innovation and excellence throughout a turbulent economic climate many firms are suffering through.
While the majority of Europe and America are experiencing increasing difficulty regarding their respective economies and financial situations, the UAE’s story is very different indeed! The UAE economy is set to report its strongest annual expansion since 2011 after it grew by a very impressive 8.2% in the first three months of 2022, due to higher oil prices and measures to mitigate the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has placed on economies around the globe. The region has also seen itself shipping oil to new destinations such as Europe in the past twelve months as global economies are seeking alternative means of powering themselves.
The likes of the Expo 2020 hosted in Dubai, the recovery in global travel and the easing of pandemic-related restrictions have also strengthened the non-oil sector in the region, expanding by more than 6% in the first three months of the year. International visitor numbers have also recovered to around 70% of pre-pandemic levels at the start of 2022. It is also expected that the upcoming FIFA World Cup held in nearby Qatar will also likely benefit the travel hubs in the UAE.
We aspire to reward anyone who has demonstrated excellence within their industry, regardless of whether they are from a huge conglomerate or a small enterprise.
Involvement within MEA Markets’ UAE Business Awards 2023 will showcase your business’ position as a significant player within your industry, as well as exposing potential collaborators, colleagues, and clients to your award-winning product or service!
