Details

The Gulf Business Awards is one of the most prestigious ceremonies celebrating the GCC business community. For more than two decades we have covered the region’s movers and shakers and the attendees of our annual awards night are a reflection of the respected status the Gulf Business magazine and gulfbusiness.com website enjoy in the Gulf.

Unlike other regional accolades based on contributions or politics, the winners are selected by an expert panel of judges and incorporate a public vote, meaning additional credibility for those recognised on the night itself.

The prospect of taking home a Gulf Business Award has brought the cream of the business crop back to our ceremony each year. The night itself also offers opportunities for brands and businesses to rub shoulders with the Gulf region’s corporate elite, including industry titans, government officials and entrepreneurs.
