ABOUT THE MEED AWARDS

The unprecedented infrastructure growth experienced by the GCC over the past six decades is rightly recognised as being one of the most significant economic achievements of modern times. Guided by the ambitious national visions set by the leadership of each GCC state, the cities of the region have been transformed from humble beginnings into vibrant, modern and forward-looking global cities. To celebrate this incredible achievement, the MEED Awards recognise and honour the thousands of project companies and stakeholders that have been instrumental to the success of this growth story.

The judges will look at how each individual company has contributed to this success through its business achievements, environmental sustainability programmes, workforce culture, innovative practices, and client service in delivering the region’s ambitious projects programme. In parallel, we will be recognising individual achievements among the leadership of each company and stakeholder.

Whether you are a leader, a driver, an inspirer. Whether your business is supplying or buying, innovating or renewing. If you or your business is leading the way and making difference, we want to shout about it. The program is celebrating excellence across the fastest moving, most diverse and vibrant market on earth, the GCC.
