During the 61 years of MEED’s existence, it has come too been known as an incredibly barometer of quality, so it was the next logical step for MEED to launch The MEED Awards, in 2017, to celebrate its 60th birthday.

 

The MEED Awards gives companies the chance to tell their success story to a regional audience, regardless of size or industry, through the GCC's most prestigious awards programme. Showcase your businesses achievement to clients and investors, reward staff and benchmark your success against competitors.

 

The judges look at business achievements, environmental sustainability programmes, workforce culture, innovative practices, and client service. In parallel, we recognize individual achievements among the leadership of each company and stakeholder.
