Bigger Print Award ceremony set
Dubai, September 22, 2007
The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry's (DCCI) Printing and Publishing Group (PPG) is preparing for a much bigger participation and a more elaborate Dubai Print Award 2007 ceremony.
To be organised under the patronage of Shaikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the second edition of the annual award has been expanded to cover the whole GCC region and not just the UAE's printing and publishing sector.
A total of 21 awards will be handed out, including six debuting country awards, during the ceremony to be held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel on January 20, 2008.
'The Dubai Print Award gives players in the print and publishing industry an excellent venue for benchmarking and cultivating a culture of quality in our products and services. The event also provides motivation to continuously strive for innovation and excellence. I'm sure that this year's event will produce even better results because of the participation of the rest of the GCC countries,' said managing director, Printec Printer's Resources, Mazen Haj.
Outstanding entries from all over the region will be conferred gold, silver and bronze awards in 21 different categories. Among the newly introduced categories are the country awards, which include the Bahrain Award, Kuwait Award, Oman Award, Qatar Award, KSA Award and UAE Award.
'We truly appreciate the DCCI and PPG's keen interest in supporting the print and publishing industry by launching initiatives that help in enhancing best practices in the business,' said CEO, Colour Lines Group, Tarek Jawharji.
On top of a broader coverage area and a bigger number of candidates, DCCI and PPG have also prepared a more exquisite awarding ceremony replete with exciting entertainment, sumptuous dinner and a host of surprises.
The ceremony will be attended by government dignitaries and distinguished guests from the printing and publishing field.Trade Arabia News Service
