The Festival

The two-day festival brings together MENA's entire creative industry, from the region's most senior and influential decision-makers to emerging new talent.

The Awards 

The Lynx is MENA's most coveted award for creative excellence and winning one puts you at the forefront of the region's marketing communications industry. The 2019 winners were announced at the Dubai Lynx Awards show on 13 March 2018.

Alex Maalouf

“I’d rate the Dubai Lynx as the best creative event in the MENA region. There’s the right blend of local and international, of creativity and insights to get everyone in the industry (or wanting to enter the industry) thinking about how they can create better campaigns.”

Alex Maalouf
