Sponsorship Opportunities

Dubai Lynx offers a host of opportunities that enable your business to reach the influential communications industry in the Middle East and North Africa. From becoming the prestigious co-sponsor of the event or a category sponsor for the Dubai Lynx Awards to branding VIP cars and lanyards, talk to us about how to get involved in the region's most important event for creative communications.

sponsorship networking

Networking remains one of the key objectives for many of our delegates at Dubai Lynx. The Festival provides an unparalleled opportunity to interact at a senior level in an open and relaxed environment.

Each evening from 18:00 – 20:30, the Lynx Connect Bar, Fort Island, provides an informal setting for all delegates to network. As the seminars come to a close, festival attendees meet up here to discuss the day's events, do business and enjoy a drink.

Sponsorship of an evening event at the Lynx Connect Bar includes branding around the island, invitations distributed to all delegates at registration and promotion of the evening prior to the event.

Sponsorship Talent & Training
Talent & Training

Work with the next generation of creatives though our Young Lynx Competitions, which provide a space for young people working in the industry to showcase their talent. In three separate competitions (Media, Integrated and Print), teams are challenged to work on a brief to a strict deadline and deliver a piece of work that is judged by experts at the Festival. This is a great way to work with the talent of the future and ensure they are familiar with your brand, product and/or service early in their careers.

The Student Awards programmes offer an unparalleled opportunity for young talent to experience the world of advertising – Dubai Lynx offers student awards in two different disciplines: Integrated and Print.

Traditional print advertising

Boost your presence and visibility at the Festival with a printed advert in one of the publications given to delegates. Distributed to delegates when they collect their badge, the official Dubai Lynx is an essential guide to the entire Festival. Placing an ad inside is a great way to get your brand in the hands of every delegate. 

The Dubai Lynx Winners guide, featuring all the winners, is produced after the Festival.

In May, the Dubai Lynx MENA Showcase is distributed to more than 13,000 people via the Cannes Lions delegate bag, and also digitally to the rest of the world.
