The Festival

Dubai Lynx is MENA's premier festival of creativity, bringing MENA’s creative communications industry together to learn, network and celebrate the power of creativity.

What to expect

You'll be inspired by senior and influential speakers from the region and beyond. Expect a strong focus on networking, a chance to interact with decision-makers through roundtables, community meet ups, hosted networking and much, much more.

Who will you meet? Our delegates include a wide range of credible, influential, innovative and creative people from big brands, advertisers, start-ups, creative, communications agencies, innovators and tech companies and more.

A place to be inspired

The festival kicks off with a launch party followed by two days of fantastic content, world-class speakers and unparalleled networking opportunities. Then, the region’s best work is awarded and celebrated at the Dubai Lynx Awards Show.

Elevating young talent

Our Student Awards and Young Lynx Competitions give the next generation of MENA's creative talent the chance to get on stage at the festival and show the world what they're capable of.

Young Lynx Competitions

Talented young professionals test their skills under pressure in five fast-paced Young Lynx competitions. The challenges cover Print, PR, Integrated, Media and, new in 2020, Marketing. They all take place over 24 hours at the Festival.

Student Competitions

Open to full-time university students between 18 and 25 years old, the Dubai Lynx Student Competitions create opportunities for young talent. Past competitions include the Student Print Competition, the MBC Youth Competition and the MBC Student Hack.
