Dubai Lynx is MENA's premier festival of creativity. Each year, it brings the region's creative communications industry together over three days in Dubai to learn, network and celebrate the power of creativity. The Lynx is recognised globally as a benchmark for creative excellence, and the annual awards celebrate and elevate the very best work from across the region.
"The insights gained from the industry's best minds, along with the fantastic work on display, help us realise that good is not good enough anymore."
Regional Head of Strategic Planning, FP7/MENA
