MEED commends the originality, variety, technical achievement and maturity of the region’s projects market
MEED has announced today the national winners for the MEED Projects Awards 2019 in association with Mashreq.
Seventy seven outstanding projects have been given national winner status as part of the first round of judging for the coveted awards. Competing in categories that capture the ongoing diversification of our region, the national winners now enter the second stage of judging, during which they will be assessed by 30 of the region’s most influential and experienced industry leaders.
In an unprecedented move, MEED has chosen to have the judging results audited by accounting and consultancy firm Grant Thornton, before announcing the GCC winners at an awards ceremony on 24 April at the Conrad Dubai hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road.
“We are now in the ninth year of the MEED Projects Awards and every year the projects that are submitted provide a fantastic window on what is going on across the region,” said MEED’s editorial director, Richard Thompson.
“This year, we have seen a substantial increase in the variety of projects presented for awards and this reflects the growing diversification of the regional economy. We are seeing ever more impressive levels of originality of technical achievement, of scale and of purpose as the market continues to mature and deepen.
“These projects continue to lay the foundations for the long-term future success of the region and continue to provide inspiration and pride in what this region can achieve even while conditions have been challenging.”
Congratulations and good luck to all of this year’s national winners. We look forward to celebrating with you in April.
