The agency has been tasked with driving the Finnish mobile brand’s regional PR across the UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait and Oman, with the win following a multi-agency pitch held over a two-month period. The company will be responsible for reviving Nokia’s reputation in the Lower Gulf region, as well as launching the new N9 smartphone.
The appointment follows DABO & Co’s winning of the public relations accounts for Argentinian restaurant Gaucho Dubai and Image Nation Abu Dhabi’s first Emirati film project Sea Shadow (pictured), which premiered at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival.
Jason Leavy, managing director at DABO & Co, said: “We are delighted to have secured such prolific wins, which come at a significant period of growth for the agency. Our strong market knowledge and proven track record with leading brands, make DABO & Co the perfect choice for global players such as Nokia and Gaucho, as well as leading local companies like Image Nation Abu Dhabi. We look forward to sharing our expertise with the brands, and working together to create and implement successful communications campaigns.”
