Don’t Panic Events launches MENA Search Awards


Don’t Panic Events, the company behind the UK Search Awards, is launching a regional version of
the show.

The MENA Search Awards will celebrate and reward innovation and achievements of the search industry for agencies and brands either based in or serving the MENA region.

The awards will be held at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Dubai, on May 10.

They will feature 26 industry categories including sector-specific ones such as best use of search in retail; awards for campaigns; and awards for software, teams and agencies.

Campaign is a media partner of the awards, and Campaign’s editor will be on the judging panel.

The awards organisers said: “The MENA Search Awards is one of the industry’s few digital awards schemes where judges are not permitted to enter.
