While Dubai might be home to its fair share of annual conferences and industry events, there is one gathering in particular that seems to strike a chord each year on a purely creative level.
The Dubai Lynx International Festival of Creativity takes place at the Madinat Jumeirah this week, and will host some of the most celebrated minds in the creative communications industry. A sister event to the industry-defining Cannes Lions Festival that takes place on the south coast of France each June, the MENA event is into its 10th year and has built up quite a standing in Dubai’s calendar.
The best work in design, film, print, radio, digital, PR and media will be on display, as well as a host of innovative start-up companies and cutting-edge technologies. More than a hundred sessions will take place over the next three days, bringing together people from all over the world, everyone from calligraphers to neuroscientists, will share big ideas and inspire each other.
