The Gulf Sustainability Awards 2021 Countdown

Now that the finalists have been announced, days are passing quickly as we're getting closer to our annual Gulf Sustainability Awards ceremony. It will be our 6th anniversary this year and we're delighted to report that this LIVE event will be our first in-person experience since the COVID-19 pandemic.


The show will take place on the 20th September at Jumeirah Creek Side Hotel. There, more than 35 companies will have their presentations in the morning. Afterwards, our expert panel of independent judges will score them, before the big moment - the announcement of the winners.


We're so lucky to have the opportunity to meet and greet in person again. We invite you to share all the excitement with us - book your ticket here.


A lot has changed from last year. As massive inoculation takes place worldwide, the strict COVID-19 measures are settling down more with each day. The Gulf Sustainability Awards 2020 was a hybrid event, with presentations happening online and a limited number of people enjoying their day with us at the venue.


A great number of phenomenal entries were reviewed, but one exceeded over all others. Last year's overall winner of the Gulf Sustainability Awards was Splash - the largest retail company in the Gulf region with over 200 stores in 15 countries.


Although the hybrid ceremony was a responsible way of having the awards, we're aware that having them in person is a whole different world. And we're sure that as the quality of the competition goes up, the final results of our judges will fire up the atmosphere. But the competition part is just a fraction of the whole picture. There's also going to be a lot of networking and acquiring new contacts in the Gulf business world.


We want to remind you that our mission is to recognise the efforts of the leaders in the field of doing business in a sustainable way. Our goal is to promote going green in the Gulf.


That's why we're going to plant one Ghaf tree for each of our finalists during the ceremony. Our media partner Goumbook will help us pave the way for a better future.


We invite you to enrich our ceremony by being there with us on 20th September. The early bird booking period lasts until 19th August, which means that you can save up to 44% of the original ticket price if you book now.
