O2 Network was recently named as the “Leading PR & Marketing Company” of the year during the Arab Investment Summit 2010 taking place in Abu Dhabi at the Park Rotana hotel. The award criteria are based upon nominations from other companies as well as the results from an independent review panel, recognizing quality of work and innovation in methodology. Ahmed Hamadeh, Executive Manager of the O2 Abu Dhabi office, received the award on behalf of the team of nearly 80 employees.
With seven offices spread throughout the Middle East, Hamadeh said that he accepted the acknowledgment with great pleasure on behalf of all of the network’s executive staff. “This recognition really does belong to our executives on the ground, no question. Their desire to bring something truly original to the Middle East market has been the inspiration behind our growth throughout 2009 and 2010, and it is that kind of personal ambition that has taken this company to where it is today.”
More than 200 investors and government representatives attended the two-day conference to explore major developments, challenges, and success stories in the area of investment and entrepreneurship in the Middle East. Key topics focused on leveraging the initiatives undertaken by governments—including privatization, de-regulation & incentives—to attract private investments to burgeoning sectors of the economy. Strengthening public and private partnerships were also highlighted as a fundamental step in promoting sustainable development throughout the region.
