Dubai Media City (DMC) was built by the Dubai government to establish UAE’s media foothold. Since its official opening in 2001, it has fast become a regional hub for media organizations including news agencies, publishing, online media, advertising, production, and broadcast facilities. The business park offers an environment for media companies and individuals to operate with collective synergy and freedom while enjoying value added services such as networking opportunities, venue management services, industry building programs and government services.
