Ras Al-Khaimah to host Mideast’s first ‘business Oscars’

The Stevie Awards, known widely as the “business Oscars,” has reached an agreement for a strategic partnership with Ras Al-Khaimah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RAK Chamber) for the first annual Middle East Stevie Awards to be held in Ras Al-Khaimah in February 2020.
The Middle East Stevie Awards will recognize innovation in the workplace from across 17 MENA countries and the awards program and gala prize-giving ceremony will be held in Ras Al-Khaimah for the first three years and at least every other year thereafter. The announcement was accompanied by a call from Stevie Awards for entries for the inaugural edition.
“Hosting the inaugural edition of the Middle East Stevie Awards here in Ras Al-Khaimah is a significant accomplishment, and another noteworthy milestone to add to the emirate’s successful track record, continuing on the same path of progress that has been taking place across all sectors, in line with the directives of our wise leadership,” said Mohamed Ali Al-Nuaimi, chairman of RAK Chamber.
“I was extremely gratified when the RAK Chamber approached us about partnering with them on a new Stevie Awards program for the Middle East and North Africa,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and executive chairman of the Stevie Awards. “We have recognized the achievements of executives, entrepreneurs, and organizations across the region for many years in our other programs. The time is right for the region to have its own Stevie’s program. We are excited to launch the Middle East Stevie Awards, and look forward to the first gathering of Stevie Award winners in the program in Ras Al-Khaimah in February.”
