Other than in the unique Bake Saadiyat beach event in 2015 where attendees wore beachwear, Media Mondays dresscode has always been Business Casual and Local National Dress. The media sponsors for the last event were Narchos Productions and ActiveMedia, while the official natural mineral water was Lanjarón from historic Arabic Andalus, Spain. Media Mondays also tries to always spread exposure for strong community programs such as Operation Smile UAE. And they take legal advice from Global Advocacy and Legal Counsel, UAE.
Since 2010, Media Mondays has held events in major cities including Dubai, Abu Dhabi, New York and London. The original name for the event was Dubai Media Network and Dubai Media Club, but by 2011 the founders merged together and agreed Media Mondays “rang a better bell.” The founding members of the popular event include Jason Moore,
Asem Habib, Andre Popov, Jude Hadfield and local partner Khalid Al Nuaimi. The team has worked great together over the years with one goal in mind: to make the event better for attendees so they want to come back for more “Media Mondays.” They
try to make their brand imitate as much as possible “the Emirati spirit of selfless hospitality.” And they hope to expand that brand to the world’s biggest cities.
