IJGlobal Awards 2020 – MENA Companies Shortlist

We are delighted to announce the shortlist for the Companies section of MENA for the IJGlobal Awards 2020. The judging session is scheduled for mid-April and the winners will be announced in the summer issue of the magazine that is out towards the end of June.

The companies section of the awards will be voted on by the MENA judging panel – a team of highly-experienced infrastructure and energy professionals who have long played central roles in the delivery of investments across the region.

IJGlobal Awards 2020 has attracted more submissions than previous years (thanks to a journalist-led marketing campaign) which, sadly, will not translate into keeping Dubai dinner guests at their tables until past midnight as we will not be hosting physical events due to Coronavirus.

However, we are currently planning for virtual awards for each of the regions which will be hosted by IJGlobal's senior journalist for that beat. Once the winners have been chosen, our BD manager Doug Roberts will be reaching out to the victorious to discuss acceptance interviews.
