DIFC Media Majlis Opens Doors to Local and International Press CommunityPress Release26 Apr 2017 11:18 am
Dubai-UAE: 26 April, 2017 – Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), the leading international financial hub in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region, today launched the ‘DIFC Media Majlis’, a dedicated workspace for accredited members of the press.
Complemented by a resource-rich online Newsroom, DIFC’s latest initiative will allow journalists to work from a convenient, central location in the iconic Gate Building with a wealth of information made readily available.
Raja Al Mazrouei, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Corporate Communications at DIFC Authority, said: “DIFC is home to more than 1,600 firms and over 21,000 professionals, which make up one of the most dynamic financial services ecosystems in the region. At the DIFC Media Majlis, we are offering a platform for local and international journalists to work from a base that is located at the very heart of this cluster. With a wealth of industry news stemming from DIFC itself, this initiative will offer an opportunity for the press to engage directly with our community and further promote the financial services sector across the region and beyond.”
Raja Al Mazrouei added: “Our newly launched online Newsroom will provide a broader pool of media professionals with access to exclusive documents under embargo ahead of public dissemination. The Newsroom will also allow the sharing of information in a more transparent manner and therefore create open channels of communication.”
The multi-purpose DIFC Media Majlis can be used to work remotely or as a dedicated interview space, which will include high speed Wi-Fi connection, printing and scanning facilities, as well as complimentary refreshments. Access to DIFC parking will also be provided for accredited journalists.
In addition to offering access to exclusive documents under embargo, registered users of the online Newsroom will be able to view and use a selection of high-resolution images of DIFC and its key spokespeople, and register directly to DIFC’s many newsworthy industry events throughout the year, which include business announcements, partnerships and cultural events.
