The shortlist for the CIPS Middle East Awards has been unveiled following a record-breaking number of entries.

Firms from the airline, energy and real estate sectors are among those who have found their way onto the coveted shortlist from a field of 100 entries.

An awards organiser said: “The increase in the shortlist indicates the calibre of the entries has really grown – we have nine shortlisted in one category.

“It was very hard in some circumstance to have a cut-off point, but everyone on the list truly deserves their place.”
