Deadline looms for CommsMEA Awards
Region's telecom companies given one week extension to submit nominations
With the deadline for nominations for the CommsMEA Awards originally set for October 31, nominations have been rolling in for the sixth edition of the annual event.
The nominations that have been received so far have already exceeded previous editions in both quality and quantity.
But with the deadline for the awards coming so soon after GITEX, the region's leading ICT event, it is also apparent that some companies may need a few additional days to prepare their nominations. For this reason, the CommsMEA team has decided to extend the deadline for nominations until 11am, November 6th. So if you have not already prepared a nomination and are still interested to do so, please visit the dedicated CommsMEA Awards website by clicking here.
The CommsMEA Awards, which is the leading awards event for the Middle East and Africa region's telecom sector, is open to all companies with an involvement in the sector, including operators, vendors, regulators and application providers.
The winners of the 2011 CommsMEA Awards, which will be selected during the judging process in the first half of November, will be announced in front of the cream of the region's telecoms sector during a gala dinner, which is being held at Jumeirah Emirates Towers on November 29.
