Meet the judges: Future Enterprise Awards reveals expert panel, the definitive platform in the Middle East for IT content, is delighted to announce the judging panel for its inaugural Future Enterprise Awards 2018. 

Future Enterprise Awards

The Awards will be held on Sunday 14th October 2018 at Emirates Towers, Dubai – coinciding with the first day of GITEX Technology Week, which has brought together the most renowned names in technology for the past 38 years to showcase global technology and innovations, right here in Dubai. Future Enterprise Awards are designed to recognise corporates and government departments across industry sectors that are truly transformative and innovating.

Nominations have been created by the in-house editorial team and high-quality submissions are currently being accepted from the most innovative and business-driving enterprises in the Middle East across 21 categories.

These submissions will then be put forward to a judging panel comprising the region’s top tech figureheads. After a rigorous and criteria-driven evaluation, the panel will decide which top 5 nominated enterprises are truly reinventing, transforming and innovating in each category. These top nominees will then be put to an online peer voting process.

The judging panel features a collection of the Middle East’s digital leaders across a range of industries – many of whom have brought transformative strategies to their respective organisations in recent years, and know first-hand what it takes to be a truly innovative business.
