PR Newswire Announces the Launch of its Dubai Operation

    PR Newswire's Latest Expansion Will Provide Companies Within the Dubai
    International Financial Centre (DIFC) With Access to Leading
    Communications Services

    LONDON, June 26 /CNW/ - PR Newswire, the global leader in commercial news
distribution, today announced the launch of its Dubai operation, which will
provide companies within the DIFC with access to PR Newswire's leading
communications products and services.


    "Dubai is experiencing unprecedented economic development, and many new
organisations are establishing roots in this prosperous and growing emirate,"
said Lisa Ashworth, CEO, PR Newswire EMEA. "These organisations, and those
with established businesses, have significant communications needs, and our
more than 50 years of experience makes us uniquely positioned to assist them."
    PR Newswire's news distribution, media and investor targeting services
are well placed to help organisations within the DIFC to establish their
brand, build their investor base, and communicate their stories to the media,
customers and investors, locally and globally.
    PR Newswire has been extremely successful in building a local presence
and investing significant resources in various countries around the world. PR
Newswire Middle East Ltd's plans include hiring significant numbers of new
staff; investing in additional products and services that meet the specific
needs of local customers; and opening a second office with sister company,
CMPi in Abu Dhabi.
    Jeremy Derenne, PR Newswire's EMEA Sales Director, commented "Because of
the sophistication of businesses based in the DIFC, we expect to see a strong
interest from organisations in the use of digital media in public relations
and investor relations communications. PR Newswire has experience with digital
delivery of content in other similarly advanced markets throughout the world,
and we look forward to bringing these services to customers in Dubai."
    PR Newswire is committed to expanding its business into high growth
regions where communication is key. Recently, PR Newswire Europe announced
strategic partnerships with Les Echos (France's leading financial newspaper)
and OMX (the Nordic Exchange) to assist local businesses with distributing
their messages to local and global audiences.
