Sustainability Middle East (SME), a brand-new publishing arm of CBM Media, has announced that it is expanding its conference, magazine, and new awards ceremony (SME Excellence Awards) in order to meet new demand.
The SME Awards intend to highlight the very best of sustainability in the Middle East, and due to a high number of nominees, sponsors and speakers, the awards is to be expanded with a new event date in early March.
The exact date is March 9, 2023. The awards ceremony, which is to be held in Dubai, UAE, will welcome VVIP’s, dignitaries, business leaders and leading academics to enjoy an evening of recognition for the world-changing work that’s being done in the region.
Renowned media personality, Dubai One TV Presenter Katie Jensen will be the presenter at the event, for which nominations remain open until the end of January.
The SME Awards will see individuals, businesses and VIPs recognised for the very best work in sustainability on a very special evening in Dubai.
The SME Awards will cover a variety of sectors, including:

Special Recognition Awards
The SME Awards will cap off SME’s launch into the industry, following its inaugural magazine, ‘Leaders in Sustainability’ and the Sustainability Middle East’s ‘Leaders in Sustainability’ Conference, which will see leaders from various sectors taking part in debates as regional and global experts.
SME’s Publisher and CEO Sam Khan said: “We originally intended for these awards to be a pioneering introduction of sustainable excellence to the region, however, the SME Awards seem to have caught the imagination of many in the region meaning it’s time to expand.
“I have a strong background in awards ceremonies and conferences, and a big passion for sustainability, henceforth the team and I at SME can’t wait to get this show on the road.”
