The projects industry is vital to the GCC. It creates the infrastructure that improves life, supports the economy, and lays the foundations for future growth.
As well as enabling other areas to succeed, projects themselves drive growth. They create jobs, provide training, support local businesses support consumer and business spending, enable knowledge transfer and they foster innovation.
Celebrating excellence in GCC projects
The purpose of MEED Projects Awards is to celebrate the best that the GCC projects industry has to offer. MEED’s aim is to support the development of the region by supporting this crucially important sector.
The MEED Projects Awards has become the leading stamp of quality and achievement for anyone operating in the GCC projects sector. The awards not only recognise the construction element of project delivery but also consider the value and quality of a project throughout its entire life cycle, from the design concept through to engineering and construction and its wider contribution to society and to the environment.
3,106 projects with a combined value of more than $286bn of projects were completed across the GCC in 2017 and 2018.
The 2019 edition anticipates a high volume of entries as new projects and teams demonstrate their contribution to the GCC economy, environmental awareness and success in architecture, engineering and construction.
The MEED Projects Awards is the event of the year for the GCC projects industry providing an annual get together for the region’s projects community.
The MEED Projects Awards are independently judged and every project is assessed purely on the merits of its entry.

Who are the Judges of the 2019 MEED Project Awards?
What is the Judging Process?
The judging will take place in two stages:
Stage 1: Regional judging days hosted by MEED. Chaired by our established team of regional Head Judges alongside hand-picked regional industry experts we will spend a day vetting the entries from each country and selecting our Finalists and National Winners.
Stage 2: The regional Head Judges meet in Dubai with additional industry recognised experts to debate and discuss each entry and its suitability to win the overall GCC award in each category.
Why is there an entry fee?
The entry fee is an administration fee charged to cover the judging expenses.
How do I choose the best category for an entry?
Each category drop-down includes a short description. However, we have analysed the completed projects within the eligibility time period and are ready to help you select your category should you need it. Do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
May I submit the same entry in different categories?
It is unlikely that your project will be relevant to multiple sectors but if applicable yes. It is worth checking the project credibility against the Innovation Medal and Engineer of the Year too.
How can I associate my company with the MEED Projects Awards if my company does not have an eligible project for this year’s edition?
The MEED Projects Awards campaign unites the industry with a full marketing communications campaign from November 2018 through to the summer of 2019. Moreover, in April we will bring together the best of the industry for one night, making it an absolute must-attend for anyone looking to network or any organisation looking to engage with these leading firms and individuals.
