Country Insights: Exploring Communications in Egypt
October 17 | 12:00 - 13:00 UTC
Home to almost 100 million people, most of whom are under the age of 25, Egypt isn’t just the birthplace of civilization. The country has a thriving communications industry, with dozens of home-grown agencies competing against multinational brands. Given Egypt’s recent history, there’s a growing awareness of the importance of communications and public relations, both to domestic and international audiences.
As part of our Country Insights series of webinars, this October we will be heading to Egypt. One of the industry’s leading practitioners on the agency side, Mai Abaza, will talk us through how the comms sector is developing, and what we can expect to see from the country’s agencies and brands.
In this webinar, you will learn:
• How communications is best defined within the context of Egypt;
• What matters to Egyptian stakeholders, and how they want to engage, and
• Why a local understanding of Egyptian culture is vital to succeed in public relations.
