  • With the arrival of Ramadan, a reflective atmosphere sweeps across the Middle East, offering brands a prime opportunity to strengthen their identity and connect with consumers on a spiritual level. This year is no exception, as brands have once again embraced the spirit of the season with innovative marketing campaigns designed to resonate with customers.

    The festivities kicked off with the launch of the #RamadanInDubai campaign, spearheaded by the Government of Dubai Media Office (GDMO). This initiative set the stage for a wave of creative and engaging marketing endeavours aimed at connecting with audiences during this special time of year.

    Additionally, Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) launched a series of Ramadan events. These include the fifth edition of the Ramadan Heroes initiative and ‘Ramadan Nights’ at cultural and heritage venues. In partnership with talabat UAE and the Emirates Red Crescent, the initiative encourages the public to donate Iftar and Suhoor meals through the Ramadan Heroes Virtual Restaurant on the talabat UAE app.

    These campaigns encourage public and private sectors across the region to redefine Ramadan’s rich cultural heritage in their unconventional styles. Explore a few inspiring  Ramadan campaigns that have become the talk of the country.
