New Middle East Marketing news site

AdNation is a news site and ideas forum for the region’s advertising, branding, media and marketing industries. It’s a space where creative professionals in the Middle East can exchange ideas, whether it’s about innovations in brand design, creative use of media, and just mouthing off about the latest campaigns. Membership is limited to the most intelligent, articulate, opinionated and attractive people in the business. Allegedly.

Ad Nation ME seems promising (so far). Though its quite Web 2.0 friendly (video, RSS, Polls, clouds...etc), signing up for commenting, contribution and participation is only for the selected Advertising , marketing and PR socialista’s and NOT for the commoners like yours truly..


  • I think it's a good idea to have a small niche to contribute. That way they avoid BS from commoners like yours truly :D

  • Thanks for the mention. Our aim ad AdNation is to keep the site relevant to the industry, so we'll happily add anyone who has something to contribute (stories, gossip, etc...).

    Write in to with suggestions.

  • Mr. Beer ..

    Thank you for dropping by. I can understand restricting access to contribution part. But may I suggest opening up the comments section for the commoners? Opinion diversity creates instigates dialogue and creativity. What’s value does an "ideas forum" bring if only the "selected few" are allowed to share or evaluate their "ideas" ? :)

  • It's something we'll keep an eye on - but the main reasons why we're not doing it now can be expressed in four words: 'Dubai Media Observer' and 'spam'.

    We haven't officially launched yet, anyway, so we'll see how it goes to start.

    But - anyone who has something (useful) to say can join: anyone who wants in - drop me a line...
