SHAMS was launched in January 2017 to serve as catalyst for creative and media business activities in UAE. Through innovative facilities and pro entrepreneurial incentives, the zone yielded a thriving performance last year, completing over 4000 business setups. To commemorate its success and provide an impetus for future company formations in the region, the SHAMS authority hosted The SHAMS Channel Partner Appreciation Event on 29th of May 2018. The event involved a series of award ceremonies to appreciate the efforts of leading business consultancy agencies followed by an Iftar dinner.
