The organisers of Dubai Lynx have announced that the Festival of Creativity will no longer take place in September 2020. The next festival will now be held from 7-10 March 2021. The event was first pushed from March 2020 to September 2020.
Ian Fairservice, vice chairman, Dubai Lynx, said, “During this global crisis, we want to support our customers and partners and respond to the needs of the wider marketing and creative industries across the region. Dubai Lynx will continue to bring the MENA creative community together and provide inspiration, as we look towards celebrating and honouring creativity at the festival in 2021.”
Philip Thomas, chairman, Cannes Lions and Dubai Lynx, added, “As the world manages the impact of Covid-19, the MENA marketing and creative industries are facing immense challenges, alongside the global creative community. We are announcing this move today to give our customers and partners in the region clear guidance and remove speculation about the Festival this year. We look forward to honouring creative work in 2021, when the world is hopefully more secure.”
