Our relationship with Active began at the GITEX 2017 event. We started working with them only a short time before what is our most important industry event of the year. Within minutes of the first day working with Active DMC, they had already lined up interviews to take place at the event.
Having only a small amount of preparation time before a big event and with other clients to look after, many agencies would have used excuses not to aim for ambitious results, but Active met the challenge head on with a can-do and professional attitude. It was brilliant how much they kept us updated throughout the show with each of the confirmed interviews and meetings. We ended up securing some great coverage in top-tier daily newspapers and trade publications. It’s great to go from being in such a difficult position to coming out strong in the end.
Over the year, Active DMC kept the momentum going strongly, quickly winning over the admiration and trust of the local sales and marketing team. At GITEX 2018, we were able to push everything one step further than the previous year and did even better. Thank you to the Active team for consistently delivering for us.

Arbor Networks were looking to extend their reach within EMEA and generate more awareness in the Middle East. Active DMC were highly recommended, so we reached out and asked them to partner with us on this exciting new venture.
Our first major project was GITEX 2014. The Active team assigned to our account were meticulous in their efforts to secure key journalist meetings. Over the years the service and support they gave Arbor Networks was at such a continuously high professional standard that we engaged with them to manage our relationships with key journalists and extend our reach into Social Media.
The team at Active knows their stuff! They are always available and go above and beyond the brief to ensure the job gets done and the results have been excellent. They think outside the box but always within budget and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Forcepoint has been working with Active DMC since 2017, as they have supported our public relations,
social media and events across UAE and latterly the KSA. They have a strong understanding of our
industry, and excellent media relationships. They consistently deliver strong media results, and in
addition support our presence (real or virtual) at events in the region, delivering interviews and meetings
for our senior, international executives.
Director of Corporate Communications, Forcepoint
One of the best parts of working with Active is the feeling that they are part of the extended team. Being
based in the UK it can be tricky to know what’s going on on the ground, but Active have always worked
closely, effectively and professionally with our team of sales and marketing people based in Dubai. The
levels of trust between Active and all our media spokespeople are high, and the team spend time
developing these relationships.
When our CEO Matt Moynahan came to the Middle East on tour, Active stepped up to become part of
the integrated team, working with sales, marketing and channel execs to ensure the communications
and PR part of our tour ran smoothly. They generated excellent media interviews and also landed byline
opportunities in key titles.
Staff turnover is low, and the team we have do understand what we need, as well as provide us with
honest advice on how we can achieve our business goals. I’d have no hesitation recommending them as a
PR and communications partner in the Middle East.
