One of the most anticipated Middle East awards show, the GR8! Women Awards is back this season! Now in its sixth year, the ceremony will honour top women achievers from the Middle East right from Kuwait, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Qatar as well as India. Hosted by prominent Indian TV personalities Anu and Shashi Ranjan, the event will be held in Dubai on March 19th, 2016 at the Sofitel Dubai Palm Resort & Spa.
This year, the Awards will be held on the occasion of International Women’s Day with the aim of felicitating the phenomenal work done by women in the region. Right from Banking and Finance to Healthcare, Indian Cinema and Humanitarian, the spotlight will be on women who have set a benchmark in various fields.
Further, the evening will host a glamorous fashion show where the city’s top models will walk the ramp and showcase dazzling collections by renowned Indian as well as international designers. Every year, the high fashion black tie evening attracts Dubai’s crème de la crème including people from all walks of life such as dignitaries, industry leaders, corporate heads, celebrities, and entrepreneurs. Speaking about the show, Anu Ranjan highlights, “It gives me great pleasure and joy to bring the Awards back to Dubai. Over the years, we have received immense support and encouragement from the diverse diaspora of the region, as we continue to applaud women who have gone beyond their duty to inspire and lead by example.”
Launched 15 years ago in India, the GR8! Women Awards is a platform to celebrate women achievers who have broken all barriers and set high standards. Brainchild of Anu and Shashi Ranjan, editor and publisher of GR8! TV magazine, the Awards have successfully helped to create awareness of relevant issues concerning women in the subcontinent such as female foeticide, breast cancer, and safeguarding the interest of the girl child.
