Emaar wins at Pan Arab Web Awards
Emaar.com earned top accolades at the Pan Arab Web Awards 2006 held recently in Amman, Jordan. The company’s easy-to-navigate, highly functional website drew the Golden Award in the Corporate Category, with Emaar’s flagship Burj Dubai project garnering a second special recognition in the Real Estate Category for its Burjdubai.com website.
“As the leading property developer, Emaar continues to be at the forefront of Dubai’s real estate industry in every sphere of activity, including our online communications,” said Claire Murphy, Marketing Manager, Emaar Properties, who accepted the award in Jordan along with Noaf Tahlak, Senior Marketing Executive, Emaar Properties.
“In an increasingly competitive real estate market, the emaar.com and burjdubai.com websites are vital marketing and awareness tools capable of reaching audiences at any time and in any part of the world,” said Noaf Tahlak. “These websites are our digital signature.”
Emaar’s corporate website www.emaar.com includes a virtual tour of its properties, a portal of the latest Emaar news and share prices and a ‘coming soon’ section providing information on upcoming projects.
The www.burjdubai.com website recreates the sleek and stylish design of the Burj Dubai tower – the tallest tower in the world when completed in 2008 and provides detailed information about the various components that make up the 500-acre Burj Dubai Downtown development.
Emaar Properties worked with online agency Flip Media to create the visually spectacular and user-friendly sites.
