IBM Middle East named as regional ‘Superbrand’
IBM Middle East has been presented with the Superbrand title at the first awards ceremony hosted by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Superbrands Council at the Nad Al-Sheba Country Club this week.
IBM was awarded the Superbrands status in recognition of the strength of its brand, which encompasses everything from its marketing, products and technology through to the end-user experience. Recognition as a Superbrand is voted by the Superbrands Council, which is made up of eminent figures from the region’s marketing and branding industry.

It also supports major Middle East government initiatives and plays a key role in addressing the Information Technology (IT) skills shortage across the region by actively implementing long-term initiatives that will provide resources, education and training.
