It is a very sought after jurisdiction. It was one of the first jurisdictions to offer these activities as a free zone. The infrastructure is tailored to meet the requirements of media businesses. And the Dubai Internet City is right next door.

As such, the office space costs are high and in much demand. But space constraints have forced the authorities to expand via the International Media Production Zone (IMPZ). The IMPZ is currently a suburb of Dubai but the rapid expansion of the city will bring it into a coveted area.

In respect to this vision, Media City created a world-class environment for every kind of media business, including media and marketing services, printing and publishing, music, film, digital services, leisure and entertainment, broadcasting and information agencies.
