connecting people,
places and brands


Place Communications is all about connecting people, places and brands with their stakeholders.
We do this strategically, creatively and efficiently.
We are a full service communications consultancy that specialises in corporate, Business to Business and Business to Consumer communications.
We are a collaborative team who sees the big picture and delivers campaigns that are aligned with our clients' businesses and deliver return on investment.

We are connected and have operated out of Abu Dhabi since 2008. Our network encompasses media, Government bodies, Non Government Organisations, Non Profit Organisations, schools and universities. We draw on these connections to plan and implement unique client campaigns.

We are a diverse team – each one of us is an outstanding communicator from a different background, with an exceptional skillset. This enables us to bring more to the table, in terms of talent and style, and ultimately makes us more interesting to work with.

We embrace new age media and are connected to key influencers in Abu Dhabi. Our work on some of Abu Dhabi's most successful projects and events has exposed us to prominent individuals in the Emirate, who we have had repeated experiences working with, on several campaigns.


We are an experienced team with the right balance of creativity and execution – consistently producing outstanding results for our clients.

Place Communications is built around its people. And our culture is simple – clients come first!
