2012 was a winning year for Stacom Mediavest, punctuated by pivotal successes and significant milestones. As the year came to a close, SMG MENA was named Campaign Middle East’s Media Network of the Year and Communicate’s Media Agency of The Year. These top honors make SMG MENA the most awarded media agency in the Middle East and North African region, it claims.

In 2012, the group garnered a staggering 17 regional and international awards including Media Agency of the Year at the MENA Cristals in Mzaar, Lebanon. It was also the most awarded media agency at the Dubai Lynx and the only regional network to win at the Festival of Media Global Awards in Switzerland and at the Internationalist in New York, thanks to Olay’s ‘Eyes of Arabia’ campaign. More industry accolades followed in November 2012, when SMG was the only media agency to win Gold at the Gemas Effies for Emirates’ ‘Hello Tomorrow’ campaign.
