About Dubai Media City

Dubai Media City or DMC was established in 2000. It is a regional media hub and the most suitable district to open a media business. That said, it was initially conceived to be a purely commercial area, thus it may offer only a few villas and apartments. 

Many firms from all around the globe have offices here and many more come every year. DMC is a free economic zone, so it is a fruitful place to open a business.
