New partnership with Fujairah Media Free Zone announced

June 28, 2018

To celebrate ten years working together, Creative City Fujairah has announced that it has signed a new strategic partnership with Virtuzone, further enhancing the relationship to recognise the #1 company formation specialists in the Middle East as their principal preferred partner.

This partnership will see both entities further align their sales, marketing and channel strategies, in particular to align mutual expansion strategies, through a combination of road shows, events and geographical targeting.

Creative City, empowered by Virtuzone, continues to be the fastest growing free zone in the UAE, and both entities have jointly pioneered several unique consumer offerings, including financing both new licences and renewals; the 1 hour license approval; the zero visa license package; and the provision of a supportive ecosystem for Creative City customers set up through Virtuzone (no one else provides end-to-end telecoms, logistics, e-commerce, accounting, financing, HR, legal, global office presence, digital and design support from such industry leaders as Etisalat, Aramex, KPMG, Shopify, Beehive and Regus).

Creative City Fujairah was established in 2007 and has pioneered the Northern Emirates’ niche role as value for money providers of 100% foreign owned, easy-to-establish, and inexpensive to operate free zone entities. Often imitated but never duplicated, just like its principal partner Virtuzone, Creative City continues to innovate and drive value for its customers in the media, management & business consultancy, IT and digital sectors.

Virtuzone, this month, despite approaching its tenth year of operation is still registering more new companies than any other independent agency, and such is the support it offers its customers that renewal rates sit at over 76%, a decade down the line. This is impressive data when considering the main target market is startups who are understandably in need of support during their early years.

Upon signing, Virtuzone’s CEO, George Hojeige, remarked that this partnership gives the customer the best combination of value, service and support, demonstrating the best in private/public partnerships, a key driving force in the UAE economy, where startups are vital for Dubai 10x and UAE 2071. Amged Badr Kamel, Head of Creative City, the Fujairah Media Free Zone, added that by empowering Virtuzone to build long-term customer relationships, Creative City ensures customers get the best advice, the best service and the best prices, key to an increasingly well-educated consumer, especially given the recent raft of announcements in this sector.
