Q Communications begins expansion programme

Dubai-based communications consultancy Q Communications has begun a new operation in Abu Dhabi – the first step in its expansion programme across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). With a portfolio of current clients including Jumeirah Restaurant Group, Al Gurg Group, and the Accor Group, Q Communications will be building on its reputation upon the launch of its Abu Dhabi office, known as Q Communications ME. The office is planned to open on October 1, 2015 within the twofour54 hub, and will provide fully integrated public relations, social media, digital and event services.

“Abu Dhabi and Dubai are both cities of innovation and vision, among the most forward-thinking in the world,” says Elsa Roodt, Director and Co-founder, Q Communications. “For us there was no question our second office should be in Abu Dhabi. The hospitality sector is expanding and thriving and this provides and excellent opportunity for Q Communications ME with our unrivalled experience within this sector.”

Katie Harvey, Director and Co-founder, Q Communications, adds “We’ve been working behind the scenes over the last few months building a strong team to run Q Communications ME in Abu Dhabi. We have great talent joining the team, they will bring global knowledge, experience of working with some of the world’s most well-known brands and talent, as well as a wealth of cutting edge techniques to the consultancy. We’re really excited to announce the team over the next couple of weeks, so watch this space.”

DPQ Communications rebrands

Dubai-based integrated PR and digital communications consultancy, DPQ Communications has rebranded as Q Communications. The consultancy has expanded since launching in Dubai in 2010 and now employs a 20-strong team, with the new brand identity building on this growth. Q Communications will continue to offer fully integrated public relations, social media, digital and event services to its clients, including Lush, the Accor Group and Tweezerman.

“The rebrand is a natural evolution of the brand,” says Katie Harvey, Director and Co-founder, Q Communications. “We originally launched DPQ following the launch of our sister company DubaiPartyQueen. The business and the client portfolio has grown and changed over the past five years, and it was time for the name to reflect this. No longer are we a Dubai centric agency, instead we work across the region in a number of industries including education, oil and gas, retail and hospitality.”
