ShortList UAE now live

ShortList UAE officially launched its online platforms today, and, with its print publication to follow in September. Falling under the umbrella of Arab Publishing Partners (APP), part of ITP Publishing Group, the websites are headed up by Shortlist UAE Editor-in-Chief Eddie Taylor and Digital Editor Sarah Garden.

The websites include features on restaurants and cafes, bars and clubs, film and TV, events and attractions, as well as shopping and style – all relevant to their respective cities. Differing from Shortlist’s UK website, the UAE counterparts will be aimed at both women and men. Both websites will be updated regularly and will include searchable entertainment listings for each city.


ShortList welcomes Editor-in-Chief

Arab Publishing Partners (APP) has appointed Eddie Taylor as Editor-in-Chief of soon-to-be-launched ShortList Dubai and ShortList Abu Dhabi.

Eddie Taylor is an editor, journalist and content specialist with close to two decades of experience in developing, launching and editing consumer titles. Having enjoyed senior publishing roles in London, New York, Amman and Dubai, Eddie was most recently Editor-in-Chief of Esquire Weekend.

“With its fast pace, unique tone and innovative features, ShortList is a magazine I have long admired so it is incredibly exciting to be handed the responsibility of launching the title in the UAE,” says Eddie. “The market is, I believe, ready for a mass circulation weekly and accompanying website that combines the best of what the country has to offer in terms of dining, entertainment and events, as well as the latest fashions, looks and accessories available in the nation’s stores. We are confident that our blend of information, insight and entertainment will make ShortList an essential read for every resident and tourist.”

Going online in March this year, and will be the first products in the ShortList brand portfolio to launch.
