Global Village, the world’s leading multicultural Festival Park and the region’s first family destination for culture, shopping, and entertainment, has appointed Publicis Groupe as its integrated communications partner following a competitive review. The Group, the region's marketing and communication leader, will be responsible for strategic planning, creative services, communications and public relations, managing social platforms, and securing advertising media for the Global Village.

We are more than confident that this partnership will elevate our marketing, advertising, and communications by supporting our existing communications platforms and developing new ones.”

The newly-established partnership will offer the scale, resources, and global business acumen to enable Global Village to realize its full potential.
