The NPI team comprises 40 talented people in four key departments: design, editorial, sales and marketing, and administration.
Established in 1997, the company has grown holistically to maintain its core values of delivering quality with transparency, always aiming to deliver beyond the expectations of our customers, whether it is for marketing and brand placement or development of a bespoke published communications solution.
NPI was set up by the Nicholas family in 1997 with just one publication under its umbrella and nurtured to become a leading publishing force in the UAE with 17 proprietary titles, as well as regular and one-off client productions.
Branding and marketing have been integral to the company's development with each and every publication having a clear market and brand position, making them highly targeted, instantly recognisable and 100% relevant to both readership and advertising bases.
In 2007, NPI partnered with IIR Holdings, part of the Informa Group, to provide the company with a global backbone, able to reach every major market worldwide.

When we started this range of publications in the late 90s, we were ahead of a fast-rising tourism curve. Meetings and incentives were the buzzwords throughout the Gulf as destinations focused on quality over quantity, seeking to develop a high-end tourism infrastructure that would make the region a playground as well as a meeting place for the world's leading businesses. The response was astonishing and the tourism tides turned towards leisure as occupancies scaled giddy heights. Biggest was best and volume ruled the hospitality roost.
But in 2009, destinations are once again looking towards the high-yield end of the tourism market to replace leisure travellers lost in an economic wilderness. And the meet range of titles are ready and waiting to assist.
Meeting venues have space and hotels have room. Matching planners seeking unique destinations and suppliers of some of the best infrastructure and services in the world, the meetings titles are distributed to leading intra-regional and international planners with an interest in the Middle East as a venue for their events. Our database of industry professionals exceeds 10,000 and is rising...
