Welcome to
Havas Middle East

We Are Havas

The Havas Village is a truly unique proposition – creative, media and PR all under one roof. Our philosophy is to work together seamlessly, building teams around our clients’ needs not our own.

Over 200 of the world’s brightest and bravest, working in a place we call the Havas Village. Well, we say ‘Village’ – except imagine if your neighbours were some of the most connected, creative companies around, all brilliant in their own right but with one shared aim: to create work that makes a meaningful difference. For our clients, our colleagues and our culture. Like all good neighbours, at the Havas Village we leave our back doors open – always popping in to borrow skills, talent, brains, and even the odd cup of sugar. You get the idea.

Our Havas mission: To make a meaningful difference to the brands, the businesses and the lives of the people we work with.

Our People

We are a home for collaborators. At a time when the industry has fragmented across specialities and disciplines, we're proud to be truly integrated - physically and philosophically.

This way, we work faster, smarter and better.

Meaningful Brands

Meaningful BrandsMeaningful Brands
Our proprietary research study Meaningful Brands (that spans 350,000 people worldwide, 31 markets, 22 industries and 1,800 brands each year) discovered that:

77%

of brands could disappear and no one would care

84%

of consumers think companies and brands should communicate honestly about their commitments and promises

58%

of the content provided by brands is not meaningful to consumers

It’s these key findings that have lead to the creation of our Meaningful Brands strategic framework. A unique approach that has allowed us to understand that a brand’s value – how meaningful it is to its consumers - is defined by a combination of ‘functional’, ‘personal’ and ‘collective’ benefits.

Used across strategy and planning teams in all our agencies around the world, Meaningful Brands acts as the ‘glue’ in our integrated process and provides a common approach to strategic thinking to ensure we deliver meaningful business growth for our clients.
