The 3-day IRECMS Dubai 2021 event concludes with a glamorous awards ceremony

Dubai: Now in its 4th Edition, IRECMS is a global platform that aims to lift the benchmark for Community Management and associated industries around the world. IRECMS is the only event of its type to have been supported by seven prestigious industry bodies- Community Associations Institute (USA), CAI – (Middle East), CAI (South Africa), Strata Community Association (Australia), Middle East Facility Management Association (UAE), National Association of Community Managers (Spain) and Japan Property Management Association (Japan).
The 3-day event commenced on 7th Dec 2021 with Masterclasses conducted in collaboration with Community Associations Institute Middle East (CAIME). The 4 sessions that covered the spectrum of Community Management- Operations, Finance, Technology and Customer Service- were packed with attendees from the USA, Australia, Spain, Uruguay, Colombia, Bahrain, Panama and Germany besides the UAE. The conference, scheduled on 8th Dec 2021 at the luxurious JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai, had a footfall of over 300+ attendees and 35+ international speakers from 10 countries.

There’s a great advantage here, bringing people from the industry, from different parts of the world under one roof. It’s an event not to be missed by any community manager or anyone interested in this industry for sure. I have definitely enjoyed it this year and I look forward to 2022.

What distinguishes IRECMS Awards is that the organisers do not accept sponsorships for the awards gala event to avoid any conflict of interest which ensures that the most deserving companies win purely on merit through a transparent and autonomous process with an independent, international jury

There is no platform similar to ours at this point. In every way, including the awards, we have made a conscious effort to distinguish ourselves from the rest. For instance, our awards event had no sponsors and was conducted in a completely transparent manner. As organisers, we DID NOT interfere with the decision of the Jury.
