CPI’s business division consists of the following titles:

SME Advisor Middle East

SME Advisor is aimed at business owners and senior executives across the GCC. Armed with practical advice, it has been highlighting key business issues for the small and medium enterprise segment since its launch in 2005. We understand that often, in small and medium enterprises, specialist business decisions are made by the owners and not by an army of c-level executives. At the same time, our content is equally relevant and useful for specialist, senior executives in mid-level enterprises. The magazine style is consumer, conversational and colourful.

SME Advisor is responsible for the largest audited business awards in the region. Our 2011 Stars of Business awards received an unprecedented 3,800 audited nominations from the best and most proactive businesses across all verticals.

Private Sector Qatar

This is the Qatar edition of SME Advisor, tailor made for the private sector spanning SMEs as well as large MNCs. It was originally launched in Arabic but we have also launched a separate English edition from February. This is a monthly magazine published by CPI and presented by Qatar Development Bank. It is aimed at business owners and senior executives in Qatar. Armed with practical advice, it highlights key issues for the business community. Just like with SME Advisor’s initiatives in the UAE, Private Sector helps maximise opportunities and growth in Qatar through initiatives spanning magazine, events, Website and social media.

Trade and Export Middle East

We have also launched a trade and export magazine – imaginatively titled Trade and Export Middle East – in association with Dubai Exports, an agency of the Department of Economic Development.

This is a monthly magazine in English and is aimed at traders, exporters, re-exporters and producers in the region. As with all our titles, it includes a converged media platform. Trade and Export Middle East advises on all matters related to trade including updates, regulations, logistics, opportunities, legal, finance, marketing, management and much more.

The aim of the magazine is to increase the number of exporters, build international trade networks, improve the value of exports by enhancing business performance, present advice and opportunities for non-traditional exporters, provide the latest information on local and international trade fairs, as well as match buyers with exporters.
