International Media Production Zone

Dubai's International Media Production Zone (IMPZ) seeks to create a unique cluster environment for media production companies from across the industry value chain, and from across the world, to interact and collaborate effectively.

Catering exclusively to companies in the following industries – Graphic art, Publishing and Packaging – IMPZ is an initiative of the visionary Dubai government, under the patronage of parent company, Dubai Holding.

As a master developer, IMPZ will provide an environment of growth by building key facilities, investing in infrastructure, and forming a unique free zone that incorporates industrial, commercial & residential and community service projects under its mantle. The vast complex will be housed on a territory of over 43 million square feet of land, in the heart of commercial Dubai.

The IMPZ initiative is part of Dubai's vision to develop itself into a global media hub. As such, it will provide a pro-business environment, sophisticated technology and community infrastructure to support and foster the growth of media production.

The IMPZ initiative is designed to bring a wide range of benefits to the industry. As with other free zones in Dubai, companies joining IMPZ can avail of 100 per cent ownership and will be exempted from almost all corporate and personal taxes including those for machinery, equipment, raw materials and spares utilised by the industry. Furthermore, rules governing media production have been simplified to provide maximum ease of operations. The innovative concept of creating a cluster of similar businesses in physical proximity is not a new one to Dubai, and its strategic advantages have been proven to pay off. Co-existing at a single location will enable print companies to coordinate production activities efficiently with feeder companies like machinery and equipment providers and suppliers of raw materials and spares. For small and medium-sized businesses, the time and costs involved in sourcing requirements will be considerably reduced, as they may benefit from several shared services.

Situated on the Emirates Road, in close proximity to the Jebel Ali port and the recently announced Jebel Ali Airport City, IMPZ's ideal location will considerably ease imports, exports and logistics operations. The new airport, when completed, will have a handling capacity of about 120 million passengers annually along with 12 million tonnes of cargo.

As for the location of Dubai at the crossroads of Asia, Europe and Africa, and with its enviable proximity to multiple markets, it has already proven its mettle as a centre for various international operations
