The content covers economy and trade, retail, IT and telecom, transport and tourism, oil and energy, and agriculture. The company offers its subscribers business-to-consumer services (MENAFN mobile services, portal, e-newsletter, and investment simulation) and business-to-business services (research and advisory services), in addition to offering advertising opportunities.
Launched in 2000, MENAFN was established as a part of Al Bawaba’s restructuring plan. At the time, the platform offered visitors aggregated content from its own editors, freelance writers, and Reuters related to events and trends in the Middle East and North Africa. The expectation was that it would facilitate the expansion of businesses in these regions of the world. In 2009, the platform had 123,409 visits to the site on a monthly basis. Today, this platform has grown to become more than a news service in that it offers a range of media services to consumers and financial professionals.

Based in Delaware with operations in Amman, Jordan, MENAFN is a leading source of content advertising for companies in this region. Get your business on MENAFN by sending a press release.
