A Year in Review at Katch

As we embark on another year at Katch International, now is the perfect time to reflect on the incredible successes we achieved over the last 12 months during what has been an unforgettable year

As the curtains draw on 2023, we are elated to reminisce about the monumental strides and milestones that have defined Katch International's exceptional journey. The past year was a rollercoaster of emotions from start to finish, filled with plenty of challenges, adventures, and lots of truly memorable experiences. It has been a celebratory year at its core as Katch marked its lucky 13th year in business and this achievement has been all down to the invaluable relationships that have propelled us to new heights within the vibrant landscape of public relations.

Katch team in office

We are so grateful to our clients, both old and new, as they are the foundation of our agency, and we have relished building even stronger relationships with them over the past 12 months. As we look back on what has been a remarkable year, we are truly humbled to think of where this agency began and where it is today. Working with some of the biggest names in F&B, hospitality, real estate, live events, and so much more over the last year, Katch has continued to build on our prior achievements to record our most successful year to date.

A Year of Unprecedented Achievements

Pinnacle Client Wins and Collaborative Triumphs

In 2023, Katch International recorded a series of astounding victories, solidifying our standing as a pioneering PR agency in Dubai. Our ability to cultivate enduring relationships and craft bespoke communication strategies resulted in a spectrum of esteemed client acquisitions across diverse industries.

Doing things the Katch way

The acquisition of the illustrious Address Hotels + Resorts portfolio was a crowning achievement, symbolising our continued foray into the realm of luxury hospitality. From iconic properties like Address Downtown to the elegant Palace Downtown and Address Grand Creek Harbour, each collaboration underscored our efforts to elevate brands and foster their distinct identities.

Katch has also taken the reigns of Vida Hotels & Resorts, becoming the PR partner for the likes of Vida Creek Beach and Vida Creek Harbour, two of the most breathtaking properties located in the stunning Dubai Creek Harbour. Renowned names such as Alta Real Estate, Giorgio Armani Caffe, Ashna Mehta Jewelry, LIWA Village Festival (through the Department of Culture and Tourism, Abu Dhabi), Brag - Dubai Comedy Festival, Republic Adda Bar & Lounge in Double Tree by Hilton - Business Bay, Berkeley Group, Ideal Standard, UNTOLD Dubai, Grand Millennium Dubai, and many more prestigious brands and events have also become integral parts of Katch International's success story in 2023.

Setting New Paradigms in PR and Beyond

Sustained Growth and Intuitive Market Understanding

Our current portfolio is absolutely bursting at the seams, and we are now working with the most clients in our history from the most diverse range of fields. With an intricate understanding of the Middle East market dynamics, our expansion into Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Bahrain mirrored our commitment to regional excellence and market penetration. As we look ahead to the future, we have ambitious plans to expand our reach even further, conquering new markets with the same ingenuity and creativity that we have become known for.

We have recently taken charge of two properties in the paradisiacal land of The Maldives, showcasing our ability to transcend borders when delivering an impactful message. These properties, namely Centara Ras Fushi Resort & Spa and Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa, are the pinnacle of hospitality excellence and an escape like no other.

Fostering Innovation and Nurturing Talent

At the heart of Katch International lies a diverse and passionate team, a melting pot of talent speaking ten languages and fostering a culture that champions innovation. Our commitment to nurturing talent has resulted in remarkable growth trajectories for our employees, with pathways for progression and entrepreneurship within the company. We have had the privilege of working with some of the most exceptional individuals throughout our history and it is truly a delight to watch them grow.

Katch team on boat

Each member of our team adds an immense amount to our success and their distinct personalities keep our office abuzz with conversation, collaboration, and laughter. Outside of our professional achievements, we always find the time to have some fun, and this year the team enjoyed a myriad of engaging activities and team-building opportunities. From battling it out at TEP Factor and Topgolf to cruising the high seas on Katch’s annual boat party and celebrating our differences at our own unique award ceremony, “The Georgies”, we always find the time to show our team members how important they are, and it gives us a chance to blow off some steam.

Pioneering Change and Spearheading Unforgettable Campaigns

Beyond traditional PR boundaries, Katch International's endeavours encompass pioneering events that redefine excellence. The monumental success of the Grand Reveal Weekend of Atlantis The Royal stands as a testament to our capabilities in orchestrating and managing global-scale events. The meticulous planning, on-the-ground execution, and seamless media management highlighted our team's dexterity and proficiency in curating unforgettable experiences.

Katch has also recently partnered with Blurred, a UK-based firm that blurs the lines between sustainability, management, and communications consultancy, which already operates across the UK, Europe, and the United States. Blurred is known for its unique ability to help clients create lasting impact for their business, their customers, and the world at large. Their services include world-class communications, consultancy, and creative solutions.

Katch X Blurred

Through the Katch & Blurred partnership, Katch will offer clients a range of services designed to address critical environmental issues. We will help clients evaluate their strategies, policies, and actions to create greater impact. Once that impact is delivered, we will then reshape the client narrative, and communicate a company story that breaks through to customers, employees, and other stakeholders. Katch and Blurred have come together to help clients take action on climate and biodiversity risks - and then communicate their positive impact to the world.

A Glimpse Ahead

As we bid farewell to a momentous year, we at Katch International are ready for the next adventure that lies over the horizon. We are looking forward to embracing whatever comes our way and working with the same levels of dedication that we have for the past 13 years. We are so proud of the culture we have created within the agency, one steeped in creativity and teamwork, which will allow us to continue scripting success stories in the years ahead.

In traversing the path that unfolds in 2024, we extend an invitation to celebrate our accomplishments, partnerships, and the collaborative spirit that defines the essence of Katch International. We thank each and every person who has been a part of this remarkable journey so far and we are so excited for the incredible adventures still to come.
