Dubai Media City (DMC), part of Dubai Holding, is a tax-free zone within Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It’s located next to the Dubai Marina neighborhood, next to Dubai Knowledge Village, Dubai Internet City, and the private American University in Dubai, as part of the new to be built Dubai International Academic City.

The Dubai Media City was established in 2000. It was built by the Dubai government to boost UAE’s media foothold, and has become a regional hub for media organizations including news agencies, publishing, online media, advertising, production, and broadcast facilities. The groundwork for infrastructure (such as fiber optic cables) was already laid for firms to set up easily and its visa and operational procedures are relaxed for firms operating within Dubai Media City.
