During Ramadan, the IAA Kuwait Chapter and Philip Morris Services Inc., hosted a dinner at the Meridien Hotel. A large turnout from local advertising agencies, media and some advertisers made the evening a huge success.
Elian Farah, Vice President IAA Kuwait Chapter, welcomed the guests, and Maroun Zabbal, the Chapter President, said in his remarks that he hoped 1999 would be a year full of continued cooperation in the local advertising field, benefiting all involved. Philip Morris Services sponsored the evening as part of its corporate policy aimed at supporting cultural, educational, charitable, professional and social activities. Philip Morris, tobacco manufacturer and owner of the Kraft brand, has been commercially active in the Gulf region for more than three decades.
