Yas Creative Hub campus

The future of media in Abu Dhabi is looking exceptionally exciting.

Yas Creative Hub is set to open its doors in the capital later this year, aiming to triple the number of media professionals at twofour54 to 16,000 by 2031.

Offering over 70,000 sq m of offices, studios and post-production space, specially tailored facilities such as an outdoor amphitheater, retail outlets and numerous F&B options, plus a fully walkable campus boasting flexible, tech-enabled, community workspaces, it looks set to propel the media landscape of the UAE capital to a whole new level of success.

Of course, twofour54 has long been the leading hotspot for creative media types in Abu Dhabi, but through its planned relocation to the new and exciting space on Yas Island, it will become stronger and more prosperous than ever before.

It also means that those looking to set up a business or become a freelance media professional will soon be able to obtain a trade license in Yas Island.
