Frequently Asked Questions

As the United Arab Emirates’ favourite daily newsbrand 7DAYS attracts a lot of interest and we enjoy that. It is important that certain facts are clear and hopefully we provide some useful detail here.

Who owns 7DAYS?
7DAYS is wholly owned by the Daily Mail & General Trust plc (DMGT). The group purchased 7DAYS in 2006. DMGT is a UK FTSE listed international media group with global operations and investments in media, energy, property, insurance and education. The group also owns the world’s most-visited news website, ‘mailonline’, as well as Metro UK, the highly successful daily free commuter newspaper.
Why is the newspaper called 7DAYS?
Originally, 7DAYS was a weekly newspaper (hence the title). Since 2004 it has published five days a week (Sunday to Thursday). The brand ‘7DAYS’ now represents much more than the newspaper alone and our media portfolio offers 24/7 news, sport and lifestyle content across the UAE. This quality content is available digitally via your desktop, tablet or smartphone as well as through all the major social media platforms.
Is your content regulated?
We regulate our own content. 7DAYS is a responsible and integral citizen of the UAE and clearly understands the country’s publishing laws. Everything we do is decent, honest and truthful and aims to promote unity, cultural integration, respect for fellow citizens and their religion and to support the UAE leadership’s vision and strategy in creating a sustainable world-class economy.
How do you make money as a business?
As with every other media company, our main revenue source is advertising. This is achieved through print and online advertising and leaflet distribution. 7DAYS is not exposed to the decline in sales of newspapers as we distribute the newspaper free to our readers, both in printed form and digitally. This also ensures consistency in reaching the ideal target audience for our advertising customers and guarantees a consistent reach. 7DAYS operates its own distribution company for the newspaper and copies are independently audited twice each year by the BPA Worldwide. This is a quality assurance for our commercial partners.


Safety on the roads of the UAE is of paramount importance to Al-Futtaim Honda and we have a responsibility to help spread the right messages throughout the community. The #Roadsmart initiative with 7DAYS allowed us to reach a broad online audience, and crucially, has started a social debate about issues which affect us on the roads every day.

We are very satisfied with the results from our latest campaign for the Al Badia Golf Club by Intercontinental Dubai Festival City – ‘More than just golf.’

The campaign we ran with 7DAYS has been very successful in reaching the intended clientele, with a remarkable response from the ads. 7DAYS as an advertising medium offers good value for money and with a high level of public interest content, advertisers are exposed to a captive audience. The executive management team always offers their complete support that goes over and above simply booking ad space. When we book our campaigns with you, it is a genuine partnership.

I worked with 7DAYS on Casio End-User Transformation Strategy that was challenging to map the required action to turn a normal newspaper reader into an active social media user that initiate a conversation with Casio. 7DAYS demonstrated an extensive ability to understand our core strategy concepts and came up with the right steps of implementation! The amount of creativity 7DAYS team got is immeasurable! We hit an outstanding customer impressions and engagement on social media. People got really creative and the amount of participation we got is tremendous.

In 2015, for the second consecutive year, we joined forces with 7Days to launch the UAE’s Cutest Baby Competition – and like the previous one, this edition proved to be a real success. The KraftHeinz Company in partnership with 7Days gave mothers in the country the unique opportunity to nominate their child to be crowned the UAE’s Cutest Baby. The contest was promoted via various media – both online and offline – and, as a result, an overwhelming number of submissions were received. We, at The KraftHeinz Company, look forward to collaborating with 7Days in 2016 to bring to life the third edition of the UAE’s Cutest Baby Competition.

We were delighted with the results from the 7 DAYS / Spinneys Easy Eats campaign.

The simplicity of the message and the valuable video content resonated very well with our customers and provided us with content we can use on our own site.
