Press release:
Dubizzle the UAE’s largest free classifieds and community website, is now available across the Middle East and North Africa. In its recent expansion, totaling 14 countries, Dubizzle recognized the need of being available in over 20 cities to provide users with a portal to buy, sell, or find anything quickly and easily.

The site contains an extensive classifieds section, property for rent/sale, job opportunities, a wide range of automotive listings and a variety of other useful and interactive pages. Dubizzle is free for the end-user and employs rigorous processes to help protect users from fraud.

Launched in August 2005, Dubizzle became the UAE’s leading online classifieds and community portal. Today there are over 1 million unique visitors and more than 45 million page views on a monthly basis and increasing. With continued user-based improvements, the site is easy to navigate with simple steps to list or search for ads. Dubizzle is also available in Arabic, English and French giving each listing three times more viewing opportunity across communities in the Middle East and North Africa.

“We’re very proud of the way Dubizzle has grown in the last few years and there are lot of new opportunities in the region which we are excited to engage in,” explained Sim Whatley, co-Founder of Dubizzle.

An idea that sparked out of necessity, Dubizzle was created by entrepreneurs J.C Butler and Sim Whatley. They ventured to the UAE looking for great jobs, instead they decided to create something on their own, and made Dubizzle a household name. With the expansion of Dubizzle in size and geography, the team which started out with two, has grown to 40 and continues to grow in 2011.

J.C. Butler, co-Founder of Dubizzle.com said, “One of the key components to Dubizzle’s success is its people. We pride ourselves on the brilliant and eclectic team that we have assembled and the impassioned new members we continue to attract.”
