Awakening Publications launched its latest book The Art of Integration by renowned photographer Peter Sanders. This full colour hardback title includes a foreword by HRH Prince Charles. The launch took place at the Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS) in association with MOSAIC.

The launch also saw the opening of The Art of Integration exhibition and included a panel discussion chaired by BBC's Mishal Hussain. The Lord Chancellor and Justice Secretary Rt. Hon. Jack Straw MP was the keynote speaker and highlighted the contribution of British Muslims to British society.

On the 5th October 2009, Awakening Records' new star artist Maher Zain performed at the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) Eid reception. In attendance were Foreign Secretary Rt. Hon. David Miliband MP, Home Secretary Rt. Hon. Alan Johnson MP, members of the British government, Muslim ambassadors and community leaders. The event was organised to mark the festive occasion of Eid al-Fitr.

The prestigious Gulf based Platinum Magazine features an exclusive interview with Awakening chairman Mr Sultan Alturki in which he discusses his strategic vision for the company.

Platinum is one of the leading magazines covering lifestyle, business, fashion, media and culture in the Middle East.

Awakening Worldwide has appointed Euro RSCG Apex Communications as its public relations and communication consultants.

Euro RSCG Apex Communications will be working with Awakening Publications to launch and promote its latest book 'The Art of Integration' by photographer Peter Sanders.

Their impressive client list includes high profile brands such as EMI, Cadbury Trebor and Channel 4. They have previously worked with AE2 in promoting its historic peace concert at Wembley Arena.

Awakening Records artist Mesut Kurtis launched his latest album 'Beloved' at the Jeddah branch of Virgin Megastore, Saudi Arabia. The launch was attended by Mesut's Saudi fans and attracted significant media attention.

"It was a truly fascinating experience. This is the first time such an event has taken place in Saudi Arabia and hopefully not the last..." commented Mesut.

Mesut's new album can be purchased from AwakeningStore.

AE2 artists Maher Zainand Mesut Kurtis performed in Sweden and Algeria at two national events in October 2009. Both artists performed in Stockholm and Gothenburg.

AE2 also arranged two concerts in Algiers and Wahran hosted by the Algerian Ministry of Culture (ONCI). In total 20,000 fans attended these concerts.

"AE2 is fast establishing itself as a market leader in providing Islamic artists for cultural events," said Director of AE2 Wassim Malak.
