13th Arab Media Forum kicks off

(Dubai) – The 13th edition of the Arab Media (AMF) Forum focusing on new trends and their impact on the future of today’s media begins at Mina A’Salam Resort, Madinat Jumeirah, in Dubai. The two-day forum with the theme “The Future of Media Starts Today”, is being held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The 13th annual gathering of roughly 2,000 media personalities from the Arab world and the international arena, witnessed a keynote address by Egyptian Prime Minister Ebrahim Mahlab. Sheikh Mohammad said in a statement, “Since the era of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan and the late Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, we owe Egypt and its people all honour, respect, and appreciation.”
With the rapid development taking place in the media industry around the world, AMF organisers have included important topics such as how Information and Communications Technology (ICT), new media, and extinction of traditional media such as newspapers affect and alter the media landscape today.
Renowned researcher and futurist Ross Dawson will open the first session with ‘The Future of Arab Media’ where he will analyse a timeline of newspapers ceasing publication due to stiff competition with other media platforms.
Hosted by the Dubai Press Club, AMF will also feature the 13th Arab Journalism Award to recognise and encourage journalistic excellence in Arabic media.
