In 2001, the Arab Media Forum (AMF) was launched as a flagship project of Dubai Press Club to foster dialogue among Arab media professionals on subjects of topical relevance to the region.
The annual event has successfully attracted outstanding media experts from across the region and the world. The AMF platform has played a vital role in opening channels of communication between Arab media professionals and their global peers.
Since its launch, the AMF has steadily evolved in scope and reach. Through keeping pace with rapid developments in the media, the event has consistently progressed from its local and regional focus to encompass a broader international outlook inviting the interest and participation of Arab professionals abroad as well as foreign journalists, political and economic decision makers and intellectuals. The platform of the Arab Media Forum has also opened the way for academics and researchers to engage in an annual conversation with experts from leading media organizations.
