It will source out the speeches of the speakers and Press releases on each session.

The team at the Media Centre will also coordinate Press briefings with the media personalities for the journalists.

Mai Mohammed Sulaiman, Media Centre Coordinator, said: "This is an event which evokes a lot of interest from media and to ensure that the stories make it to the news faster we decided to set up a fully-equipped Media Centre. A dedicated team of professionals will be at hand to provide support to the journalists covering the Arab Media Summit.

"The recently instituted Photography Group has been involved to capture the event photographically. The team from the Group would be covering the Summit as well as the many social gatherings and events that would be taking place over the two days."

Qasim Al Hammady, the Coordinator of the Photography Group, said: "It's a welcome opportunity and a challenge to cover a event that brings together such prominent personalities. We will provide a resource centre of digital photographs of the event for all journalists, local as well as international."
