Panel to improve media forum

An organising committee has been formed to further develop the Arab Media Forum (AMF). The Government of Dubai Media Office (GDMO) announced that this would consolidate its position as the largest and dedicated platform where media personalities and decision makers assemble under one roof periodically.

The Arab Media Forum Organising Committee will be chaired by the Director-General of the Government of Dubai Media Office (GDMO), Mona Al Marri. Director of Government Media Affairs Maryam bin Fahad will be vice-chairperson and representatives from the GDMO and Dubai Press Club (DPC) will join as members.

Al Marri said: “The unremitting support of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, paved the way for the AMF to assume a leading role and impose itself as a media platform of dialogue in the Arab world. Over the past 11 years, the AMF has gained momentum in assessing the media landscape, offering the required support for media experts and decision makers through recommendations and insights on the most prominent developments in the industry.”

Members of the Organising Committee include Muna Busamra, Saud Alderbi, Salem Bel Youha Abdulla Al Mansoori, Adel Omar, Sadiq Jarrar, Adel Ibrahim and Nadine Allahham.

The committee will be tasked with determining the strategic direction of the forum’s programme; developing media plans and identifying priorities; and applying best practices to keep up to date on the latest developments and expand AMF’s regional and global partners.

The forum will be held on May 14 and 15. Registration for the two-day event is open for those wishing to participate from inside or outside the country. Online registration can be submitted through the forum’s website,, no later than May 1.
