Dubai: The Museum of the Future hosted a dinner for Arab Media Forum (AMF) 2022 participants as part of the celebrations of the landmark 20th anniversary of the largest media event in the region that took place on October 4 and 5 at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai.
The dinner event was attended by Mohammad bin Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs and Chairman of the Museum of the Future.
Mona Ghanem Al Marri, president of the Dubai Press Club and AMF chairperson of the Organising Committee of the Arab Media Forum, noted the theme of AMF this year, ‘The Future of Media’, was inspired by the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to create a prosperous future.
Al Marri said the Museum of the Future represents Dubai’s aspirations to be a centre for industries of the future and a pioneer in adopting groundbreaking innovations and technologies.
Arab Media Forum participants expressed their deep appreciation for the hospitality they received in Dubai and commended Dubai Press Club on the exceptional organisation of the Forum. They said the Forum provided a platform for sharing knowledge and ideas that can contribute to the growth of the region’s media and engage in dialogue that can help catalyse the sector’s development.
The Arab Media Forum has emerged as the most comprehensive platform for knowledge exchange in the Arab media community. The annual platform has steadily evolved in scope and reach over the last two decades to encompass a broad international outlook. The 20th edition of the event brought together more than 3,000 prominent media leaders, scholars, writers, experts and senior executives of leading media companies who addressed challenges facing sectors across the industry spectrum, including print, visual and digital media.
