Launched in 2001, the event has grown into the foremost platform for dialogue and knowledge exchange on developments shaping the growth of Arab media. Featuring high-powered panel discussions and themed workshops, the forum annually draws over 3,000 media industry professionals from the region and across the world. In the last two decades, the Forum has seen 70,000 attendees.
The 22nd Arab Media Forum, set to be held from 27 to 29 May 2024, will commence with the Youth Media Forum on Day 1, dedicated to empowering the next generation of media professionals and influencers in the region. Days 2 and 3 of the forum will feature a series of discussions focused on analysing the key political, economic, social, technological and cultural developments driving the media’s transformation, as well as the sector’s own role in the changes sweeping the region.
This year’s Arab Media Forum will continue to celebrate excellence in the region’s media. Day 2 of the event features the prestigious Arab Media Awards, honouring outstanding achievements in the regional media industry. The forum will also host the Arab Social Media Influencers Summit Award ceremony, on Day 3, recognising the contributions of digital influencers.
