Arab Media Forum

IEDEA partnered with the Dubai Press Club as Advisor to the Arab Media Forum 2016. Created under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashed Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister, and ruler of Dubai, the Arab Media Forum is a well- established forum for journalists and media professionals to debate, discuss and deliberate upon issues that are relevant to daily life.

Dubai Press Club has endeavoured to play a vital role in the growth of the regional media industry through the launch of unique initiatives such as the Arab Media Forum and the Arab Journalism Award.

IEDEA is committed to supporting the GDMO and the regional media industry in establishing Dubai as a pivotal centre for creative, dynamic and integrity-led journalism.
