By E247

The Dubai Press Club (DPC), organiser of the Arab Media Forum (AMF), today announced that the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), is the Strategic Partner of the 21st edition of the event. Organised under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the Forum will be held from 26-27 September at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai.

AMF 2023 is set to bring together political figures, writers, thought leaders and opinion-makers, renowned media personalities, and senior executives of leading Arab and international media organisations.

His Excellency Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, said: “We are pleased to continue our support for the Arab Media Forum, aligning with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to strengthen the media's role in regional development and industry excellence. DEWA recognises the significance of our partnerships with local and international media in promoting our global standing and Dubai's sustainability initiatives. As a pioneer in sustainability and renewable energy, DEWA's achievements, including world-leading clean energy project prices, support Dubai's Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050. In the UAE's Year of Sustainability, we back the nation's preparations to host COP 28 at Expo City Dubai, aligning with UN Sustainable Development Goals. We eagerly anticipate the 21st Arab Media Forum as a platform for collaboration in sustainable media content, vital for advancing comprehensive sustainable development. The media is our crucial partner in community service, sustainable development, and promoting a green economy. We trust that the Forum will continue to spotlight the UAE's efforts in creating a sustainable future for all and conveying our development experience worldwide.”

Her Excellency Mona Al Marri, Vice Chairperson and Managing Director of the Dubai Media Council and President of DPC, said that as the Strategic Partner for this year's AMF, DEWA continues to make significant contributions to the success of the event.

“Every year, the Arab Media Forum strives to offer key insights into the sweeping global transformations and formulate media strategies to address developmental needs in the industry. As a Strategic Partner this year, DEWA continues to underscore the media's role in serving society, aligning with its commitment to promoting sustainable practices and pioneering transformative renewable energy initiatives. This establishes DEWA as a vital stakeholder in the media's endeavour to accelerate positive change, both locally and regionally. The significance of this partnership is also further amplified as the UAE hosts the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28), which seeks to reinforce global cooperation in tackling environmental challenges,” she said.

This year’s Arab Media Forum will explore opportunities and address challenges across the media industry spectrum. The largest gathering of Arab media stakeholders is set take a deep look at new trends, Artificial Intelligence in media, and global developments that are shaping the future of the industry in the region.

Launched over 20 years ago, the Arab Media Forum is one of the major events in the Dubai Press Club’s annual calendar of events. AMF has emerged as the most comprehensive platform for knowledge sharing in the Arab media community. The annual event has steadily evolved in scope and reach to encompass a broad international outlook.
