The first Arab Media Forum was organized in 2001 by the Dubai Press Club under the patronage of Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The organizers say that the main objective of the event is “to open channels of dialogue between the Arab and Western media in order to promote a better understanding amongst the different schools of thought worldwide.”
The event brings together editors of many Arabic and international newspapers, broadcast media, analysts, commentators and government officials.
The forum concludes with the Arab Journalism Awards, which is also organized by the Dubai Press Club.
