Bin Fahad: Arab Movement Reveals Flaws in Reportage
Organized by Dubai Press Club from 8 - 9 May
Dubai-UAE: 21 March, 2012 - Dubai Press Club (DPC), organisers of the Arab Media Forum (AMF), today announced the 11th edition of the event will be themed "Arab Media: Exposure and Transition."
Arab Media Forum 2012 (AMF 2012) is scheduled to be held from 8-9 May at the Grand Hyatt in Dubai, drawing the participation of over 2,000 regional and international journalists, as well as influential decision makers, opinion leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators. It will feature eight sessions and four workshops that will highlight the perspectives of more than 65 speakers from various academic, media and research disciplines.
The event will primarily monitor developments in the Arab and global media landscape, examining the emergence of new media outlets and platforms that have significantly impacted traditional formats. The forum will additionally review the predicament of certain news organizations that have faced challenges in offering an impartial coverage of events. Panel discussions will also analyse the new influencers of public opinion, and the shift in media content and language used.
The agenda for the 11th Arab Media Forum is drawn from the outcomes of the Arab Media Outlook, a report that charts developments in the media landscape across 17 Arab countries and is set to be launched in end-April.
In 2011, the tenth edition of the Arab Media Forum themed 'Arab media and the storms of change' witnessed the participation of more than 2,800 delegates from 40 nations. Additionally more than 23,000 people watched the forum's activities through live online streaming.
