“Thanks to the vision of the wise leadership and in line with its directives, the launch of the second edition of the Global Media Congress testifies to the UAE’s well-established position as a vibrant hub for the media industry and future forecasting, a status achieved through international media collaborations and efforts to enhance the roles of media in its various forms in bolstering the international drive to achieve global stability and prosperity. It also cements the UAE’s leading position as a preferred destination for creatives, innovators, and talents in the media industry globally. GMC 2023 coincides with the UAE’s hosting of the 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28) later this year in Expo City Dubai.”

The three-day event will see the participation of a roster of the world’s top industry leaders, specialists, and influencers, in addition to academics, youth, and university students.

The Congress will discuss several key themes, focusing on issues related to environmental conservation, climate, innovation, artificial intelligence, and utilizing sports in media to promote positive values.

Further, the Congress will highlight the role of media in spreading positive values and enriching various sustainability concepts related to environmental and climate issues.

“We look forward to collaborating with WAM and all our partners in the government and private sectors to launch the second edition of the Congress. Through the upcoming Congress, we will continue building on our achievements and ensure that this event reflects the reputation and status of the UAE, in line with our wise leadership’s vision. I am confident that the current edition of the Congress will be a new success story within the exhibitions and conferences industry, solidifying Abu Dhabi’s position as the capital of business tourism in the region,” commented Mr. Humaid Matar Al Dhaheri, Managing Director and Group CEO of ADNEC Group.
