A new media forum and awards ceremony will be held in Saudi Arabia for the first time by the end of November this year.
The Saudi Journalists Association (SJA) announced that the forum will be staged in light of the Kingdom’s efforts of becoming a sector hub for the Arab world, and in conjunction with the inaugural Saudi Media Awards.
“Media Industry: Opportunities and Challenges” is the title of the two-day conference which will give the opportunity for well-known Saudi, foreign and Arab media figures to speak about the latest challenges that face the industry and the opportunities to overcome them.
The forum will be an annual conference aiming at positioning the Kingdom as the region’s media capital, said Khalid bin Hamed Al-Malik, Chairman of the SJA.
“The media’s role is essential and influential,” Al-Malik said. “This forum will open the way for further discussions, put forward views about the media industry in general and create dialogue with others to better understand global and regional practices.”
Both the forum and awards will be supported directly by the Minister of Media, Turki Al-Shabanah, who already held several meeting with board members of the SJA to help promote for the initiative.
