Abu Dhabi: The Dubai Press Club, in collaboration with Emirates Post, announced the issuance of a set of commemorative stamps featuring the "Dubai, Capital of Arab Media 2020" logo.
The stamps highlight the emirate’s status as a vibrant regional and global media hub that is home to more than 4,000 companies from across industry sectors.
The commemorative stamps, which feature the official logo and various Dubai landmarks, highlight the emirate’s role in shaping the development of the UAE and Arab media sector over the last two decades.
Dubai was selected as the "Capital of Arab Media for 2020" by the Council of Arab Information Ministers at its 50th session held in Cairo in July 2019 in recognition of its leadership role in Arab media growth.
At the forefront of this growth is the TECOM Group’s media clusters, Dubai Media City (DMC), Dubai Studio City (DSC) and Dubai Production City (DPC). Established in 2001, DMC is home to 2,000 media companies and 33,000 industry professionals from across the region and the world.
Dubai Press Club has launched several initiatives to foster industry, including the Arab Media Forum, the region’s largest media gathering; the Arab Journalism Award; the Emirati Media Forum, and the Arab Social Media Influencers Club.
DPC unveiled the logo for Dubai’s title as the "Capital of Arab Media for 2020" during its 20th-anniversary celebrations.
