The Abu Dhabi Media summit 2014 closed its doors on Thursday after three days of discussion between industry leaders and innovators.

In the closing remarks, Noura Al Kaabi, CEO of twofour54 praised the diversity of the guests and called for a fully connected world, according to an official statement.

She also said that “the Abu Dhabi Media Summit is a clear example of how we are all helping to build a positive profile of the Arab World.”

“The future is bright and within the grasp of young people in the Middle East and everywhere,” al Kaabi said, according to the statement.

Hundreds of key regional and international media players flew to the UAE capital to attend the fifth edition of the summit.

They discussed the biggest challenges facing the industry in the MENA region and beyond and brainstorm ways to sustain the future of the media.

The focus of the summit was the “content, distribution, and financing of the media,” said Khaldoon al-Mubarak, chairman of the summit.

Abu Dhabi has hosted the summit annually since March 2010, as part of its ambition to become a hub for regional and global media.
