10 YEARS OF AN EVENT ESTABLISHED IN THE AGENDA OF MAJOR INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCES

2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the MEDays, key event on the agenda of major African and international conferences.

The MEDays International Forum, created in 2008 and hosted by the city of Tangier, is the main event organized by the Amadeus Institute. The forum has, along the years, become one of the main international geo-strategic events in Africa and in the Arab World.

Today, the Forum is one of the most important geo-political and economic events organized in Morocco by a non-governmental actor.

Under the High Patronage of His Majesty the King Mohammed VI, the MEDays Forum consists of about 30 sessions and panels that take place for 4 days, in November of each year. It gathers a community of 150 high-level speakers representing all of the five continents: heads of states, heads of governments, political decision-makers, Nobel Prizes, representatives of international organizations, CEOs, experts and forefront international figures.

The Forum’s official opening ceremony is the opportunity to award the MEDays prize, granted each year to figures, institutions, organizations, or firms which brought a determining contribution to the development of Southern countries, or have had a real added value in the improvement of North-South or South-South relations.

Each year’s closing ceremony is marked by the reading of the “Tangier Declaration”, which states the main recommendations proposed during the debates.
