I want to get the title of a conference to appear as shown in the figure which (for IEEEtran class) might be done using \markboth{\textbf{\textit{2020 IEEE PES/IAS PowerAfrica}}}{}. However, when passing the option conference, the headers entirely disappear

enter image description here

One requirement for the solution is to remove page numbering.

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}

\usepackage{blindtext}

\usepackage{adjustbox}

\usepackage{fontspec}
\setmainfont{TeX Gyre Termes}

\begin{document}
    
    % ===== The Paper Title =====
    \title{Statistical Analysis of Wind Power Using Weibull Distribution to Maximize Energy Yield}
    
    % ===== Author names =====
    \author{\IEEEauthorblockN{Al-Motasem I. Aldaoudeyeh}
        \IEEEauthorblockA{

            \\
            \textit{Electrical Power and Mechatronics Engineering Department}
            \\
            Tafila, Jordan
            \\
            [email protected]
            }
        \and
        \IEEEauthorblockN{Khaled Alzaareer}

            }
        }

In conference mode, some of the commands are intentionally disabled and \markboth{}{} is one of those. So, using \IEEEoverridecommandlockouts should have worked for it but unfortunately, it doesn't (I don't know the reason).

Now, I have found a solution here. As I have seen people advise to add the full solution along with the link, I am also adding the solution here.

In the preamble, you can add the following code snippet to show the conference name.

\usepackage[mathlines,switch]{lineno}

\makeatletter

\let\old@ps@IEEEtitlepagestyle\ps@IEEEtitlepagestyle
\def\confheader#1{%
    % for the first page
    \def\ps@IEEEtitlepagestyle{%
        \old@ps@IEEEtitlepagestyle%
        \def\@oddhead{\strut\hfill#1\hfill\strut}%
        \def\@evenhead{\strut\hfill#1\hfill\strut}%
    }%
    \ps@headings%
}
\makeatother

\confheader{%
        \parbox{20cm}{\textbf{\textit{2020 IEEE PES/IAS PowerAfrica}}}
}

Here is an MWE based on the question:

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}

\usepackage{blindtext}

\usepackage{adjustbox}

\usepackage{fontspec}
\setmainfont{TeX Gyre Termes}

\usepackage[mathlines,switch]{lineno}

\let\old@ps@IEEEtitlepagestyle\ps@IEEEtitlepagestyle
\def\confheader#1{%

    \def\ps@IEEEtitlepagestyle{%
        \old@ps@IEEEtitlepagestyle%
        \def\@oddhead{\strut\hfill#1\hfill\strut}%
        \def\@evenhead{\strut\hfill#1\hfill\strut}%
    }%
    \ps@headings%
}
\makeatother

\confheader{%
    \parbox{20cm}{\textbf{\textit{2020 IEEE PES/IAS PowerAfrica}}}
