The number of licenses issued by the Saudi Conventions and Exhibitions General Authority rose by 367 percent during the first half of 2022 compared to the same period last year, resulting in more than 4,000 exhibitions and conferences held in Saudi Arabia.

Underscoring the importance of building strategic partnerships, Amjad Shaker, acting CEO of the SCEGA, said that the authority is “constantly working” to spur the sector into attracting exhibitions and conferences, “which will contribute to enhancing Saudi Arabia’s competitiveness in the business tourism industry, in addition to creating many job opportunities in several fields to support the national economy.”
