Report on creative industries mission to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is gearing up to deliver Vision 2030 and is investing significant sums in developing new world class destinations and cultural attractions.

Ambitious developments for future living like Qiddiya ‘Entertainment City’ near Riyadh, the Red Sea Island development, Al-Ula near Madinah and Jeddah Downtown are huge in scale and a positive indication of the KSA’s aspirations.

Momentum is building on selected projects and design expertise, fit out, furniture and furnishings for hotels, hospitality, offices, leisure facilities, airports, education, healthcare will generate huge opportunities for UK companies who are equipped to deal with this market.

BCFA attended a 5-day Creative Industries Scoping Mission to Jeddah, Riyadh and Al-Khobar, which provided access to key government agencies, developers and industry players.  Read the report on this mission available here.

NEXT STEPS – EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST:   BCFA will be holding a Market Opportunity Seminar in early September to brief interested companies, with a view to working closely with DIT and the local KSA posts to take a selected group on a further mission in late March / early April 2020 to meet the main players in the most current projects in Jeddah and Riyadh.

Please email me – sue@thebcfa.com  - with an expression of interest if you would like to be kept in the loop on the Seminar and the Mission.
