These events will reflect the positivity of the MENA Leisure Industry despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, despite this, the MENA countries are going ahead with developing some of the most iconic mega mixed-use master-planned projects that are going to change the face of the leisure tourism industry in the region.
Investment in mega mixed-use tourism projects to the tune of $810 billion (AED2.97 trillion) will change Saudi Arabia’s tourism landscape between 2020 and 2030, according to reports. Among these, the $500 billion (AED1.8 billion) Neom leads the list of the mega projects – which once completed, will deliver a futuristic mega sustainable city, followed by the $10 billion Qiddiyah project, spread across 334 million sqm in Riyadh.

The conference provides a wonderful opportunity for all industry stakeholders to benefit from listening to the keynote speeches and panel discussions that will examine the current economic situation and focus on the business opportunities for our members,” says Silvio Liedtke, vice president of MENALAC.
