Over 750 participants will attend the event that launches a year-long campaign designed to exhibit British expertise and contributions pivotal to advancing Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030. Of those, over 300 UK business delegates will participate to seek areas of mutual economic benefit and partnership in the development of diverse sectors focusing on business, tourism, and culture, showcasing the best of UK excellence and innovation in those sectors. The initiative further solidifies the deep-rooted and expanding partnership between the UK and Saudi Arabia, based on a strong history of diplomatic, economic, and commercial cooperation.
Diriyah Group CEO Jerry Inzerillo will join other leaders of Saudi Arabia’s giga projects at the event and will present Diriyah’s strategy, achievements, and future plans to encourage new UK partnerships for the multi-faceted business opportunities that the development has to offer. Existing relationships with UK partners include London-based architects HKS, who have designed the 20,000-seat Diriyah Arena; Foster & Partners; Zaha Hadid Architects; and several other leading UK architects and design firms.
“We are excited to participate in this high-profile event and engage with some of the UK’s finest organizations as we look to build new and rewarding partnerships with the enormous range of talent, innovation, and economic experience offered by the UK,” Inzerillo said of the Great Futures Forum.
“We have already partnered across multiple projects with UK firms and are delighted to have the opportunity to potentially expand our partnership portfolio with more inspiring sector and industry leaders from the UK,” the Diriyah Group chief said.
“We are proud to have entered an exciting new partnership with the prestigious London Business School that will help to further enhance the skills set of our highly talented team and enable us to collaborate on highly focused and relevant business research together in the future,” Inzerillo said.
“The size, scale, and ambition of Diriyah provides an amazingly diverse spectrum of opportunities as we develop The City of Earth as a worldwide destination, a center for arts and culture, for business, and a place to live, work, and play for upwards of 100,000 people,” the Diriyah CEO said.
