Ramzi R. Solh, CEO of Commercial Development at King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), is the latest addition to the line-up for the 2nd annual Vision Conference, Saudi Arabia.
The conference is a key feature of The Hotel Show Saudi Arabia in Jeddah, from 17-19th May 2016 featuring a range of industry experts exploring the Kingdom’s booming hospitality industry with topics ranging from mega-projects to technology trends.
Mr. Solh will discuss “Mega-projects – an inside view” with a behind-the-scenes look at the development of KAEC, the world’s largest privately funded city.
“We are very excited by the government’s support of the tourism sector as outlined in Vison 2030 and by the sector’s potential to generate both jobs and memorable family experiences,” said Mr. Solh. “KAEC’s tourism strategy is intended to position the city as Saudi Arabia's premier all-purpose must-visit tourism destination, creating growth opportunities across the nation’s wider hospitality, leisure and tourism industry.”
