Tap into a US 1 trillion-dollar pipeline of infrastructure projects

Saudi Arabia has announced a trillion-dollar pipeline of infrastructure projects aimed at diversifying the economy beyond oil. The Kingdom aims to position itself as a global hub for investment and logistics in line with its Vision 2030. The development agenda has created opportunities in a range of new areas such as smart cities, tourism, and clean energy with giga projects strategically located across the Kingdom.

The Economic Cities Authority, on the other hand, has been set up to rekindle investor interest in older economic cities projects in the Kingdom which aim to address specific social challenges like the shortage of affordable housing and efficient transportation among others.

This transformation offers a wide range of opportunities and Saudi Infrastructure Expo brings together government bodies, procurement professionals, owners, architects, consultants, and developers involved in the multiple infrastructure and giga projects to meet local and international suppliers so they can source products that they need to change the outlook of the country.
