The programme is correct at time of publishing. However, given the seniority of our speakers and the nature of their roles, speakers may subsequently substitute or remove themselves from the programme. This  always regrettable, and we will always try to replace speaker with a speaker with equivalent insight.

The Middle East Leisure and Entertainment Awards will recognise the achievements and innovations shown by visionary developers, architects and designers who are pushing the boundaries of theme park and entertainment development in the region. The awards are the perfect opportunity for you to gain recognition in front of leaders in the leisure and entertainment development industry for your contributions, achievements and innovations. It will also provide an ideal setting to benchmark against the best-in-industry projects in the region. The awards ceremony will take place during the second day of the forum from 1pm.
