Designing world-class entertainment destinations in the Middle East and adopting technology to amplify experience

The 2018 edition of Theme Parks and Entertainment Development Forum from 7-9 May 2018 in Dubai, UAE, will feature a unique spotlight on the recent development in Saudi Arabia’s entertainment and hospitality industry, as well as plans in the UAE leading up to Expo 2020 and other major developments in the region.

There is high interest from governments across Saudi, UAE and Oman to boost tourism - theme parks, entertainment, resorts are considered a central means to fulfill the leisure, hospitality and tourism vision that governments in the Middle East region are investing in to create post-oil revenue.

With the ever-growing cluster of theme parks in the region it is now more important than ever before for new and existing entertainment destinations to develop meaningful business strategies to attract both international and local guests.
