RIYADH — Paul Jackson, CEO of World Luxury Expo, said visitors to the fifth World Luxury Expo slated on May 3-5, 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton, Riyadh will see a wide range of best experiences that happens once in a life time, during a press conference that was held at Four Seasons Riyadh last April 18.
“The visitors of the upcoming event will be able to see a two-man personal submarine which allows passengers to explore underwater at their leisure – the ultimate superyacht accessory. They can also see one of the safest, smartest and eco-friendly driverless flying cars available on the market today,” he said.
“Over the past five years, we sought to promote economic activities within the border of Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has been playing one of the most powerfully leading role in terms of economy. We are here not only to talk about the upcoming event but also to celebrate the success of the World Luxury Expo under the headline sponsorship of American Express Saudi Arabia,” he said.
“It is going to be full of unique surprises and we are very optimistic about it. The Expo will be held on May 3-5. American Express World Luxury Expo has been always committed to satisfy people with high taste, with excellently luxurious goods and we will continue providing our visitors with one of the most unforgettable experiences ever,” said Ahmed Aloraij, CEO of Luxurious events.
He added that the organizers did not forget to include a wide range of very high quality national crafts. “Around 60 local and international exhibitors ranging from different classy products and categories. In terms of expectations about visitors, we expect more than 3,000 visitors everyday throughout the 3-day exhibition. We already reached that number the previous years and we expect more this year,” he added.
“One of our objectives is to lift up the current level of expos that take place in the Kingdom. Surely, in line with Kingdom›s vision 2030. That besides our main objective which is bringing together the highly prized luxury products and goods,” he said.
He stressed that there will be no entry fees, “we have a special target and we treat them specially,” he noted.
“This Expo ranks as one of the very top Expos in the Kingdom. It is also greatly accredited by Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage,” he added.
