Saudi Future Airports Summit

14 & 15 March 2018, Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Event Overview

Saudi Arabia is gearing up to race and standardize all the airports of the country by 2020. With the dropping oil prices in the region the stakeholders are diverting their focus to generate maximum revenue by diverting their revenue generation portfolios. One such portfolio is the aviation sector which has been much spoken about and the civil aviation regulating authority (GACA) is taking all possible steps to upgrade the existing airports to make it more comfortable and enjoyable for travelers.

The country is trying to raise $200 billion over the next several years from the aviation sector. Civil aviation of Saudi Arabia will contribute more than SR25 billion (approximately $6.7 billion) annually to the national economy by 2020. As they continue to thrive building more efficient airports there are several challenges which is hindering the progress of the aviation sector and the regulators are actively looking to overcome these pressing issues.

As a part of the privatization drive in Saudi Arabia the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) is privatizing 11 airports by 2020 along with other state owned organization. In this direct move to attract foreign investors it has been stated that there is no obligation to have a local Saudi partner. The most important aspect of this drive is that the regulatory authorities has announced that the foreign investors will have the maximum share. It is also announced that all qualifying international companies and operators can be a part of the privatization process.

Nispana is excited to launch the Future Airports Summit to be held in Saudi Arabia. With the growing demand in the aviation sector, the summit will bring key stakeholders of the region to educate and discuss the best practices of the industry towards creating efficient airports in Saudi Arabia. Join us, as we bring together attendees at this high level summit with the stellar line up of speakers and panelists over two days to inspire you on the region’s trending topics.
