Entertainment for Saudi Seasons
One of the ways that the Kingdom is trying to really boost the entertainment sector is through its seasons initiative. In 2019 Saudi Arabia launched 11 seasons with the aim of transforming the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia into one of the most important tourist destinations in the world!
These seasons focussed around cultural heritage sites as well as key cities. Combining insight into the country with a heavy focus on entertaining. Entertainment was most prevalent in both the Jeddah and Riyadh season.
With these events running for months at a time, Saudi Arabia used its global connections within the entertainment and events industry to bring in some of the most talented suppliers and entertainers.
The intention with these seasons is that they run yearly, continually increasing Saudi Arabia’s position in the entertainment industry. Not to mention, creating large revenue streams for the country taking the pressure off the oil industry.
What entertainment types does Saudi Arabia love?
Having worked on lots of different events in the Kingdom there is definitely a consistent theme to the kinds of entertainment event planners in Saudi look for.
There is a high demand in Saudi Arabia for bespoke shows and productions. Especially globally renowned shows such as Cirque du Soleil. Our Saudi clients look for shows that create an impact.
