Third Party Event

18 Feb 2018 - 20 Feb 2018

The convention represents a developed version of the Saudi Convention and Exhibition Forum, an initiative of the Saudi Exhibition and Convention Bureau that took place from 2013 up until last year. 

SMIC aims to strengthen communication channels, develop capacities, transfer knowledge and bring the benefit of international experience in the sustainable development field to help drive forward the Saudi meetings industry. It also sets out to highlight the importance of the industry, its multiple programmes, and role in realizing the Kingdom’s 2030 vision. Other aims include reaffirming the pivotal part earmarked for the meetings industry in increasing the Kingdom’s economic base and investment levels.

The convention will include five key sessions, Saudi Associations Day, Future Leaders Day, 15 educational sessions and an international trade exhibition, at which players and suppliers in the meetings industry will have the opportunity to showcase their products and services.  

As an ideal platform for developing the meetings industry in Saudi Arabia, SMIC’s target audience is: exhibition and conference organisers; exhibition and conference facilities personnel; public and private sector public relations departments; commercial centres; hotel managers; heads of scientific, professional and medical associations in Saudi Arabia; media professionals; and investors. 
SMIC falls under the supervision and strategic partnership of the Saudi Exhibition and Convention Bureau. OBG is a partner for the event, which is organized by The Specialist – ExiCon International Group.
