Saudi Arabia to launch into MICE sector worldwide

April 28, 2017

Saudi Arabia to launch into MICE sector worldwide by exhibiting at IMEX in Frankfurt
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is to launch its first international campaign to market the country as a destination for meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions by exhibiting at IMEX in Frankfurt 2017 from 16 to 18 May.

Supported by a public relations campaign devised and implemented by London-based Clareville Communications, this marketing activity by the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage in association with the Saudi Exhibition and Convention Bureau will highlight the extensive range of more than 600 first class hotels, convention and exhibition facilities available in the leading cities across the country.
The marketing initiative is a practical step in line with Vision 2030, announced in April 2016, setting out economic and social policies designed to move the Kingdom’s economy away from its dependence on oil. Hosting business events is one of the focal points of the reforms, along with leisure and religious tourism, all means to generate both revenue and employment.
Under the National Transformation Plan, the centrepiece of Vision 2030, the Saudi Commission for Tourism & National Heritage (SCTH) is investing almost SAR 26 billion (US $7 billion) on initiatives around the country.
Established nearly four years ago, the Saudi Exhibition and Convention Bureau was created with a mandate to develop the meetings industry.
Tariq A. Al-Essa, Executive Director of the Saudi Exhibition and Convention Bureau explains: “As the worldwide exhibition for incentive travel, meetings and events, IMEX in Frankfurt is the perfect place for us to meet thousands of influential event and meetings buyers face-to-face and to show them the opportunities in Saudi Arabia and many superb facilities that we could offer them.”

DARWIN CONVENTION CENTRE GLOWS WITH GOLD

DARWIN CONVENTION CENTRE GLOWS WITH GOLD

DARWIN CONVENTION CENTRE GLOWS WITH GOLD
2012 started well for the team at the Darwin Convention Centre – it was awarded by the AIPC with Gold Certification, the highest possible achievement in its Quality Standards Program!

Darwin Convention Centre successfully completed a rigorous external audit, joining a select group of only 18 AIPC convention facilities to have successfully achieved this certification to date.

Darwin Convention Centre General Manager Malu Barrios says the certification is a reflection of her team’s passion and commitment to put Darwin on the global map of business events.

“I’m extremely proud of our team who are driven to achieve the best possible outcomes for our clients while almost oblivious that we are operating among the best in the world,” she said.
“The certification honours everyone’s efforts to continually look for new ways to deliver excellence in all aspects of our operations”, she added.

AIPC President Edgar Hirt congratulated the Darwin Convention Centre for its successful accomplishment of the AIPC Quality Standards Certification particularly at the top level of achievement and said, “It demonstrates to owners, colleagues and clients that the Centre is addressing international standards of performance in their management procedures.”

The Program is notable in that it is an industry-specific certification addressing the unique factors that distinguish convention centre operations. The audit involves strict assessment of ten key areas including customer service, quality of facilities and operations, employee relations, health, safety, security and emergency response, financial integrity, community relations, environmental responsibility, industry relations and supplier relations. It is process oriented with a strong emphasis on the client perspective.

The Darwin Convention Centre is a relatively young venue but has an enviable track record, establishing itself within the league of the world’s best venues within three years of operation. In the last 18 months, it has been recognised with five prestigious industry awards including the esteemed 2010 and 2011 Brolga Northern Territory Tourism Awards, and was a finalist at the 2011 AIPC Innovation Award.

Last year, the Centre also gained the ISO 9001 accreditation for quality management systems from Lloyds Register Quality Assurance Ltd.
