The International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) will debut Expo! Expo! MENA from 10 to 12 September 2023 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Expo! Expo! MENA builds off IAEE’s annual meeting and exhibition — Expo! Expo! — that takes place in the US every December. This year’s Expo! Expo! 2022 will be held between 13 to 15 December in Louisville, Kentucky.

The Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition is set to host Expo! Expo! MENA 2023, which encompasses a trade show, education sessions, a general session and Certified in Exhibition Management (CEM) Learning Program classes.

“Producing an event in the Middle East North Africa region supports our strategic mission of bringing thought leadership and best practices to all members of the global exhibitions and events community,” said IAEE president and CEO David DuBois.

“This is an important region for the industry, and we look forward to hosting Expo! Expo! MENA next year, which will bring buyers and sellers together for a very meaningful event,” noted Bilal Al-Barmawi, CEM, CEO and Managing Director of 1st Arabia.
