02 May - 03 May Riyadh & Jeddah

Shaping the future airport industry of Saudi Arabia

Business Sweden, in collaboration with the Embassy of Sweden in Riyadh, invites you to participate in a business and expert delegation to Saudi Arabia to meet with the major players from the airport industry. The delegation, headed by the Swedish Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Mr. Dag Juhlin-Dannfelt, will visit Riyadh and Jeddah.

The visit will focus on promoting Swedish solutions, products and services, in the airport industry in Saudi Arabia. The occasion will act as a door opener for Swedish companies interested in creating or enhancing their business within the airport sector in Saudi Arabia. Discussions with high-level officials and major stakeholders in the airport sector will provide a platform for identifying the areas where Swedish solutions can make a difference in the industry. Some of the areas include among others air traffic management, airport operations, ICT, training, security and facilities management.


Saudi Arabia has a broad master-plan to upgrade 37 airports in the country by 2020 for total investment value of over 10 bn USD. The goal of the planned and existing airport development projects is to reach global standards in among others technology, performance, safety and efficiency in order to become a major aviation gateway in the region. The long-term development goal is to almost double airport passenger capacity from actual 80 million passengers. Some of the significant projects include the new airport in Jeddah as well as new terminals to be built in Riyadh and Dammam. Public Private Partnerships and Built-Operate-Transfer models have recently been used in some of the airport projects that have encouraged international companies to enter and invest in the market.


The purpose of the visit is to position Swedish products and services for planned and existing airport development projects in Saudi Arabia. Swedish companies can provide solutions to streamline airport operations where high quality innovative solutions can be presented as the future of the Saudi airport industry. The participation in the delegation will create opportunities for you to meet both high-level representatives and professionals from the Saudi Arabian airport industry. The programme and the planned workshops will be developed in close collaboration with participating companies and their local partners.

Please confirm your participation as soon as possible but no later than 2 April 2016, by confirming interest to: susan.wacklin@business-sweden.se

We are looking forward to seeing you in Saudi Arabia!
