With plans for Forbes Middle East Women’s Summit 2023 well underway, Saudi Arabia’s Diriyah Company is getting ready to offer delegates a remarkable experience as the summit’s official hosting partner.


The three-day summit—chaired by H.H. Princess Noura Bint Faisal Al Saud—will feature a series of expert programming and a host of networking opportunities with women across all sectors in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, from May 21-23, 2023. Aside from the informative and enlightening discussions that will empower and support women in business, the event will also offer a variety of stunning experiences designed to showcase and embrace Saudi culture. Diriyah will host a guided tour at the At-Turaif UNESCO World Heritage Site and a prestigious dinner at the Bujairi Terrace.


“As the official hosting partner of the Forbes Middle East Women's Summit 2023, we at the Diriyah Company are excited to showcase our world-class cultural heritage destination to delegates from across all sectors in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia,” says Jerry Inzerillo, Group CEO of the Diriyah Company. “The Summit offers us the opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to supporting women and to highlight the rich cultural heritage of the Kingdom. We are delighted to host the guided tour at the At-Turaif UNESCO World Heritage Site and enjoy a prestigious dinner, as we strive to offer delegates an unforgettable experience.”


Diriyah, The City of Earth – the capital of the First Saudi State and the birthplace of the modern Kingdom of Saudi Arabia – is unrivaled in how it represents the Kingdom’s rich cultural heritage and its vision for the future. The Diriyah Company was established with a mandate to preserve and rejuvenate Diriyah and develop the $63.2 billion Diriyah project, a 14-square-kilometer area adjacent to the capital city of Riyadh, housing hotels, residences, offices, universities, traditional and modern retail options, and a host of cultural venues, all while staying true to the traditional mud-brick Najdi architectural style.


“Choosing the right partner with the right alignment in values to help bring to life our vision for the Women’s Summit 2023 was a key priority for us,” says Khuloud Al Omian, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Middle East. “We are very much looking forward to hosting the sunset reception in Diriyah and delivering a memorable world-class event at a world-class cultural heritage destination, showcasing the history and heritage of one of Saudi Arabia’s most important giga-projects.”
