The Forum aims to increase communication and discover the latest sector trends.

The Forum is held annually on April for 4 days. The eleventh round will be held from 15 to 18 Rajab 1439 AH, AD 1 – 4 April 2018, in Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Center.

In line with the economic and social developments in Saudi Arabia and the region, and in view of the demographic nature of the Saudi society specifically, Qatar Tourism Authority has chosen its third conference to be entitled “Youth Conference – Investment Opportunities and Work in Tourism”.
The forum, which will take place on April 1, 2018, will be held under the slogan “Tourism Industry Market”, which shows that the tourism industry includes more than one industry, which is the main engine of many other industries shared by the public and private sectors.
