MARKET OVERVIEW


Saudi Arabia is witnessing growth in the cinema market while many other countries around the globe are facing a slowdown off the back of the pandemic. With 2021’s most anticipated movies performing better in KSA compared to other gulf countries, the Saudi cinema goer’s appetite cannot be catered to by the existing cinemas, creating a continuous demand for new cinemas to be built. 

The Saudi cinema industry with enormous potential is growing rapidly and steadily as it is led by great leadership and industry stalwarts. With a great amount of groundwork done in the past 3 years, the cinema industry in the Kingdom is on its path to becoming the leader in the region and has already gained attention from cinema stakeholders from across the globe. Saudi Arabia's cinema market is expected to reach USD 1.2 Billion by 2030.


EVENT OVERVIEW

Following the grand success of the second and first annual Cinema Build KSA Forums, held under the auspices of the Quality of Life Program and General Commission For Audiovisual Media respectively, the fourth annual continues to be the only annual program to gather the Kingdom’s cinema construction stakeholders together to discuss the development strategies, roadmap, and construction of world-class cinemas. While Saudi Arabia's cinema market continues to grow, this conference aims at finding out the refinements that are needed to fast-track the construction and overcome the slump faced by the industry in the last year.

Cinema Build KSA provides enormous networking and business opportunities to international brands and serves as a one-stop-shop for the local cinemas. Being the largest gathering of cinema stakeholders in Saudi, Cinema Build KSA 2022 will serve as a learning center for building world-class cinemas.
