Laura Wojciechowski, Partner and Media Director at tpg media, RED’s media partner, commented: “A bold new vision is unfolding in Saudi Arabia. The phenomenal transformation that is taking place in the world’s fastest growing economy is clearly visible across the entire urban landscape. Thank you to the organizers of RED Saudi Arabia, GBB Venture, for running such a remarkable event. I thought the entire two days were very professionally structured, ran like clockwork, and were buzzing with pioneering companies and people to talk to. The feedback from attendees has been fantastic, too, and it’s been great making new connections and catching up with old friends.”
