But while we know that gaming is growing exponentially, the key aspect is about how we work together to make it even better. It is imperative that we propel a gaming and esports sector that offers rich opportunities for industry and governments while meeting and exceeding new expectations from gamers around business models. In pursuing that quest, Saudi Arabia, which has an aim to become not just one of the global leaders in esports and gaming, but the global leader, is a fitting host for the Next World Forum. We look forward immensely to welcoming the esports and gaming world to Riyadh on September 7th and 8th, as we convene for productive, purposeful, progressive, and prosperous discussions.”
