Bringing world-class events to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
What we do
Vision & mission
A bold vision
To bring world-class events to Saudi Arabia and help contribute to the Kingdom becoming a global events hub.
Tahaluf is rewriting the events playbook. Its purpose is transformative, its DNA digital, and its ambition unprecedented – capturing the pioneering spirit of Vision 2030. Tahaluf will bring together vibrant communities from global industries through extraordinary in-person events and digital platforms.
Tahaluf is a strategic joint venture between Informa PLC, the Saudi Federation for Cyber Security, Programming and Drones (SAFCSP) and the Events Investment Fund (EIF).
A passionate mission
To create exhilarating experiences through live and digital platforms that connect and inspire communities.
Setting new benchmarks for the international events industry, Tahaluf will help accelerate economic diversification, provide market access to international business, and attract investment to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The growth of this dynamic industry will provide strategic, fun and creative opportunities for the Kingdom’s digital population.
Informa Markets creates platforms for industries and specialist markets to trade, innovate and grow. We provide marketplace participants around the globe with opportunities to engage, experience and do business through face-to-face exhibitions, targeted digital services and actionable data solutions.
We connect buyers and sellers across more than a dozen global verticals, including Pharmaceuticals, Food, Medical Technology and Infrastructure. As the world's leading market-making company, we bring a diverse range of specialist markets to life, unlocking opportunities and helping them to thrive 365 days a year.
The Saudi Federation for Cyber Security and Programming (SAFCSP) aims to empower the local workforce and enhance its capabilities across Cybersecurity, Software Development, Drones and Advanced Technologies, to rapidly raise Saudi Arabia’s stature in technology innovation to that of developed countries.
Following award-winning launches of technology and cybersecurity events in Saudi Arabia in alliance with Informa, the two entities have recognised the massive opportunity to bring their creativity, skills and excellence to other key industries through Tahaluf.
From technology, real estate and food, to pop culture, intermobility, beauty and beyond, Tahaluf will introduce a vibrant, varied portfolio of events, trade shows and conferences to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Attracting global brands and diverse audiences, these events will deliver impact and scale that typically takes years or even decades of evolution and growth in their first edition.
"Technology and innovation have enormous potential to transform economies and societies. We live in a time where you either leap or be left behind. We are proud to host LEAP to help the region lead and leapfrog with technology and innovation"
"Black Hat MEA was a historic first and matched well with the Saudi and MEA region’s rapid modernization and embrace of technology. The diverse turnout was huge. This cyber movement is only growing at speed"
"The event was a success and definitely got my full vote in the quality of organisation, diversity and eminence of speakers, breadth and depth of content, as well as the grand scale. Saudi Arabia sure looks determined to leave a mark with its investments into technology including FinTech and we are honoured to become partners in their journey"
