(MENAFN) The hanging stadiums below the Saudi Arabia’s USD500 billion giga-venture NEOM are going to drive tourists’ influxes as well as visualize the future, as the nation progressively follows its goals to become a worldwide tourism center by the end of this decade, as stated by its chief executive Nadhmi Al-Nasr.
While giving a speech at the World Travel and Tourism Council Global Conference in the capital of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh, on the 30th of November, Al-Nasr pointed out that everything in NEOM is going to be linked to tourism business models.
“In The Line, we want people to come and see how sports stadiums are built, and where they are built. The sports stadiums in NEOM are 300 meter high, loose and hanging in the air,” according to Al-Nasr.
He continued: “We did not build sports stadiums in NEOM loose just for the sake of having it loose. We believe in the best use of space.”
Throughout his speech, Al-Nasr stated that OXAGON, the industrial town in NEOM also has all the possibility to turn into a world-class tourist location, where travelers can come and understand how the upcoming days are going to be.
He also stated that “It is in OXAGON where all industries will be, and it is the port of NEOM. Yet, we would like to see tourists spending a day or two in OXAGON. They will see the future of industries in OXAGON. Everything in NEOM is built for the future era. We want them to come and see how future sea ports will operate.”
