About Innovation Arabia

Rapid changes are disrupting service and manufacturing industries. To survive and remain competitive, businesses must be able to adapt to continuous and accelerated innovations. This trend is not limited to large western companies; rather, it’s a worldwide trend. Whether small or large, industries should focus on innovations to manage their ways in this uncertain and volatile world.

The Arab countries need to embark on a real innovation journey and prepare the ground for the rise of the creative revolution, creative class, and creative society to transform their economies into full-fledged knowledge-based economies.

It also explores the enormous potential of the Arab countries to accelerate the pace of socio-economic growth and development. The conference also helps spread a culture of innovation throughout the world.
