600 expected to take part in women investors’ exhibition in Riyadh

RIYADH: Six hundred exhibitors are expected to participate in a women investors’ exhibition that begins in the Saudi capital on Dec. 21 under the sponsorship of Riyadh Gov. Prince Faisal bin Bandar.
Huda Al-Jeraisy, head of the organizing committee, said that more than 1,000 women have expressed an interest in participating but the venue could accommodate only 600.
The Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry is the organizer of the event, which will be held for six days at the Riyadh International Exhibition and Convention Center. Al-Jeraisy added that the women’s committee has seen the various products or services of the exhibitors who should not be less than 18 years of age.
The exhibition includes items connected with national heritage, handicrafts, fashion and beauty, folk cuisine, design and printing, arts, entertainment, concert planning, decoration, perfumes and incense as well as marketing, technical and consulting services.
Al-Jeraisy said: “This kind of women’s investment, which is characterized by production from home, is encouraged and supported by government and private entities.”
She said the support the exhibition draws is based on the fact that a large number of Saudi women are able to produce creative and heritage products from their homes.
