RIYADH: The 5th edition of the Future Investment Initiative (FII), Saudi Arabia’s flagship financial forum, will take place from Oct. 25th to 28th, Richard Attias, CEO of organizing body the FII Institute, confirmed.
“Yes, FII fifth edition will happen, in Inshallah, in October, it will be a full week 25,26,27,28 of October so save the date,” Attias said in a press conference in Riyadh ahead of the event, which starts today.
“We hope that the global health situation in the world will allow us to go back to thousands of delegates and friends who will come in person in Riyadh,” he added.
While the January 2021 event took place as a hybrid between live speakers in Riyadh and those attending virtually from hubs in New York, Paris, Beijing, and Mumbai, Attias stressed the importance of people gathering in person for the October conference, if conditions allow.
This year the fourth edition of FII is taking place in January after being postponed due to the pandemic. Adhering to strict health measures, hundreds of attendees and tens of speakers are physically attending the conference while hundreds of others are joining virtually.
The FII, which has become a fixture in the global investment calendar in the short time since its launch in 2017, has evolved from just an annual gathering to become a hub for building relationships.
In 2017, the participants were mainly from the Americas, Europe, and the Middle East. Today they come from Japan, China, India, and Russia and are all united in a spirit of collaboration.
The FII in its third session in 2019 brought together more than 250 ministers, CEOs, and industry experts to address issues ranging from sustainable development to the challenges in building an inclusive workplace.
