Tabuk Gov. Prince Fahd bin Sultan, who is also the chairman of the Tourist Development Council in the region, will be honored as the Personality of the Year at the upcoming Saudi Cultural Heritage Forum in the region.
Prince Sultan bin Salman, president of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities (SCTA) will honor Prince Fahd on Monday, the opening day of the event, for his contribution to the country’s heritage sector.
The forum will feature a workshop and exhibition about the project of the custodian of the two holy mosques to protect the country’s heritage sites. It will also feature photographs of various projects in Tabuk, according to the SCTA website.
The forum’s second day on Tuesday will feature several workshops, lectures and cultural events to mark World Heritage Day. The Kingdom celebrates World Heritage Day annually, which is organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization on April 18 each year.
The SCTA organized the first forum in 2013 in Riyadh in collaboration with Dar Al-Uloom University and the Saudi Society of Urban Science, while the second forum was held last year in collaboration with Hail University.
