International events and publishing company dmg has been granted a Saudi investment license and opened an office in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Initial priorities will include a focus on its core construction, hospitality and design brands. These include The Hotel Show and INDEX, with editions of Stone & Surface Saudi Arabia, FM Expo, Saudi Clean Expo, HVAC-R Expo already underway.

This expansion will mean dmg events is now operating in both Riyadh and Jeddah.

The combination of core events and potential future launches will enable dmg events to expand into sectors that are set to grow as Saudi Arabia fulfills its Vision 2030 plan.

"These ambitious plans clearly show why Saudi Arabia is an important market for our business," said Matt Denton, President of dmg events – Middle East, Asia & Africa.

"Establishing our own permanent presence in the country will enable us to build on the relationships we have worked hard to develop over the last six years of working with local partners. It also means we will be well placed to serve our customers better by being on the ground to understand market needs and nurture relationships."

Dmg events is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Daily Mail and General Trust plc.
