Saudi Tourism

Edelman has picked up a $1.2M nine-month contract to promote Saudi Arabia’s sustainable tourism global center initiative.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman announced the STGC platform in 2021 during the UN’s climate change conference in Glasgow as a roadmap to drive the tourism sector’s transition to net-zero carbon emissions.

Ahmed Al-Khateeb, who heads Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Tourism, has called on world leaders to promote “sustainable and resilient tourism” to ensure the future of the travel sector and the natural environment.

Edelman’s work for the Ministry of Tourism began May 11. It covers narrative development, senior communications counsel, media training, content development, and issues management.
