The event was attended by international actors Shahrukh Khan (SRK), Jason Mamoa, Jackie Chan and Jean-Claude Van Damme along with the Japanese chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa who is popular for his chain of restaurants, also in GCC region.

“This is an absolute game-changer for Saudi families and young people,”
“For many years, entertainment and culture events in the Kingdom were limited and many Saudis travelled abroad for these experiences – however, thanks to Vision 2030 and the work of the General Entertainment Authority (GEA) – that is no longer necessary.”Arabian Business
