In collaboration with the Saudi Space Commission, Huawei partnered to launch the Future Space, touted as the largest exhibition center outside of China, covering an area of 1,500 square meters in the kingdom.

The exhibition center, expected to attract 200,000 visitors in the next five years, will feature advanced technologies, including autonomous driving, 3D printing, and brainwave robot control. 

“Imagination will determine how far we can go in the future; action will determine how quickly we get there. We believe here at Huawei that the best way to predict the future is to create it,” Eric Yang, CEO, Huawei Saudi Arabia, said in a statement.

China’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia Weiqing Chen said that Saudi-Chinese relations have brought “immense benefits to both countries.”

Future Space aims to offer speaking opportunities to young innovators – a goal that is in line with the kingdom’s efforts to develop its local talent pool and deploy cutting-edge technology to support the nation’s digital transformation.

“Future Space is one of the world’s most advanced technology experience centers. We want to expose young people to the most cutting-edge technologies and inspire them to imagine technology in new ways,” said Dr. Mohammed Altamimi, CEO, Saudi Space Commission.
