Saudi Arabia’s newest megaproject, THE LINE, created interest around the world when it was unveiled last month. Now, Saudis at home are being offered their first glimpse inside it at an exhibition in Jeddah. Makkah governor Prince Khalid Al Faisal said he planned to be the first to book accommodation in the megacity, in a clip of him touring the exhibition which has since gone viral.
The details of the NEOM project are on full display at the exhibition, hosted at the Jeddah Superdome. Visitors of all age groups will get first-hand insights with the help of the Saudi tour guides, who explain visual displays in both Arabic and English.
"I am mind-blown, is this real? Is this Saudi? Our future has never looked better!" said Hala Salih, 20, a Saudi visitor to the exhibition told The National on Thursday.
Apart from tour guides, NEOM officials are also present at the exhibition to assist those looking for in-depth answers.
The Jeddah exhibition opens its doors from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. until Aug. 14, before moving to the Eastern Province and then staying in Riyadh.
