23 Aug Black Hat Middle East & Africa to take place in Riyadh this November
Black Hat Middle East & Africa (MEA), the cyber industry’s fastest-growing event, will take place in the Riyadh Exhibition & Convention Centre, as it looks to record huge growth in floor space, exhibitors, national and industry pavilions, and speakers.
Running from November 14-16, this year’s event will take place under the tagline ‘Infosec on the Edge’. Organised by Tahaluf, an Informa Business in partnership with the Saudi Federation for Cybersecurity, Programming and Drones (SAFCSP), Black Hat MEA will be 41 per cent bigger than its 2022 launch edition and has already seen a 119 per cent uplift in early-day visitor registrations.
“With 70 per cent of our 2022 exhibitors having rebooked, we are well on course to beat last year’s launch event outputs,” said Michael Champion, Chief Executive Officer of Tahaluf “[Last year’s event] included more than 30,000 attendees, 182 exhibitors, and more than 250 speakers. This year we are forecasting more than 300 exhibitors from 120 countries, making it the region’s largest cybersecurity event, and the most attended in the world…”
“Prominent CISOs [Chief Information Security Officers], C-level executives, IT directors, and government officials have registered to explore new business opportunities, innovative learning and networking that will set the blueprints for successful preparation against existing and new threats in the new digital era of AI.”
