Jason Mamoa, Jackie Chan, Shah Rukh Khan and Nobu chef attend Saudi entertainment forum

International actors Jason Mamoa, Jackie Chan, Shah Rukh Khan and Jean-Claude Van Damme and Japanese chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa were among the attendees at an entertainment and cultural industry event in Riyadh this week.

The Joy Entertainment Industry Forum was a two-day event organized by the Saudi Arabian General Entertainment Authority (GEA) and brought together leading global entertainment personalities and executives interested in investment and growth opportunities in the kingdom’s entertainment sector.

The forum highlighted Saudi Arabia’s developing entertainment sector, one that is expected to generate 200,000 jobs and attract local and global investment exceeding $69 billion by 2030.

“This is an absolute game changer for Saudi families and young people,” said GEA’s CEO Amr bin Ahmad Banaja.

“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.”

Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan, American Aquaman Hollywood actor Jason Mamao, Chinese superstar Jackie Chan and Belgian martial arts action star Jean-Claude Van Damme took part in several panel discussions at the forum and were presented with awards at the end of the event by GEA chairman Turki al Sheikh.

Japanese chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa, famous for his chain of restaurants, including several in the GCC, was among the attendees and award winners.
