Event Details

Opportunity Arabia – Oil and Beyond will be returning on Wednesday 30 October as the must attend occasion of the annual UK-Saudi Arabia bilateral calendar events this year.

Now in its 15th year, Opportunity Arabia - Oil and Beyond, brings together government and business leaders to help promote trade and raise awareness of business opportunities to the Kingdom through presentations and panel discussions. The conference offers insights into the progress of 'Vision 2030' with the aim of identifying current and future business trends.

Our speakers, Saudi and British, will be leaders and experts in the fields of business and government and will be offering their invaluable advice and market knowledge on how best to succeed in Saudi Arabia. 

The conference is relevant to those who are familiar and those who are less familiar with Saudi Arabia. It will aim primarily to raise the awareness of the huge and growing business prospects in the Kingdom and to introduce the options available to UK Plc. The Saudi market is not an easy one and establishing a presence takes time and determination. But the rewards are great. Pathfinder Trade and Invest, your conference parent, is there, through its extensive experience of Middle East markets, to give a helping hand and any follow-up required.

Topics and Panel Discussions include:

  • Mega Projects
  • Infrastructure
  • Transport and Transportation
  • Financial Services
  • Renewables
  • Education & Training
  • Economic Update
  • Vision 2030
  • Expert Advice on suceeding in the Kingdom (pitfalls, callenges and triumph)
  • Case Study
  • The Future of Oil beyond fuel
  • Tourism, Sport and Leisure
  • The role of women under Vision 2030

Conference Chairman: Sir Alan Munro – Former UK Ambassador to Saudi Arabia

Conference Moderator:   Vic Annells, Executive Director, Mansion House & Central Criminal Court at City of London Corporation and former Head of UKTI Saudi Arabia

Pathfinder Trade and Invest







Pathfinder Trade and Invest are passionate about helping UK businesses expand and export into overseas markets and specialise in offering customised global trade missions and events.


We differentiate ourselves from the market by offering a service-orientated trade mission based around our ‘PDP’ (pre, during and post) principles. We customise each trade mission by offering a ‘menu’ of services, allowing mission delegates to select which events to attend, thereby maximising their time and achieving their objectives.


Connecting businesses on a global basis, and all the more relevant because of Brexit, Pathfinder now has a full and developing programme of trade and investment missions worldwide.


To further develop business interests, Pathfinder organises high level conferences and roundtables in the City of London to discuss key topics on trade and investment, connecting all interested parties and allowing delegates to gain up to date information about the changing face of doing business overseas.
