The meticulous attention paid to both technical and creative aspects underscored NEOM's position as a hub for innovative ideas and visionary projects.

What was the experience?

Audiovisual Odyssey

As guests arrived, a striking screen installation spanning 300 sq mt of LED screens illuminated the entrance against the night sky. This installation was beautifully crafted with digital content, where rich and vibrant colors danced in perfect harmony. Guests were then greeted by an impressive red carpet flanked by 250 sq mt screen walls on either side. Walking through this corridor of innovation, they became immersed in an unfolding narrative. Each step they took resonated with the dynamism of the media, enveloping them in an aura of beauty and creativity.
