Glitz at The Ritz: The 5th World Luxury Expo

The glorious murals of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Riyadh is the perfect backdrop for the upcoming World Luxury Expo sponsored by American Express Saudi Arabia. It will be the fifth year for this opulent event with each one trying to surpass the ones that came before. A press conference for the media was held last week at the Spazio 77 Restaurant where the organizers and sponsors campaigned for the event.

This year, apart from the numerous range of handmade and limited edition luxury products that will be on display, exciting experiences are expected to create much buzz from visiting guests. Just imagine a two-man personal submarine is being brought to The Ritz-Carlton, wherein it allows passengers to explore underwater wonders at their leisure. It is the ultimate superyacht accessory (not to be used in Riyadh though, I’d assume). There will also be a “flying car” on display — the smartest autonomous aerial vehicle which is considered to be the future of luxury personal transport. And finally, visitors will have the chance to test drive the latest Aston Martin sports car within the vicinity of The Ritz!

The event will be inaugurated on May 3, with HRH Prince Turki bin Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud as the guest of honor of the ceremonies. Ahmad Al Oraij, CEO of the event organizer, Luxurious Events, said:

“We are honored to have HRH Prince Turki bin Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud as our patron. The World Luxury Expo is a prime opportunity for highly affluent visitors to experience one of the most exclusive exhibitions in the Gulf and beyond. It will undoubtedly be a huge success largely due to our close relationship with American Express and their clients, all of whom want to see something unique in the world of luxury.

Assim Al Shmassi of American Express said:

“At the World Luxury Expo in Riyadh we will be offering access to products that are the epitome of excellence in terms of design and craftsmanship. They will be available for those individuals who want to be a cut above the rest.”

The World Luxury Expo is set for May 3 to 5 at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Riyadh. Pre-register for your invitation on their website:
