Saudi Arabia’s Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) has won a prestigious global accolade for its stunning ‘Jewel of the Kingdom’ event held in partnership with events company Executive Visions Inc (EVI).

The “Jewel of the Kingdom” event was the first building block in the project to develop the Diriyah region. Further, this historic event also made Diriyah the major destination in the new tourism scene of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

According to the statement, “The event was held in 2019 in partnership with Executive Visions (EVI), where the competition consisted of a group of major events and activities produced by leading international brands, and the DGDA won the prestigious exceptional event award within the leading “Heavent” Awards in the industry.”

The Heavent Awards is a globally recognized ceremony celebrating achievements by leading international experiential and event agencies from around the world.

Mr. Jerry Inzerillo Group CEO of DGDA commented that, “To lead a project like Diriyah is both a wonderful privilege and a huge responsibility. We had to create an event that was befitting of such a historic moment and did justice to the high ambition of King Salman and HRH Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, whose wisdom and foresight guide us every day.”

On The Heavent Awards honor, Mr. Inzerillo said that, “Witnessing our vision being brought to life creatively by EVI and then seeing it being delivered through hours of work by everyone involved – from construction, design, and logistics to communications and guest services – was immensely rewarding for me personally.”
