The Advisory Board will help set The Red Sea Project’s agenda to develop and implement a new international standard in environmental protection and restoration, sustainable development, innovation and luxury tourism. Located along the west coast of Saudi Arabia at the crossroads of the Middle East, Europe, Asia, and Africa, the project is envisioned as an ultra-luxury tourism destination for nature, adventure, wellness, and culture. It is part of Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia’s ambitious blueprint for the future.

“Utilizing this group of advisors to guide The Red Sea Development Company is crucial to creating a world-class project of this scale,” said John Pagano, Chief Executive Officer of TRSDC. “The collective expertise of this impressive group will help us to exceed the inspirational goals set for the tourism sector in Vision 2030.”
