Accenture will support TRSDC in governing and managing the Smart Destination Programme in the areas of Enterprise Architecture Design and Technology to integrate partners and systems in bringing the platform online, while ensuring quality and timely delivery of the complex visitor-driven program planned to be launched by the end of 2022.
“To bring the smart destination to life, Accenture brings a host of capabilities in enterprise architecture, digital services, luxury tourism, and mega-venue visitor experience,” said Khaled Al-Dhaher, Accenture’s country managing director in Saudi Arabia. “This strategic partnership will also help bring advanced capabilities, innovation, and technologically equipped manpower to the Kingdom’s new-age and digitally savvy tourism industry.”
TRSP is one of the world’s most ambitious regenerative projects, covering 28,000 km2 on Saudi’s west coast, and offering a new type of barefoot luxury experience for visitors from around the world.
