Hence, participants are motivated to unleash their creative potentials, lead their sectors and become the core of the creative economy in their communities.

Co-founder of the Creative Industry Summit (C-S), Mai Salama, stated: "Continuing our success with C-S 2021 has brought us great enthusiasm, as we come back bigger and stronger than ever to promote creativity as one of the main elements of excellence in all fields and arenas. We take great pride in extending cooperation with our strategic partners, including FP7 McCann Cairo, our first real believer, and HeartWork, the leading administrative headquarter in Egypt and MENA regions at Mountain View City."
As a regional and global hub for creativity and creative economy, C-S aligns with the state's diligence to launch cultural, investment, and economic events, maximizing Egypt's attraction as a popular tourist destination.
She added: "This edition is of particular importance to us. It is the first step towards realizing our most important dream of expanding collaboration with Arab countries, building on the solid base we have established in Egypt over the past years. Hand in hand with our partners in the advertising committee at the Chamber of Commerce in Riyadh, we take the upcoming edition of the Creative Industry Summit to Saudi Arabia next February. Augmenting our home grown brand to other countries in the region, we aim to inspire and encourage all people with innovative ideas to pioneer their fields and support development in the whole Arab world."
