Strategic Significance


Saudi Arabia & the disability facts:

Disability is a complex, influential, dynamic, multidimensional challenge, and it can substantially limit major life activities of human beings and their ability to integrate/reintegrate into society. According to the World Health Organization reports almost 15% of the world's population lives with certain types of disability, of whom 2-4% experience substantial difficulties in functioning. In Saudi Arabia, very limited research has been conducted on the prevalence and incidence of disability, and most of this is on disabled children.

Saudi Arabia is one of the countries that declares the highest budgets for Medical and Educational verticals. The current budget in the health care vertical is 105 billion. The rich citizens explore the outer world to meet their medical needs, sometimes spending a fortune for a smallest requirement. This leaves “OPPORTUNITIES” for the foreign Companies, Manufacturers, Traders & Investors to explore and capitalize on the market to meet the needs of the untapped market and cater to hospitals, Clinics, Rehab centers & the general public who have no reach to the outer world. DIAA aims to proliferate and reach out every nook and corner of the globe inviting companies to represent their solutions for the ‘SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS” eventually making DIAA the biggest exhibition in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as well as in other GCC countries.

Based on all the previous facts, and taken them as the mainstay of the objectives set for the Saudi International Exhibition for People with Special Requirements (DIAA), on the territory of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in addition to the special studies conducted on the number of persons with disabilities in the Kingdom, which indicates that the number will be the equivalent to 720,000 disabled and that the services provided to them do not exceed 3%, a conclusion took place in the decision to work on organizing this Exhibition to make a distinctive and quantum leap to mark a milestone in the field of specialized exhibitions, which bear in mind providing integrated solutions of the highest and strictest international quality standards.

Who are the people with disabilities?

The National Law issued by the Royal Decree No. (M / 37) dated 09/23/1421 for the care of persons with disabilities, had identified a person with a disability as any person with total or partial failure in a stable manner in their physical, sensory, mental, communicative, educational or psychological abilities to the extent that it reduces the possibility of meeting the normal requirements of the conditions of the class of non-disabled, and identified the disability as injury of one or more of the following disabilities: visual impairment, hearing impairments, mental retardation, physical and kinetic disability, learning difficulties, speech and utterance disorders, behavioral and emotional disorders, double and multiple disabilities, autism and other disabilities that require special care.
