The brainchild of disruptive Saudi innovators, Midwam was established in 2012 and already counts tier-one government entities, including the General Culture Authority, the Saudi Art Council and MiSK Innovation, large enterprises, such as Saudi Airlines, and leading lifestyle and entertainment brands, including MDLBEAST, among its prestigious clients.
Midwam offers its clients and partners three core types of experiences. Permanent experiences turn permanent spaces, such as engagement centers or museums, into interactive experiences that blend the physical with the virtual to take visitors on an out-of-this-world journey.
Pop-up experiences combine creative flair, storytelling, and production expertise to virtually transport visitors to leading-edge events, such as festivals, shows, and exhibitions. Meanwhile, virtual experiences immerse audiences on virtual platforms in a hyper-realistic, fully interactive environment.
Midwam has worked on some of Saudi Arabia’s biggest transformational events, such as MDLBEAST, a record-breaking music festival that took place in Riyadh in December 2019, drawing the participation of 400,000 attendees.
Other high-profile projects include Into the Kingdom, an immersive global roadshow experience that started at the Saudi Cultural Week in Moscow, and followed His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on his tour of the UK, US, and France offering audiences the opportunity to remotely experience Saudi culture and heritage.
