Pushing Digital Forward in Dammam!

Saudi is an exciting place right now for the tech industry. With Saudi Vision 2030 vision, there are a lot of exciting developments which we’re honored to be a part of! For years, many have participated in our Digital Marketing Track in the UAE and KSA, which aims to help you become a digital marketing expert and learn best practices on how to make your marketing strategy actionable.

Last week, we launched our first Digital Marketing Track in Dammam, part of our #ForwardKSA program, which aims to catalyze entrepreneurship in KSA and enable women, youth and entrepreneurs with the digital skills they need to improve and grow their businesses.

 

The program was hosted at Badir Dammam, one of the Badir incubators that promotes and supports technology innovation and entrepreneurship throughout Saudi Arabia through its comprehensive national programs and strategic policy initiatives.

The program was joined by a total of 48 attendees from the local community, including impressive local startups such as Madad, Hayah Organics, Arrajol Shop, Baseetah, Mistca,Qetaacom,Tweetso, and Cloud Apps, and local companies such as Alrugaib Furniture, Dhahran Expo, Nukhbat Almarabih, Digital Wave, and Mishkat, as well as local universities such as KFUPM and Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University.

In addition to our AstroLabs instructor, Ahmad Abugosh, who lead the whole week’s program, we were joined by a guest instructor from Zain KSA, Muneeb Arrabi, who specializes in Digital Advertising, e-Commerce, integrated media, and all forms of new media advertisements (Snapchat, Instagram, Youtube, and Google Ads).

Not only did the attendees learn advanced digital marketing techniques, they also managed to get certified in Google Analytics, Google AdWords and Comprehensive Online Marketing!

Our twitter feed was overloaded with messages and tags, here’s what a few of them shared:
