Former Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett took his expertise to Saudi Arabia in late January to consult alongside many of the top urban planners in the world.
Cornett, who works with Jones PR in Oklahoma City, was part of the Municipal Investments Forum in Riyadh. His panel discussed what’s happening in urban economic development today and in the future. Approximately 1,000 international investors attended the event.
“Saudi Arabia is investing in futuristic place-making and is drawing the attention of everyone in this space,” Cornett said. It’s Cornett’s seventh time to speak in the Middle East and second time in Riyadh.
