The representatives included several university rectors, deans, and cultural attachés. King Khalid University Rector, His Excellency Prof. Falleh Al-Solamy, represented King Khalid University at the conference.
King Khalid University had its own pavilion set up at the conference.

The staff had both print and digital media available to the public. The volunteers were available throughout the day to answer questions from guests.
