In its second edition, LEAP 2023 was launched today at the Riyadh Exhibition and Convention Center under the title “Towards New Horizons” and continues until February 9, 2023.

The robot, “Sara”, was manufactured in cooperation between Saudi Digital and Qss Company, and it can communicate with all visitors, interact with them, perform all popular dances, and respond to visitors’ inquiries.
