Hollywood Walk of Fame Heads to the Middle East

Milestones will adapt the entertainment industry monument to celebrate the best in Arab cinema. 

MIDDLE EAST–The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and the Beirut-based company Milestones have entered into an agreement to bring the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame to the Middle East.

Global Icons, the Walk of Fame’s licensing agency, brokered the deal.

The agreement will see the famous public monument replicated “with some tweaks” and re-branded as The Arabian Walk of Fame. In addition, the new installment will use a different symbol and will be “elevated off of the ground per Middle Eastern tradition.”

The monument will also give performers and prominent figures in the Middle East the opportunity to be recognized under one governing body. 

The Walk of Fame has been licensed to Canada, where it has been re-branded as Canada’s Walk of Fame, and to Hong Kong, where it is known as The Avenue of Stars. Milestones has not decided on a location for The Arabian Walk of Fame.
