, December 10, 2012
Bahrain's labour fund Tamkeen is organising a special expo in January to promote its various support programmes to the general public through entrepreneurs who are Tamkeen beneficiaries.
The expo, to be held at the Gulf Hotel on January 7 and 8, is envisioned to be a knowledge and expertise-sharing opportunity for entrepreneurs and the private sector, , said a report in the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
It will include a conference, workshops and an exhibition which is expected to be attended by more than 400 participants.
The workshops will be led by experts who will share international best practices across a range of areas of key interest to entrepreneurs and SME owners in Bahrain, such as creating marketing strategies, implementing quality management systems, using social media, maximising benefits from exhibitions, e-tendering, explaining key aspects to entrepreneurial success and shaping strategic plans.
The workshops will be held over the two days of the conference and will utilise an open interactive approach, with each session accommodating a maximum of 100 participants.
The Tamkeen Expo will bring together a wide-ranging group of entrepreneurs who benefited from Tamkeen's various support programmes to showcase their enterprises, products and services to the public.
In addition, the entrepreneurs will serve as living examples of the impact that Tamkeen's programmes had, and continue to have on their businesses, as well as encouraging other budding entrepreneurs to set up their own businesses.
The exhibition will include space for Tamkeen's partners and service providers, who will be on hand to engage with the public on the support programmes that Tamkeen provides and assist people who wish to apply to these programmes.
"We are delighted to announce the launch of this comprehensive and noteworthy event, which provides entrepreneurs, business owners, the private sector and Bahraini society at large an opportunity to see first-hand how Tamkeen can enable them to build their capabilities and achieve their potential," said Tamkeen chief executive Mahmood Al Kooheji.-TradeArabia News Service
