Manama, September 11, 2013
Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) has signed up as the silver sponsor for the 'Third Annual Tamkeen Business Quiz Show' being hosted by Bahrain's labour fund Tamkeen and FinMark Communications in November.
The event is aimed at fostering engagement between Bahrain’s business community and the public as well as to highlight the Kingdom's position as a leading financial and business hub in the region.
This year’s event will be launched in November and December in the run up to the National Day celebrations and will gather teams of participants from Bahrain’s leading companies and industry sectors.
The industries featured by the show are: Banking, Insurance, Telecommunications & Technology and Industrials – where Alba will feature as a participant.
The four industry quiz nights will be held on November 24 and 27 and December 1 and 4, where four teams from the same industry will compete.
The Grand Finale to be held on December 10 will see the four winning teams, representing their respective industries, fight for the top honours.
All shows will be interactive and held live at the Seef Mall, where members of the business community and public are encouraged to attend and take part through audience challenges.
Commenting on the initiative, Alba CEO Tim Murray said: “As one of the Kingdom’s largest companies and employers, we’re delighted to lend our support to the Tamkeen Business Quiz Show. In line with Alba’s ongoing efforts to support economic and social development and take part in community initiatives, we see this as an ideal opportunity."
"Not only does it allow us to showcase the skill and talent of our teams within Alba, it also serves as a great platform for showcasing the breadth and depth of human capital that exists in Bahrain across all sectors," he noted.
Zahraa Taher, the managing director of FinMark said: “We are delighted to welcome Alba as the silver sponsors of the show. Working together with Alba and other market leading companies, we expect this year’s event to be an even greater success and to continue to support awareness building about Tamkeen and the opportunities that exist within Bahrain’s growing private sector.”-TradeArabia News Service
