Hempel to teach painting skills at Bahrain expo

MANAMA, April 20, 2016

Hempel Paints, a specialist in coatings and paints used in interior decoration, will be teaching painting skills to children at the crèche being set up for the visitors of the gulfInteriors expo.

The Northern Gulf's highly acclaimed annual expo for interior design and fit-out firms will run from April 26 to 28 at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre.

It is being organised by Bahrain-based Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions (HCE) under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prime Minister of Bahrain Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa.

The crèche at gulfInteriors is a hit among some of the family visitors at the expo, said Hempel, which is already playing a key role at the event as a strategic sponsor.

The company will be supplying the crèche with arts and crafts materials such as water-based paints, papers, colouring books and pencils. It has also hired a professional artist to teach the children painting techniques. In addition, children will receive stickers of Hempel Mascots.

“As a regular exhibitor we have seen how popular the crèche at gulfInteriors Exhibition is for some of the family visitors of the exhibition. Children love to paint, so we want them to enjoy themselves by painting in the crèche using Hempel’s paints,” remarked Jamil Matraji, the sales manager of Hempel Paints.

The crèche will be managed by independent nannies at all times and will also have a selection of movies to keep the children entertained, he added.

Welcoming the initiative, Jubran Abdulrahman, the managing director of HCE: "We are delighted to have Hempel Paints support the gulfInteriors Crèche. Children below the age of 12 years are not permitted into the premises of the exhibition for safety reasons making the crèche essential for parents visiting and enabling them to enjoy the exhibition while their children are being looked after."

"We will incorporate an added facility of putting the paintings on social media with prizes and gifts, courtesy of Hempel for some of the children," he added.

A dedicated interiors event, gulfInteriors provides the unique opportunity for manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, designers, architects and contractors to showcase a range of luxurious, designer and innovative products for house, home, or commercial spaces.

Both exhibitors and visitors can enjoy a range of networking opportunities to develop their creativity and experience the innovative atmosphere created by the annual expo, said the organisers.

gulfInteriors Exhibitions 2016, sponsored by KMC Building Material and Equipment along with Hempel Paints, will run from 10am to 9pm, it stated.

“Hempel paints have a strong community commitment in Bahrain. We see this contribution very much as part of our company commitment to support such initiatives,” remarked Matraji.-TradeArabia News Service
