“It is important to have that group of experts and workers in the exhibitions and convention sector under the umbrella of one society to develop it. This industry, which includes exhibitions, conferences, forums, seminars and other business activities that intersects with all economic sectors, has become an important industry for the promotion and diversification of economic activity, as its investments  are growing and expanding in the region and the world and Bahrain has to work to enhance its competitiveness in this field,” Al-Saeed said.
