Bahrain to host key strategy forum
Manama, March 19, 2008
Eventscom Bahrain will organise the Central Europe & Eastern New Economies Strategies with the Gulf States Forum.
The event will be held under the patronage of Prime Minister Shaikh Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Spa from April 8-10, 2008.
Eventscom’s role will be as logistical partner overseeing total Event Management and Public Relations activities for the high profile economic and investment event - which is the first of its kind to connect the GCC with the Central and Eastern European nations, the company said in a statement.
Conceptualised by CMF-ME, the forum will be held in association with the Federation of GCC Chambers, Durrat Al Bahrain, United Nations for Industrial Development (UNIDO), EUROCHAMBERS, Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB) and Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
CMF - ME vice-chairman and managing director Osama A. Al Khajah, expressed his confidence in Eventscom’s capabilities and aptitude for this particular event.
Eventscom had previously worked with CMF in collaboration with the Bahrain Ministry of Interior on the Homeland and Global Security Forum, which took place in November of last year.
“Their performance as a local company certainly parallels - if not rivals - international standards. Hence, their expertise and proven performance record, combined with their understanding of the local and regional markets, made them the most apt choice to manage such a high profile, global event,” Khajah said.
"Bahrain has long been considered a regional hub for the financial and banking sector, and it is with much pride that we witness the kingdom’s stature evolve into a higher profile MICE destination that is attracting events of global significance, such as this upcoming forum,” said Eventscom CEO and founder Zahra’a Taher.
“We will be dedicating all efforts towards producing a benchmark Forum, and look forward to our continued cooperation with Crans Montana Forum,” said Taher.
The forum is expected to draw leading key figures and decision makes such as high profile government officials and top businessmen from countries in the EU, Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and the GCC.
Discussion topics are targeted to benefit a diverse range of participants including: ministers of finance, economy, economic development, trade, investment promotion, industry, oil and gas, telecommunications; high-level officials of international and regional organizations, Chambers of Commerce, investment promotion agencies, investment authorities and sovereign wealth funds; and chairmen, CEO’s and directors of major companies. – TradeArabia News Service
