Manama, July 26, 2010
Coca-Cola, the world's largest beverage company, will be a key sponsor of the third annual Food and Hospitality Expo which will take place in Bahrain from February 8 to 10 next year.
An agreement in this regard was signed by Bahrain Exhibition and Convention Authority (BECA) acting chief executive officer Mohamed Al Ahmadi and Coca-Cola marketing and business development manager (Bahrain and Qatar) Shibu Thomas.
'BECA is delighted to have the support of Coca-Cola Bahrain as one of our leading sponsors and thank the management for its continued support for this important event in Bahrain's exhibition calendar. With continued local support, the Food and Hospitality Expo is growing rapidly, and it is a true reflection of the success of the government's strategy to position Bahrain as a key destination for business-to-business exhibitions.'
Dedicated to the food, beverage and hospitality industries, the Expo will bring together an international audience of professionals providing an ideal opportunity to facilitate business transactions worldwide.
The expo doubled in size in 2010 from its inaugural exhibition and is, once again, set to show tremendous growth for the 2011 event, with almost 50 per cent of space already being booked.
'We look forward with anticipation to yet another successful Food and Hospitality Expo and to the business opportunities this event provides. We thank BECA for this important initiative which provides a unique business opportunity for trading companies within the industry,' Thomas said.
The event has as a gold sponsor Bahrain Airport Services and Bahrain This Month as a media sponsor. It is also supported by the Industry and Commerce Ministry, Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Tamkeen.
