Manama, July 19, 2011
Batelco has won a silver award for its annual report produced by Smart Media, the annual report company, at the LACP (League of American Communications Professionals) 2010 Vision Awards.
The 2010 Vision Awards annual report competition drew one of the largest number of submissions ever, representing a broad range of industries and organizational sizes. More than 5,000 entries representing upwards of two-dozen countries were received.
The other winners in the telecommunications category included industry leaders Turkcell, Turkey, China Telecom, Hutchinson Telecom, Hong Kong and Rogers Communications from Canada.
“We selected Smart Media to design and produce our 2010 Annual Report based on their impressive reputation,” said Batelco Group chief executive officer Peter Kaliaropoulos.
“It is certainly gratifying for Batelco and Bahrain to compete with thousands of companies at the international level and be selected for such auspicious recognition together with some global industry leaders.”
“I am also grateful to Batelco’s talented PR people and the strong partnership they forged with Smart Media professionals to produce the winning Annual Report,” he added.
“Leading companies in the Gulf such as Batelco have an important role to play in positioning ‘Gulf Inc.’ to the rest of the world. And the annual report is an ideal vehicle for this. Thus, Batelco brings value not just to Bahrain but also to the region by their annual report competing so effectively on a global scale,” said Smart Media chairman Dr Vijith Kannangara. – TradeArabia News Service
