Mr. Zayed bin Rashid Al Zayani, the Chief Executive Officer of the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA), H.E. Shaikh Khaled bin Humood Al Khalifa inaugurated Bahrain’s 29th edition of the ‘Autumn Fair 2018’, organized by Arabian Exhibition Management and held at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre until the 1st of February 2018.

Bahrain’s annual consumer products fair is considered one of the largest exhibitions of its kind and brings together numerous suppliers, retailers and consumers, increasing competition and stimulating business activity as a result.

The fair comes in line with the BTEA’s overall strategy aimed at developing and strengthening the MICE and tourism sectors under the slogan of ‘Ours. Yours.’, which contribute towards the Kingdoms economy and the 2030 Economic Vision.

“We are delighted to launch the twenty-ninth edition of the Autumn Fair, which showcases merchandise from multiple local, regional and international businesses. The exhibition is also an ideal platform for deals and investments, bringing together numerous traders and business owners. This will further contribute to the national economy and the development of the MICE sector,” said the CEO of BTEA, H.E. Shaikh Khaled bin Humood Al Khalifa.

“The annual exhibition continues to attract thousands of visitors year after year. It aims to promote the Kingdom as an ideal destination for hosting meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions,” he added.

Visitors will be able browse and shop from a wide variety of products under one roof over a period of nine days. The fair covers an area of 15,600 square meters and houses 750 local and international businesses from 18 countries. Last year’s edition witnessed a huge turnout, attracting more than 160,500 visitors from the GCC and the region, especially from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
