GFH Properties, the real estate arm of GFH Financial Group, today announced that it has joined BIPEX as the Strategic Partner for the 2017 Property Exhibition to be held in the Kingdom of Bahrain between October 26 and 28 2017 under the patronage of His Excellency Deputy Prime Minister Sheikh Khaled bin Abdulla Al Khalifa.

GFH Properties, a market leader in the real estate sector, currently has a rich portfolio of multiple landmark projects known for excellence and innovation. The real estate arm of GFH Financial Group has originated some of Bahrain’s most iconic projects and further expanded its footprint across the GCC markets.

Currently, a number of its projects are underway in Dubai and in the Group’s home base of Bahrain. These include the Harbour Row and Harbour Walk developments in Bahrain at the Bahrain Financial Harbour and the Dubai-based gated community California Village. These come in addition to GFH’s flagship project Villamar @ the Harbour in Bahrain where works have commenced and progressing steadily. Each of these mixed-use development projects offer an exclusive sense of luxury and reflect GFH’s deep commitment to raising the bar in terms of excellence in design, build and usability.

Commenting, Mr. Majed Al Khan, CEO of GFH Properties, said, “We are once again pleased this year to announce GFH’s support and role as the lead sponsor for BIPEX 2017. As a significant investor and leading developer in the Kingdom of Bahrain, we are committed to promoting the immense opportunities that exist in the Kingdom’s real estate sector and particularly in the world class projects that GFH is currently developing in the heart of Manama at the iconic, waterfront Bahrain Financial Harbour. We look forward to the opportunity to showcase our projects and help local buyers and investors and those from across the region better understand the market and the value that is on offer in Bahrain. As a Group, our ongoing investments and new development activities in Bahrain reflect our strong belief and confidence in the market and in Bahrain’s economy as well as in our own ability to deliver unique and high quality offerings for investors and end users.”

Speaking on behalf of BIPEX 2017, Mr. Mohammed Khalil Alsayed, Chairman of the BIPEX Organizing Committee, added “GFH has been supporting us for several years and their presence in Bipex is an added value to the exhibition. We want Bipex to be their first preferred platform to reach out to the right audience and also showcase their promising outlook for our economy.”

BIPEX 2017 will take place at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Center. As Bahrain’s leading property show, BIPEX holds a significant place on the Kingdom’s real estate industry calendar of events. A professionally organized non-profit event, it serves as a bellwether for the industry, offers a platform for gaining insight into the sector’s performance and future direction, and promotes the region’s major infrastructures and real estate properties.

The event’s organiser is the Bahrain Society of Engineers (BSE), the premier body representing engineering professionals in the Kingdom. It is tasked with managing each BIPEX event in Bahrain. The organisation was established in 1972 as a professional voluntary non-profit organization. It seeks to advance the engineering profession, while striving for continuous skill enhancements through training and the conducting of technical and professional development programmes.
