Manama, April 22, 2012
Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) has invited more than 100 of its local, regional and international customers as well as suppliers to the ongoing Formula One Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2012 at the Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir.
Alba’s invitees – spanning some of its key territories in the Middle East, Asia, Europe and other countries – have been specially invited to watch the three-day sporting event which ends today as well as enjoy the attractions Bahrain has to offer as a tourism destination, a statement from the company said.
As a partner of the BIC, Alba has its own private lounge along the circuit’s Oasis Complex and part of the exclusive Paddock Club area.
Alba’s guests also attended a special gala dinner held in their honour at the Regency InterContinental Hotel on April 21. Members of the executive management team and managers of various departments were also present.
Laurent Schmitt, chief executive, Alba, said: "Alba values the contribution our customers and suppliers have made in strengthening the company’s reputation as a leading aluminium smelter in the world. It is through their trust and support the company has been able to achieve its goals, and hence, it was a real privilege to meet and interact with them and learn of how our aluminium products are meeting their own requirements.”
A detailed itinerary has been planned for the guests to visit Bahrain's historical sites, museums, shopping centres and restaurants, the statement said. They will also undertake a tour of the Alba plant and see the state-of-the-art production processes being used to manufacture its high-grade aluminium products. – TradeArabia News Service
