700 exhibitors set for Bahrain autumn fair
Muscat, January 21, 2012
Final preparations are underway for 'The Autumn Fair,' one of Bahrain's most popular annual events which opens on Wednesday at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre in Sanabis.
Packed with more than 700 exhibitors from 23 countries, the nine-day event will showcase thousands of products from around the world.
A huge variety of goods will go on sale, including food, fashion, furniture, technology, toys and textiles.
"The Autumn Fair is a popular annual event with a unique atmosphere," said Arabian Exhibition Management project manager Mohammed Ebrahim.
"Now in its 23rd successful year, the whole of the exhibition centre is transformed into a colourful bazaar by traders who have travelled from far and wide to Bahrain, bringing with them their country's best exports and a slice of their culture.
"The largest international groups assemble to form national pavilions and include countries such as China, Egypt, Kuwait, Turkey, the UAE and Pakistan.
"With so many exhibitors, prices at the Autumn Fair can be competitive. There are potential bargains on new-to-market products and a host of regular visitor favourites."
Ebrahim said the event was also important for business. "It acts as an important sourcing venue for local firms, and wholesale agreements and new tieups will be established during the course of the exhibition," he said.
"Numerous local businesses also regularly take part in the exhibition and many offer special deals to visitors."
The event will take place under the patronage of the Industry and Commerce Ministry and run from noon to 10pm on January 25 and 27. It will also open from 10am to 1pm and 4pm to 10pm on January 26, 28 and 31 and February 1 and 2.
Special women-only mornings will take place on January 29 and 30. Entry costs 700 fils and is free for children aged under five.-TradeArabia News Service
