Bahrain's labour fund Tamkeen has signed an agreement with Work Smart, organisers of the upcoming 'Innovation in Technology Conference' and 'eShabab Competition 2013', as a strategic partner of the two events which will be held in early July.
As per the agreement, Bahrainis can benefit from Tamkeen's 'Conference Attendance Support Scheme,' reported the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
The scheme, launched in 2012, enables Bahrainis to attend conferences, seminars, forums or similar short-term events by subsidising 80 per cent of the registration and attendance fees.
The 'Conference Attendance Support Scheme' is part of Tamkeen's objective to develop the capabilities and skills of Bahrainis and enhance their employability.
It enables Bahrainis to find out about international best practices, create valuable networking opportunities to boost their careers, as well as promote Bahrain as a leading events and training hub.
The 'Innovation in Technology Conference' is expected to attract more than 400 decision-makers and professionals from companies in the ICT industry.
In addition, the event will feature panel discussions with 20 renowned experts on the latest innovations and trends in the field.
