Beca wins best MICE destination award
Manama, October 6, 2011
Bahrain Exhibition and Convention Authority (Beca) has been named winner of the best Mice destination in the Middle East for 2011 by the Business Destination Travel Awards.
The awards are organised annually by Business Destinations, Tower Business Media in the UK.
The Best Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) award was based on the great contribution of Beca to the development of Mice in Bahrain and its continuing efforts to establish the kingdom as the preferred and unique destination for events, exhibitions and conference.
The nomination to the Business Destinations' fourth annual travel awards stemmed from the votes solicited through an international email campaign and participation by a vast and diverse cross section of voters, including corporate travel executives, company travel buyers from Fortune 500 companies, Mice solution providers, Association of Corporate Travel Executives members and the influential members of the business travel community.
"The award reflects the prominent position of Bahrain as the ideal venue of events, exhibitions and conventions where the kingdom's well-developed and expanding infrastructure, including information technology and communication, friendly trade and business environment, world-class lifestyle facilities, multi-cultured community and a steady economy, contributed largely to making it a key and strategic location for businesses and investments in the region," said Industry and Commerce Minister and Beca chairman Dr Hassan Fakhro.
"This signifies Beca's commitment to provide superior service and achieve the highest customer satisfaction amongst the regional competitors in the industry. The authority is also privileged to receive all support and encouragement from the leadership and the government," he added. – TradeArabia News Service
