BTEA: Strengthening collaboration with private sector ahead of Bahrain’s Festive Season

Manama, Nov. 8 (BNA Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA) Chief Executive Officer Dr Nasser Qaedi said that the private sector in the tourism and hospitality industry are the Authority’s key partners.


Their collaboration is crucial to the success of the forthcoming tourism season and all organizations involved in the tourism sector or events industries must be very well prepared for Bahrain Festive Season as unprecedented numbers of visitors to the Kingdom are expected, he said.


This initiative was highlighted over the course of several meetings held with the representatives of the tourism and hospitality sectors and the commercial malls who discussed ways of future collaboration between the Authority and the private sector through presenting BTEA’s plans and initiatives in order to achieve a higher impact on the tourism economy.


"Many suggestions were relayed by our partners, and we are here to cooperate constructively with them," Qaedi said.


"Working together facilitates idea generation and creativity resulting into highest returns from the upcoming Bahrain Festive Season."


These meetings were held in preparation for Bahrain Festive Season, a calendar full of events and activities.


These include the celebrations of the national holidays, New Year's Eve as well as several major exhibitions, including Jewellery Arabia, the Bahrain International Air Show and the annual Bahrain Grand Prix, with estimates of higher visitors than in the record year of 2022.


The Authority said it appreciated the high engagement of the private sector and supported all parties to enhance their tourism products. 


As a result, all attendees resolved to review ways of cooperation in order to ensure the success of Bahrain Festive Season, it said.
