Tamkeen and FinMark Communications announced that the Second Annual Tamkeen Business Quiz Show is being supported by the Bahrain Association of Banks (BAB) and the Bahrain Insurance Association (BIA) in order to promote awareness of their respective industries and encourage participation among industry corporates. Bahrain is a leading centre in the region for Banking and Insurance, and the Quiz dedicates one night of competition for the Banking industry, one night for insurance and two further nights for Telecoms & Technology and Industrial companies.
This year's event will be launched in early December to coincide with the Kingdom's National Day celebrations. The competitions will take place in front of live audiences at the Seef Mall in order to maximise public participation and awareness building among corporates and individuals of the opportunities that exist in Bahrain's private sector and the programmes and initiatives of Tamkeen, which are aimed at job creation and private sector growth. Episodes will also be featured on BTV and in Bahrain's print and online media.
The four industry quiz nights will be held on 2, 4, 5 and 6 December 2012, where four teams from the same industry will compete. The Grand Finale to be held on 11 December 2012 will see the four winning teams, representing their respective industries, compete for the top honour.
Speaking on behalf of the organisations, Mr. Abdulkarim Bucheery, Chairman of the BAB, and Mr. Younis Al Sayed, Chairman of the BIA, said: "We're pleased to join together with Tamkeen and the organizers in order to help promote the Tamkeen Business Quiz among our corporates and professionals in the Banking and Insurance sectors. There is a great deal of talent and innovation in Bahrain's Banking and Insurance industries and we're delighted that there is an event focused on building awareness of the highly skilled and talented individuals working within them. We will put our industry knowledge, expertise and networks at the disposal of the Quiz and look forward to a successful event for all participating teams and the public."
Commenting on the announcement, Ms. Zahraa Taher, Managing Director of FinMark Communications, said: "We're both delighted and extremely lucky that in addition to Tamkeen which supports companies across industry sectors, we also now have the support of both the BAB and BIA for this year's business quiz series. We're confident that their industry expertise and close ties with corporates and professionals within their respective sectors will go a long way towards enhancing the Quiz nights dedicated to the Banking and Insurance industries. These are two of Bahrain's most dynamic sectors and we expect that with the support of these dedicated industry organizations these nights will prove a great success in raising industry awareness and in enhancing the quality of the challenge for the participating teams."
The Quiz series will also be fully interactive and in addition to testing industry teams will also test the public's knowledge of Bahraini business and of Tamkeen and its programmes. Members of the public correctly answering Quiz questions and other exciting challenges will be given the opportunity to win an array of prizes. The public prize competitions will take place during each Quiz night at the Seef Mall.
