- PRESS RELEASE
This year's Bahrain International Garden Show (BIGS) will be the highest profile event in the show's history, with a BD10,000 marketing push from the Bahrain Airport Company expected to attract more international participation.
"Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) is proud to support initiatives that promote the Kingdom of Bahrain as an important business destination, and BIGS certainly fulfills that role," said Chief Executive Officer of Bahrain Airport Company, Mr. Mohamed Yousif Al Binfalah.
"BAC is providing BIGS with exposure to a potential audience of hundreds of thousands of people every month. More than 8.4 million passengers from all over the world passed through these areas in 2012, up 9% from 2011, including many frequent visitors to Bahrain, residents and business travelers," he added.
The total media space being given to BIGS as part of the sponsorship package is valued at more than BD10,000 and will consist of video and light box displays promoting the event throughout the airport. Middle East Media (MEM) has played a vital role in making this possible.
BIGS, organised by the National Initiative for Agricultural Development (NIAD), aims to promote agribusiness sector opportunities in Bahrain. It is expected to be attended by more than 20,000 visitors, including VIP's, architects, consultants, developers, and other industry professionals, as well as hobbyists and retail consumers.
"Being able to showcase our event at Bahrain International Airport is a major benefit because it gives our show international exposure, which is what we are increasingly aiming for. Over the years BIGS has grown from a local event to an international one, attracting visitors and exhibitors from around the world. Promotional support like media space we are getting at the airport will help to further increase its international exposure," said Shaikha Maram bint Isa Al Khalifa, General Coordinator of BIGS.
In past years, BIGS has attracted exhibitors from the US, France, Spain, Italy, the UK, Germany, Turkey, Egypt, Sudan, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Yemen, Iran, Thailand, and Japan, as well as all the GCC countries.
BIGS will take place from 28th February to 2nd March, 2013 at the Bahrain International Convention and Exhibition Centre. It will be held under the patronage of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and with the support of the King's Wife Her Royal Highness Princess Sabeeka Bint Ibrahim Al Khalifa, who is President of NIAD.
