So yet another Cityscape Global event is over. The Economic Development Board for Bahrain had a major stand at Cityscape for Bahrain which was great as it gave "business friendly Bahrain
" some much needed visibility in a very competitive landscape. Despite not exhibiting on the stand we were able to network and market BFH to a wide range of brokers, agents and potentially interested parties.
All who came to the Bahrain stand were able to enjoy some typically generous Bahraini hospitality with a wide range of traditional sweets and arabic coffee on offer. This years Cityscape Global event was larger with more participants from a wider range of countries than ever. The mood of the event and the market was definitely more muted and was more professionally focused than in previous years with brokers and agents more evident rather than the general public. There was an encouraging amount of interest shown in Bahrain from a wide range of parties who had either worked in Bahrain previously or were interested to know about the current situation. There is a strong sentimental attachment to Bahrain from most people who have lived or worked here due to the welcoming and friendly nature of the Bahraini people.
I attach a video which we were able to show to interested parties which highlights the ease of access to Bahrain Financial Harbour's buildings, to the office floors as well as the abundant parking available and the great views over Manama city. Bahrain Financial Harbour truly is at the heart of business in Bahrain.
Thanks go to BFH's leasing team Abdul Jaleel Abdulla and Sara Watson for agreeing to " star" in the film and to film makers Go Peep. Good job!
