Euromoney Conferences, Bahrain (2017)

Attracting inward investment is as important as local growth in Bahrain and its economy. Therefore, Bahrain EDB promotes the country’s wealth of opportunities to target markets by showcasing the financial services sector’s strengths and emphasising the Kingdom’s deserved leadership as a regional financial hub.

The dedicated financial services team’s strategy includes traveling to international events, meeting with top decision makers, building relationships and ties with senior government officials, and sponsoring or hosting key events in the country.

In 2017, one of Bahrain EDB and the sector’s most significant events was the keynote annual Euromoney GCC Financial Forum, co-hosted by Bahrain EDB and its long-time relationship partner, Euromoney.

The Forum typically attracts over 600 local and international professional decision makers, policy shapers, business leaders, financiers and investors. Specifically, the event welcomes those at the forefront of developments within the financial sector - many of whom see Bahrain as an attractive centre for their own de novo operations in the capital markets, asset management, and FinTech field.

Beyond the Euromoney GCC Financial Forum, an extensive calendar of international Financial Services sector events include the Asian Financial Forum in Hong Kong, Innovate Finance Summit in London, Money Conference in Madrid, SIBOS in Toronto, FinTech Festival in Singapore, the 7th Annual Middle East Banking Innovation Summit in Dubai and more.
