Bahrain EDB’s outreach to the Tourism and Leisure sector extends globally, reaching the major conferences and conventions that investment decision makers frequently attend. These forums include the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, the Global Restaurant Investment Forum, the World Retail Congress, the World Travel Market, the Internationale Tourismus-Börse, and the Hotel Investment Conference. Investment promotion campaigns, which include one-to-one meetings with companies, throughout the GCC and in select global markets such as China, Turkey and several European countries are also key to the EDB’s strategy.

Alongside a presence at high-profile events, a program of local roundtable meetings were drawn up for each quarter with the aim of creating a collaborative real estate development approach for the country. Real estate stakeholders from across the private and public sector are brought together to identify solutions to the main challenges facing the sector and to share their general development plans for the future.

In addition, Bahrain EDB has developed an online interactive portal which features the Bahrain map outlining the existing developments and future opportunities for potential investors and real estate developers.

Overall, Bahrain EDB’s focus is on identifying and promoting potential investment opportunities through collaboration with international offices, operators and investors.
