Gulf Air and Bahrain Exhibition & Convention Authority (BECA) announced that Gulf Air will be the official carrier for all events organised by BECA in Bahrain and abroad.
Gulf Air chief executive officer Bjorn Naf said that the airline and BECA have entered into a strategic alliance aimed at boosting the Kingdom’s position as a leading destination for corporate meetings, incentive travel, conferences and exhibitions.
“As the national carrier of the Kingdom, we are constantly looking at ways to promote Bahrain to the world and bring the world to the kingdom,” said Naf. Stanford-Kristiansen, BECA’s acting chief executive officer, said, “Bahrain has already established itself as a leading financial centre in the Middle East and a major destination for conferences and exhibitions. This strategic alliance is an effective mechanism for Bahrain to gain access to more markets as BECA and Gulf Air are dedicated to the highest standards in all areas of our operations.”
