Batelco, Bahrain’s leading integrated communications provider has become the first lead sponsor for the Bahrain International Airshow 2014.
Batelco and the Supreme Organising Committee for BIAS 2012 signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Friday for sponsoring the 3rd Bahrain International Airshow 2014.
The MoU was signed by Batelco Chairman Shaikh Hamad Bin Abdulla Al Khalifa and Supreme Organising Committee for BIAS 2012 Vice President Captain Abdulrahman Mohammed Al-Gaoud on the sidelines of the BIAS 2012 which is currently taking place at the Sakhir Airbase.
Shaikh Hamad said that Batelco was honoured to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding expressing Batelco’s interest in supporting the 3rd Bahrain International Airshow in 2014.
“We are proud to have been an official sponsor and telecoms partner for the 2010 event and again this year. The Supreme Organising Committee and all the concerned authorities have done an excellent job in delivering these events of world-class standards that highlight the Kingdom of Bahrain in a positive way.”
Captain Al-Gaoud said that the CAA was delighted to have Batelco’s support at BIAS 2012 following their invaluable contribution towards the success of the inaugural event in 2010.
“Batelco is a national company that provides the highest quality telecommunications services both in Bahrain and abroad and their cooperation has been invaluable in meeting all the communications requirements in 2010 and again this year,” he said.
“Events of such calibre allow Bahrain to demonstrate to the international business community the outstanding capabilities offered by organisations such as the CAA and Batelco in Bahrain,” he added.
Later Captain Al Gaoud told reporters that since the inaugural Airshow in 2010, the event has emerged as one of the most successful events in terms of quality of participants and keen interest of visitors.
Being an organiser, he said, it is not appropriate to gauge the success of the ongoing airshow but the feedback from the participants is very encouraging.
“We expect that the show in 2014 will be even more successful,” Al Gaoud added.
