MANAMA: Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions (HCE) aims to take the growing interiors industry in Bahrain and the GCC to a new level with its interiors expo.
The next edition of the exhibition will be held from April 24 to 26 next year at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa.
“We have repositioned the former Gulf Interiors exhibition to its new home which is simply called Interiors. This decision has been taken after feedback from our exhibitors which reinforced our own experience in the market promoting the burgeoning Bahrain and the GCC’s home-grown interiors talent,” said HCE managing director Jubran Abdulrahman.
“Over the years we have seen an increasing number of products coming to our exhibitions under the ‘made in the GCC’ label. The creative industries sectors including furnishings, materials and designs is a growing economic sector across the GCC. Excitingly in Bahrain we are developing a growing pool of creative talent in the interiors sector.
“We are committed to promote home-grown talent at the Interiors expo where visitors will see local manufacture and design alongside international brands at one strategic platform – Interiors,” added Mr Abdulrahman.
According to HCE exhibitions director Ahmed Suleiman, Interiors is quite simply the showcase for all things related to décor, furnishings and design.
“The Interiors expo will continue to lead as innovative platform to showcase luxury, creative and modern products for the home or commercial spaces,” he added.
Features for Interiors expo 2018 will include a bargain outlet section for visitors to buy designer furniture, furnishings as well as art and décor from around the world.
The new virtual home for Interiors can be found at www.interiorsexpo.net.
The Interiors expo takes place alongside two other major exhibitions – Gulf Construction Expo and Gulf Property Show, continuing the success of the only integrated B2B and B2C platforms for the construction, interior and property sectors in the Northern Gulf.
