Manama: FinMark Communications, a strategic local and international communications consultancy, yesterday announced it will host the fifth Annual Bahrain Business Quiz Show, to be held alongside Bahrain’s National Day celebrations in late November and December.
The event is being organised to showcase the talent and skills of the local business community across key economic sectors and to create a platform for the business community to connect with peers and the general public.
The Business Quiz will consist of four nights where four teams from the same industry will compete against one another.
Industry nights will include banking and finance, insurance, industrial and general business.
Winners of each industry night will move ahead to the grand finale. All quiz nights will take place in front of a live audience and will test the knowledge of participants about their industry and Bahrain’s position as a leading business hub in an enjoyable and competitive atmosphere.
They will also feature live entrainment and performances by local artists and success stories from the business community.
“We are delighted to announce the fifth Annual Bahrain Business Quiz Show. Building on the show’s track record of success, we are looking forward to welcoming back sponsors and participants from previous years and attracting new teams and audiences. This event, which is being held alongside Bahrain’s National Day celebrations helps in strengthening communication among talent individuals across various industries and promoting the spirit of team work and community,” FinMark Communications managing director Zahraa Taher said.
She added: “As part of the show’s aims, we will also be looking to discover and promote entertainment talent among local artists, entertainers and presenters. We will soon announce details for a casting competition to choose a male and female host for the show as well other competitions to select entertainment to feature at each quiz night. Talent will be evaluated by a judging committee that consists of well-known figures from Bahrain’s media.”
Winners of previous shows have included Thomson Reuters, BBK, Benefit and Al Salam Bank.
More information will be announced soon on the event, sponsors and participating teams.
