In an effort to make Bahrain stand out as a destination that meets the needs of both business and leisure travellers, BTEA evaluated that approximately USD10 billion has been invested in development projects in 2017, while it has infrastructure projects worth over USD32 billion in the pipeline either under construction or scheduled for the near future.
In a bid to further strengthen the role of the Bahraini tourism sector as one of the main contributors to national economy, while also promoting the country’s differentiating features through its tourism marketing brand, BTEA has recently established representatives offices in strategic locations, such as Moscow, London, and Paris, to access and serve new source markets.
HAVING IDENTIFIED THE IMPORTANCE OF AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCES, BAHRAIN'S TOURISM SECTOR IS SET TO BENEFIT FROM THE OUTCOME OF THE INDUSTRY’S ONGOING EFFORTS TO TRANSFORM THE DESTINATION INTO A WORLD-RENOWNED HUB, WITH UNIQUE ACTIVITIES INSPIRED BY THE REGION’S DISTINCTIVE CHARACTERISTICS.
Considered one of the most important events in one's life, weddings and honeymoons are becoming an increasingly important segment for hoteliers and tourism industry stakeholders in the MENA region.
As one of the region’s commercial and financial powerhouses – which nonetheless boasts a rich cultural heritage as well – Bahrain takes pride in its global reputation, and as Lilian Roger, general manager, Downtown Rotana Manana, explained, the government has been continuously investing in sustaining this position.
