About Us

Located in the heart of Arabia, the Kingdom of Bahrain is a modern, progressive and vibrant country often referred to as the ‘Pearl of the Arabian Seas’.

Bahrain is a very special destination, a beautiful island, authentic in every way and where the warmth and hospitality of the Bahraini people will shine through and truly capture everyone’s heart.

Opening in late 2022, Exhibition World Bahrain is a stunning piece of architecture that embraces the rich Arabic art and culture within its design. The natural light shining through the elegant Mashrabiya design accents throughout the entire venue. An innovative, flexible and adaptable space that caters from large conventions and exhibitions to meetings, entertainment, concerts, gala events and celebrations.

As the world’s leading venue management company, ASM Global is truly proud to have been appointed to manage the venue on behalf of its owners, the Bahrain Tourism & Exhibitions Authority. The depth and breadth of ASM Global’s experience combined with our talented and passionate team of professionals will ensure your event is an outstanding success and a truly memorable experience.

Exhibition World Bahrain is a project led by the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority and is managed by the world leader in exhibitions and venue management, ASM Global.
