Our Story

The Kingdom of Bahrain is a very special destination, a beautiful island that has long been a hub for trade, art and culture. It offers a truly authentic experience and a perfect balance between modern sophistication and timeless traditions, being a cosmopolitan society open to the world, and a warm, welcoming nation true to its identity of genuine Arabian hospitality and rich heritage. Bahrain is at the very centre of the world, where East meets West, strategically positioned and a gateway to vast markets and business opportunities.

Exhibition World Bahrain is a project that compliments Bahrain’s great appeal as a destination and capitalises on its potential to become a regional hub for the Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) industry. It is part of the Government’s strategy to prioritise investment in infrastructure and focus on projects that will attract high-potential industries, the MICE industry being one. It is the second largest infrastructure project, only following Bahrain’s new international airport, which launched in January 2021, and the largest and newest exhibitions and convention centre in the region!

Opened in November 2022, Exhibition World Bahrain is a stunning piece of architecture with exquisite accents of traditional designs, an innovative and adaptable space. The unique feature of Exhibition World Bahrain is that it is made to host multiple concurrent events of different sizes and genres. From large conventions and exhibitions, to conferences and meetings, live entertainment performances, weddings, galas and celebrations, and corporate functions.

Exhibition World Bahrain is strategically placed within Bahrain’s dynamic Sakhir area, the country’s up-and-coming hub for events, sports and entertainment. The modern Arabesque structure is adjacent to Bahrain International Circuit (BIC), Al Dana Amphitheatre, and the soon-to-be developed Bahrain International Sports City, with easy access to the new Bahrain International Airport, 18,000+ hotel rooms, and a wide range of attractions and dining experiences, including a variety of 25 F&B and retail outlets inside the venue itself.

Our dedicated team of local and international experts are driven by a passion for the industry and a commitment to give back to the Bahraini community. We are introducing a new industry to the Kingdom and we are all about generating a long-term legacy for Bahrain and elevating its MICE offering. We are focused on delivering exceptional customer experiences and ensuring success for all our clients every time.

Exhibition World Bahrain is owned by the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA), and it’s operated by BTEA’s strategic partner ASM Global, the world’s leading venue management company with over 350 venues under its portfolio worldwide.
