MANAMA: The decision to set up a separate interiors and design show alongside the fifth gulfBID exhibition has proved a big hit with exhibitors. The three-day event at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre (BIEC) is a dedicated trade show in the Northern Gulf for the construction and interiors sectors.
It features 166 exhibitors from 21 countries and has already been branded a success by exhibitors.
"We are getting very strong feedback from the participants even on the first day and the general view is that setting up a separate interiors event is just what exhibitors were looking for," said Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions (HCE) managing director Jubran Abdulrahman.
"gulfBID has always attracted a strong showing both from across the region and internationally, but the advent of gulfINTERIORS exhibition as a standalone event has seen particular interest from international players in the areas of interior design.
"It has brought in new participants to exhibit their products to customers across the region who are coming to the show and it is going down very well with visitors," he added.
