Gulf Construction Expo to build on legacy

October 2016

Bahrain-based Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions (HCE) has rebranded its flagship gulfBID exhibition as the Gulf Construction Expo.

Launched in 2006, the event has emerged as the premier annual expo for construction and building materials in the Northern Gulf. 

Now in its 11th edition, Gulf Construction Expo 2017 will be held from May 9 to 11  at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre, under the patronage of HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, the Prime Minister of Bahrain.

For 2017 show, the event has partnered with Gulf Construction, the region’s leading construction magazine, to further promote the construction and building materials sectors.

“Gulf Construction Expo will build on the successful foundations set by gulfBID for over 10 years,  by continuing to deliver the Northern Gulf’s showcase for the construction sector to a targeted visitor base of property developers, interior designers, architects, consultants and contractors, procurement managers and investors from around the GCC,” said Jubran Abdulrahman, the managing director of HCE.

The expo, he stated, will remain an innovative showcase for the construction sector through its added value benefits and virtual exhibition.

“The change in name is a strategic branding opportunity to tie in the goodwill of the GCC’s most successful construction journal Gulf Construction, which has for over 35 years been the publication of choice for the construction industry not just in the GCC but internationally,” he added.

Gulf Construction Expo is supported by AHK Chambers of Commerce in Germany, PHD Chambers in India, British Expertise and a host of media partners. 

The show takes place alongside gulfInteriors and the Gulf Property Show, providing an integrated business-to-business showcase for the construction, interiors and property sectors  in the Northern Gulf.
