July 2017

Leading regional groups including some of Bahrain’s top developers have been shortlisted for this year’s Gulf Property Show awards in the ‘Best Stand Design’ category, said the event organiser Bahrain-based Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions (HCE).

The nominees include Diyar Al Muharraq, Manara Development, Bahrain Marina Development, First Bahrain, Fontana Real Estate, Bin Faqeeh, Naseej, Eagle Hills, Dilmunia, Eskan Bank and Survey and Land Registration Bureau.

A boutique showcase for real estate and property, the Gulf Property Show was held from May 9 to 11 under the patronage of HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, Prime Minister of Bahrain, in the capital Manama.

The three-day event took place alongside two other major exhibitions – Gulf Construction Expo and Gulf Interiors, continuing the success of the only integrated B2B and B2C platforms for the construction, interior and property sectors in the Northern Gulf, said HCE.

It provides a unique opportunity for manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, designers, architects and contractors to showcase a wide range of luxurious, designer and innovative products for homes or commercial spaces.

“The increasing size of Gulf Property Show is recognised by the rising number of exhibitors on the shortlist,” remarked exhibitions director Ahmed Suleiman.

“The criteria include creativity, brand promotion, investor attraction and functionality for conducting business on the stand. The standard of Gulf Property Show 2017 stands was extremely high, which made the shortlisting task harder,” he noted.

The nominated stand designs can be viewed online at the Gulf Property Show website – – while votes can be cast via a Facebook poll. The polling closes on September 19 and the winner will be announced in October at the HCE Events 2018 launch.
