Analysts offer insights on billion dollar airport expansion project

Manama, Bahrain: Gulf will be presenting a project update on the Bahrain International Airport expansion, during gulfBID 2016.

A seminar will be conducted by Gulf on the Bahrain International Airport Expansion. It will take place on the 27th of April at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre between 10:00am – 11:00am.

Gulf is the virtual home of Gulf Projects and Tenders, the GCC’s project knowledge database. The project intelligence database draws on the accumulated market knowledge of Al Hilal Group, one of the GCC’s most respected trade publishers with over 40 years’ of  experience across construction, infrastructure, oil and gas, industrial and other key sectors.

The seminar is part of an ongoing programme of project information analysis to help interested companies and investors review their business development strategies“, says Ahmed Suleiman, Exhibitions Director of HCE.

The expansion of Bahrain International Airport aims to double the capacity from seven to 14 million passengers per year. It will boost the kingdom’s aviation industry, which is an integral part of Bahrain’s national gateway facilities, infrastructure and services.

“Bahrain is at the center of a number of high profile construction projects, and the airport expansion is the Kingdom’s largest infrastructure project worth $1 billion.

The expansion includes a new passenger terminal, 24 airport bridges, new arrival and departure lounges and loading bays. Works on the Airport Modernisation Programme (AMP) are expected to be completed in the first half of 2020”, says Abdul Muneer, Head of Research at Gulf

Gulf provides a detailed insight into projects from nine key sectors, giving in-depth information of the projects from feasibility up to commissioning stage.

gulfBID takes place along-side two other major exhibitions: Gulf Interiors and Gulf Property show, thus ensuring the continued success of the biggest integrated business-to-business showcase for the construction, interiors and property sectors ever to be staged in the Northern Gulf.
