The Show aims to create awareness of the many programmes and services on offer from Tamkeen for individuals and enterprises in the Kingdom. It will also serve to foster greater engagement between Bahrain’s business community and the public as well as to highlight the key companies and industry sectors, which have long made the Kingdom of Bahrain a leading financial and business hub in the region.
The announcement was made at a press conference held at Seef Mall and attended by members of Tamkeen, the event’s strategic partner, FinMark Communications, the event’s founders and organisers, as well as other partners and members of the media.
Speaking at the conference, Mrs. Hala Sulaiman, Manager of Marketing Communications at Tamkeen, said, “Tamkeen is pleased to continue our broad ranging efforts to support Bahrain’s business community. As an organisation, it is our sole objective to support the development of the private sector, the engine of economic growth, and our programmes, already being utilised by hundreds of businesses of all sizes, are positively impacting the development of Bahraini companies and the workforce. Our support again this year for the Business Quiz Show is the perfect opportunity to highlight the vast talent and knowledge that exists and continues to be built across all major industry sectors in Bahrain. Importantly, it also gives us a chance to generate greater awareness and encourage companies and individuals to take advantage of the many programmes, initiatives and incentives that Tamkeen has made available to support high quality private sector job creation and corporate and professional growth.”
The Tamkeen Business Quiz Show will gather teams of participants from Bahrain’s leading companies and see colleagues from within these organisations join hands in healthy and fun-spirited competition. The industries featured by the Show are Banking & Finance, Insurance, SMEs and Entrepreneurs, Telecom & Technology and Industrial.
Four consecutive quiz nights will be held, where four teams from the same industry will compete against one another in front of hundreds of viewers who will be watching the event live and following it through television, newspaper and online coverage. The Grand Finale will be held on 10 December 2013 and will see the four winning teams, representing their respective industries, compete for the top honour.
Again this year, the Tamkeen Business Quiz Show will take place at the new extension of Seef Mall maximising participation and access to the event. The Quiz will be fully interactive. In addition to seeing teams engage in a fun filled competition, the general public will also have the chance to use their knowledge of Tamkeen and its programmes, as well as Bahraini business in general, to win prizes live at the Seef Mall shows or online through a web-based quiz challenge that will soon be launched.
Ms. Zahraa Taher, Managing Director of FinMark, added, “After the success of the quiz show for two consecutive years we are delighted to once again announce Tamkeen as our strategic partner in the development of the Business Quiz Show. Tamkeen is the greatest supporter of private sector development in the Kingdom. It is the driving force behind strong SME growth and the ongoing training and development of Bahrain’s diverse and highly skilled work force. Together with Tamkeen, we will use these shows as a way to showcase the strengths of Bahrain’s economy across industries and the very talented individuals working within them. We look forward to soon announcing the names of additional sponsors and participants who will all contribute to making this year’s Tamkeen Business Quiz Show and even greater success with enhanced levels of participation, community building and enjoyment for the teams and the public.”
Further information and details on the Tamkeen Business Quiz Show and ways for the public to take part will soon be announced.
