Trowers & Hamlins sponsors BIPEX Forum

Having recently won Real Estate Team of the Year award at the Corporate Counsel Middle East Awards 2016, International law firm Trowers & Hamlins were delighted to sponsor the Forum alongside the Bahrain International Property Exhibition (BIPEX) on 3 November 2016 for the second consecutive year.

BIPEX is the leading Real Estate exhibition in Bahrain attended by exhibitors and visitors from around the region. It aims to facilitate interactive dialogue amongst all stakeholders of the real estate, tourism and hospitality industries in Bahrain.

Alongside the overall theme of BIPEX of "Structuring the Future", the Forum focussed on opportunities and the potential in Bahrain's Tourism and Hospitality industry, an important area of growth in Bahrain’s real estate industry. The event brought together key individuals and decision makers across the tourism and leisure sector, and highlighted regional and industry trends and the potential impact upon Bahrain.

The Forum comprised speaker slots presented by the Bahrain Economic Development Board and Colliers International, with additional panellists representing the Gulf Hotels Group, Diyar Al Muharraq and Premier Group.

Peter Greatrex, a Real Estate partner at Trowers & Hamlins who moderated the Forum, said:

" We are delighted to sponsor the Forum at BIPEX for the second year running under the kind and esteemed patronage of His Excellency Shaikh Khaled Bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, Deputy Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain. BIPEX is a key event for the Bahrain real estate sector and continues to grow each year showing the strength of this sector.

We are extremely grateful to the BIPEX Committee for their support in enabling us to stage the Forum, and to all the speakers and panellists for generously giving their time and insight to make the event such a success. "

Sallie Bowtell, who leads Trowers & Hamlins' International Hospitality and Leisure sector and appeared as a panellist, added:

"The Tourism and Hospitality sector in Bahrain is extremely well placed to continue to grow to help increase the number of visitors to Bahrain, leading to an increase in employment, reputation and ultimately GDP.  At Trowers, we are continuing to see an increase in clients looking for advice in this very wide sector as it continues to grow.
