This collaboration has delivered exclusive experiences, establishing significant connections between elite travelers and the jewel of the Middle East, Bahrain. The prestigious event, “Connections Luxury Bahrain”, took place from 15 to 18 October 2023 and has already made a huge impact in the world of luxury travel.
The main objective of this partnership between the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA) and Connections Luxury is to significantly profile and position Bahrain as a leading tourism destination among prominent global tour operators. This result represents a key milestone in promoting Bahrain as the preferred luxury destination in the Middle East. The event brought together an elite gathering of outstanding international tour operators and representatives from the global luxury tourism sector and destination management companies. Over the course of three days, participants were given an exclusive opportunity to discover the diverse attractions Bahrain has to offer, laying the foundation for the Kingdom to shine on the world stage.
The event garnered tremendous recognition and feedback from attendees, highlighting the Kingdom’s prominence in the luxury travel industry. Connections Luxury Bahrain participants were offered a host of experiences that captured the essence of Bahrain’s luxury offerings. Among them, spa treatments in luxury hotels proved to be a highlight for many. One participant noted, “They had an amazing experience with the hotel’s offerings, such as spa treatments, which were incredibly relaxing. The experience was really nice.”
Adventurers had the chance to hold a falcon, which, although petrified, left an indelible mark, and the calligraphy session, where participants’ names were inscribed in Arabic, providing a unique and personalized memento. A leisurely stroll around the resort added to the overall charm. As one participant summarized, “It was a good experience and now I can go back to the UK and passionately sell the products.”
Another participant emphasized the variety of experiences, stating, “I’ve been in two experiences so far. One involved a team helmet trial at the Bahrain circuit and the other was off-road. These experiences not only showcased the Bahrain International Circuit, but also shed light on the kind of adventures that await in Bahrain.”
