Maestra Group has opened its first base in Bahrain, announcing a new partnership with the Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain, for the debut of the luxury resort’s Arena, a new 43,000 sq ft, state-of-the-art conference and exhibition facility.
As the exclusive event partner, Maestra will oversee all technical aspects of the new Arena facility, which offers a full set-up and capacity for large banquet receptions and global conferences.
Maestra’s Tom Clements commented: “We are extremely excited about this new venture and to be involved in such a high-profile and incredibly well-designed event space. For Maestra Group, this is a logical expansion of our work in Dubai, and it will also be the first step in some strategic expansion plans for Maestra Group in the Middle East.”
Maestra Dubai has already delivered a range of innovative events in Bahrain this year, and it will work with several locally based clients as well as international brands, artists and agencies in this new enterprise.
“As Bahrain becomes a global destination for premiere conferences and events in the region, it’s our pleasure to partner with Maestra and unveil a new conference facility complemented with our signature Ritz-Carlton brand service we’re known for globally,” said Bernard de Villèle, General Managerof The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain. “With modern interiors and high-tech capabilities, The Arena stands to be one of the most sought-after venues in the region and a perfect addition to the resort’s already existing portfolio.”
Overlooking the Arabian Gulf in the heart of Manama’s Seef district, The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain will be a fitting setting for the new 4,200-capacity multipurpose venue, which becomes the largest in the Kingdom.
The new venue is designed to host all types and styles of gatherings and events, including conferences, trade shows, car launches, seminars, music concerts, exhibitions and more.
Maestra Bahrain will include a core project management and technical team as well as an essential inventory of sound, lighting, AV and rigging equipment.
Working in close conjunction with the Dubai base, Maestra Bahrain will have easy access to the vast resources there – both in terms of human skills, expertise, ideas and the latest technologies in all disciplines.
“Our new set-up will allow us to service events utilising The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain facilities and services plus other Maestra clients in and around Bahrain quickly and efficiently with everything they need for a great event – from design to technical production,” concluded Clements.
