Real estate sector gears up for Gulf Property Show

The Gulf Property Show is gearing up for its debut event in a mall in Bahrain, The Avenues, from Nov. 21-24. The mall event will promote a retail route for property investors in the GCC from Saudi Arabia, Oman, the UAE and Kuwait by taking advantage of the attractive visitor location of Bahrain’s top leisure and entertainment destination — The Avenues. Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions (HCE) Managing Director Jubran Abdulrahman said: “When we launched the Gulf Property Show in 2012 we started with a simple vision, which was to create a dedicated real estate platform promoting property developments and related services from Bahrain, the Gulf and the wider international market place.” The creation of the Gulf Property Show at The Avenues was born out of the demand from exhibitors. “After months of detailed market research and customer consultation, we are delivering an exhibition dedicated to build on the Gulf Property Show’s reputation of being invaluable for sales and investment opportunities for both developers and visitors, and it will coincide with Bahrain’s marquee event, Jewellery Arabia 2018,” said Ahmed Suleiman, exhibitions director of HCE. The property show has already attracted participation from a number of developers and companies who will be providing a variety of projects from Bahrain, the UAE, UK and Turkey. “The projects on show to visitors provide excellent investment potential with entry point purchase starting at under 45,000 Bahraini dinar ($119,376) for prime real estate. There are exciting opportunities for investors available at the show and our team will be promoting this to the wider community,” added Abdulrahman. The Gulf Property Show carries the strategic sponsorship of El Mercado Village and the strategic organizational support of the Real Estate Regulatory Authority of Bahrain (RERA), Survey and Land Regulatory Bureau (SLRB) and the Urban Planning and Development Authority of Bahrain.

ZMZM Society unveils visionary strategy and new identity

ZMZM Society for Voluntary and Charitable Health Services recently unveiled its new strategy and identity, in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, aiming to tackle modern-day health care challenges.
The society, which has long been a recognized and trusted name, has renewed its commitment to providing integrated sustainable health care to people in need.
For almost 15 years, the Jeddah-based charity has worked to create innovative solutions that overcome everyday health care challenges — growing to become a formidable wealth of knowledge and experience dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for all. While the original mission of ZMZM remains unchanged, due to the changing social, economic and technological climate, and to continue improving people’s lives, the society needed a fresh approach. 
In 2016, ZMZM initiated a detailed introspective examination of its strategy and operations. The strategic transformation has been well timed — lining up correctly with the charity sector cornerstone detailed within Vision 2030. As such, ZMZM’s transformation strategy aims to produce a stronger, more unified organization, one that is better equipped to tackle modern-day health care challenges.
A timely and systematic initiative within the charity’s strategic plan has been the structured development of a new multi-sensorial, institutional identity system, supported by an employee, volunteer and donor engagement platform.
Led by Professor Adnan bin Ahmed Albar, chairman of the board of directors, and attended by members of ZMZM and senior dignitaries, the new identity system was unveiled on Feb. 28. ZMZM used this event to usher in a new age for the group, its network of volunteers and medical experts, and the people ZMZM helps every day.
Chairman Prof. Albar said he is thrilled to be spearheading this new movement and vowed to keep ZMZM ahead of the economic and social changes that are occurring throughout the Kingdom. He said that he, along with ZMZM’s supporters, are determined to work harder than ever toward a brighter future for everyone.
Director-General of the Ministry of Labor and Social Development Abdullah bin Ahmed Al-Tawi praised the ambition and dedication of ZMZM, saying: “I appreciate the efforts of ZMZM, which began with in-depth studies that carefully considered the map of the future and resulted in a more prepared organization.”
The new direction is aligned to a simple truth: That everyone is entitled to live a happy, healthy life.
“ZMZM will bring its new identity to life through a series of strategic commitments. They include prioritizing community engagement, leveraging the power of effective collaboration, working with flawless precision, committing to continuous improvement and upholding the importance of meaningful accountability,” the society said in a statement.
