The unique atmosphere created by the Autumn Fair consistently attracts over 150,000 shoppers from Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, whilst also acting as an important sourcing venue for distributors and agents in the Gulf region. The entire exhibition centre becomes a colourful bazaar, transformed by traders who have traveled from far and wide to Bahrain, bringing with them their country’s best exports. The largest international groups assemble to form national pavilions and include countries such as China, Egypt, Yemen, Kuwait, Turkey, Syria, UAE and Pakistan.
