“Bahrain holds a special place in our Middle East story”
Our long relationship with the Kingdom of Bahrain began in 1985, 30 years ago, when we established what was then the Kingdom’s first PR consultancy as well as H+K’s first office in the Middle East. And this office served as our Middle East regional hub for 16 years, before the Dubai office took over this role in 2001. Bahrain holds a special place in H+K’s Middle East story.
Today our Bahrain office includes local Bahrainis and expatriates, and has some of the most experienced communications professionals in the Bahrain market. The office presently handles public sector work as well as an extensive range of private sector accounts, including consumer and retail, finance, real estate and industry.
