Bahrain Maritime Festival
DATE01-30 September 2011
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
The Bahrain Maritime Festival (BMF) was conceptualised by The General Organisation of Sea Ports (GOP) to commemorate World Maritime Day (WMD), observed in September every year by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) to focus attention on the importance of shipping safety, maritime security and marine environment and to emphasize a particular aspect of IMO’s work.
The focus was on secondary school students, many of whom are still deciding on a career path. The goal was to spread awareness and promote the maritime industry as a potentially lucrative industry for students to consider as a career. North Star Associates had been appointed by the GOP to coordinate this activity as part of BMF 2011.
