Manama is the capital and largest city of Bahrain. Home to 400,000 people, the city is served by Bahrain International Airport, while a series of ring roads, expressways and arterial roads extend outwards from the CBD, fueling urban expansion. It is also an emerging financial hub, benefitting from proximity to the UAE and Saudi Arabia, in addition to its thriving petrochemicals industry, which continues to power the Bahrani economy and the growth of Manama’s urban population.
Notable employers in the region include Ahli United Bank, Arab Banking Corporation, Gulf International Bank, Ithmaar Bank and the National Bank of Bahrain, while Fakhro Group, VIVA Bahrain, Swiftair Bahrain and MTI Consulting are just a few of the non-financial sector companies who have established their headquarters here. The Bahraini government is also a key influence, leading efforts to diversify the economy, while over four million tourists visit Manama each year, attracted by its Arabic culture and heritage.
You can find office space at a wide range of locations in Manama, with high-speed Internet, utilities and a staffed reception supplied as standard. However, if you are looking for the benefits of a private office without the cost, you may prefer to view our co-working options, with affordable plans available to suit your needs. We offer meeting rooms for hire by the hour in many of our centres or, if you are working as you travel, you may wish to use our business lounges, conveniently situated close to the city's major transport interchange hubs and accessible with a Businessworld membership. You can also set up a virtual office at any of our Manama centres, allowing your organisation to establish an immediate presence in the wider surroundings.
