Bahrain is to welcome 2022 by brightening up its skies and the hearts and minds of people here with some scintillating fireworks. The COVID-19 pandemic, which took the world by storm in 2020, had cast a dark shadow on the birth of 2021, with celebrations remaining a muted affair worldwide. To ensure the safety and health of the people, world nations last year set aside their plans to burst their skies with colour.

Bahrain had also cancelled its New Year Eve fireworks display in 2020 to avoid crowding and help curb the spread of the virus. At that time, BTEA said they cancelled the festivity to support state efforts to combat the pandemic.

“Solidarity with the frontlines in combating the coronavirus will bring life back to normal and return celebrations,” BTEA had said. However, as 2021 comes to a close, the scene is much better. The world had also regained much of its lost energy and enthusiasm.

The changing health situation, backed by intense vaccination programmes, is now pushing the world back to life as usual, but with caution. Bahrain had also come a great way around by adjusting to the new normal.

A tender launched by the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority says Bahrain is moving ahead with plans to burst its skies with some thrilling colour as 2022 sets its foot on the planet. BTEA is seeking proposals from highly qualified companies for the New Year’s Eve 2022 “Fireworks Management.”

BTEA says it is looking forward “to build on the success of New year’s eve previous edition to maximise its potential and success.” If interested in taking up the job, make your bids before the 31st of October 2021, with a BD1,000 bond and BD50 tender fees.

Separately, BTEA had also launched a tender inviting proposals from companies for the New Year’s Eve 2022 “Event and Entertainment Management.” Interested companies should make bids before the 31st of October 2021, with a BD1,000 bond and BD50 tender fees.
