USA Partnership Pavilion

Experience more of what you exhibit for in the USA Partnership Pavilion 

Long before American exhibitors open for business at the Bahrain International Airshow 2018, the stage is set for their success.

  • As home to U.S. Naval Forces Central Command and the U.S. Navy Fifth Fleet, Bahrain is well-versed and invested year-round in America’s brand of aerospace and defense.
  • With the expansion of Bahrain International Airport underway and billions in related infrastructure spending expected, U.S.-made aircraft, parts and services are well-positioned to compete in this commercial aviation market, which is forecast to grow from 8.7 million passengers per year today to 14 million — as total Middle East traffic increases to 414 million by 2036.

Against this backdrop, the USA Partnership Pavilion will make its debut in Bahrain at BIAS 2018. Organized by Kallman Worldwide, Inc., in coordination with numerous government agencies, including the departments of Commerce, Defense and State, the Pavilion will serve as America’s headquarters at the show.

As a national presence at BIAS 2018, the USA Partnership Pavilion stands as a patriotic expression of collective U.S. industry pride, presented in the spirit of global partnership.

The Pavilion is also practical. It gives participating American exhibitors — from established OEMs to first-time small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) — instant equity and scale without having to attract visitor attention and interest entirely on their own. Instead, they start the show as a part of a high-profile community in a prominent location designed to attract more buyers, inspire ideas and insights and maximize their exposure and impact on site.

Kallman’s experience is America’s on-site advantage

Kallman Worldwide has been organizing exhibitions and exhibitors in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region for four decades in multiple industries including aerospace and defense, oil & gas, mining and medical.

At BIAS 2018, the third edition of the show to feature an exhibition hall in addition to the event’s familiar chalets, that experience translates into more value on the exhibit floor. Prime space, quality turnkey and custom stand designs, professional amenities and staff, plus exclusive events and programs make the USA Partnership Pavilion the first-choice for American exhibitors.

Kallman also offers a co-exhibitor option to exhibit as a multi-unit corporation, membership association or state economic development group. Such multi-faceted organizations often find economies of scale in building their own “pavilion-within-the-Pavilion” to showcase distinct business units, affiliates or investors under a unified “master brand”.

This approach is also a great option for OEMs that want to showcase all of the important suppliers that contribute to the success of their big centerpiece programs such as fighters or commercial aircraft.

Kallman Worldwide Sales Manager Mike Petrassi and President/CEO Tom Kallman hosted Bahrain Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications, His Excellency Engineer Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, Farnborough International Commercial Director, Amanda Stainer, and Head of the Bahrain International Airshow Group, Yousif Mahmoud for a presentation of BIAS 2018 in The FORUM at the USA Partnership Pavilion during the Paris Air Show 2017.
