Wataniya Airways, Kuwait’s premium service airline, recently sponsored and participated at the successful “Proud 2 Be Kuwaiti” (P2BK) exhibition, which was held at Mishref International Exhibition Fairground between 16th and 19th March. The exhibition was held under the Patronage of H.H Sheikh Nasser Mohammed Al Ahmad Al Sabah, Prime Minister of Kuwait.
The exhibition aimed to give young Kuwaiti entrepreneurs the chance to meet with real business people in a business environment throughout the four-day event. Students and young exhibitors with start-up businesses were able to showcase their talents and ideas and interact with a broad range of successful business professionals, ask them questions and learn first hand some of the major challenges in running a successful business.
Jassim AlQames, Public Relations Manager at Wataniya Airways said: “As a proud Kuwaiti airline that carries the symbol of Kuwait all over the world, we believe that these young Kuwaitis represent the essence and values of Kuwait. With their determination, hard work, and innovation, they are the future of Kuwait and we are proud to be Kuwaitis and proud to be supporting them in this exhibition that became the landmark of young Kuwaiti entrepreneurs.”
P2BK was set up four years back by a group of dedicated professional Kuwaiti individuals with the aim of providing a structured forum for Kuwaiti youth to meet and interact in a professional environment with established companies. The idea is to enable budding entrepreneurs to gain exposure to knowledge and experience, giving them a stronger understanding of business which they can use in developing their future careers.
