Bahrain Bodyshop Association convenes for the first time

IBIS Worldwide, a global leader in industry event organisation, is thrilled to announce a pioneering collaboration initiative, the Bahrain Bodyshop Association, an outcome of the constructive dialogue at the inaugural IBIS Bahrain National Forum last year. This joint endeavour, staunchly supported by both IBIS and the Bahrain Standards and Guidelines (BSG), marks a significant stride towards a unified and robust automotive repair industry.

The Kingdom of Bahrain stands on the brink of monumental change. A series of strategic dialogues are on the horizon, where Bahraini regulators will engage in discussions with consolidated representations of insurers, under the auspices of the Bahrain Insurance Association, and automotive body repair shops, facilitated through the newly-formed Bahrain Bodyshop Association. These forthcoming deliberations promise to hold substantial implications for safety, skill enhancement, industry standards, and sustainability in the industry. All the while, they embody a spirit of cooperation and concentrate on Bahrain’s ambitious Vision 2030 – a fully nationalised collision repair industry.

We extend our warmest applause to the bold industry leaders who have taken this unprecedented step. Their determination has the capacity to elevate the entire automotive repair industry and provide superior service to the people of Bahrain. It is with overwhelming pride that we at IBIS and BSG pledge our unwavering support to this extraordinary journey.

Bahrain, you continue to shine as a beacon of innovation, inspiring others to dare and dream.

Stay tuned – together, we are redefining the future of our industry!
