Advertise & Sponsorship

How advertising in, or sponsoring Bahrain Arts Magazine can help showcase your company and the services you provide to an affluent, educated, arts loving client base in the Kingdom, across the region and worldwide.




Bahrain Arts Magazine is the Kingdom’s first and only international English language arts magazine devoted entirely to Bahraini and Bahrain based artists. Whether your market is primarily local, or global; reaching an affluent, educated audience, Bahrain Arts Magazine readers are urban consumers with a keen sense of creativity and expression, and a desire and flair for trying new products and experiences. They have varied interests and their high disposable incomes give them the means to keep up with their sports, hobbies, past-times and travel. Bahrain Arts Magazine readers also have expansive and diverse tastes; they are very well-travelled, outdoors types, expect good service and enjoy higher-end hotels, restaurants, food and drink.


And of course, Bahrain Arts Magazine readers are mad about the arts; they are much more likely to attend a concert, go to the theatre, visit museums and galleries, enjoy listening to new bands and music, and buy and read more books than usual.


Being difficult to reach through other media and newspapers, our readers make Bahrain Arts Magazine an extremely valuable targeted title to include into your marketing budget, and undeniably one of the most cost-effective high-end advertising platforms both in the region and globally.




Already creating quite a buzz, it targets English speaking lovers of the arts across the region and around the world, which gives unparalleled access into this very special and unique marketplace. Because of it primary online platform, Bahrain Arts Magazine readership is international, in the first three months since its launch, it has been read in 27 countries. For example: for one week (week-ending Sunday 5th August) at ISSUU alone, Bahrain Arts Magazine was viewed by readers in Bahrain, United Kingdom, Canada, India, Italy, United States, France, Philippines, Brazil and Germany. Bahrain Arts Magazine has had almost 15,000 impressions online at ISSUU (which means 15,000 people have seen its front cover), and almost 2000 full reads.
