Muscat, 04 August 2019: Following in the footsteps of its successful Nizwa event in June, Oman Arab Bank’s (OAB) Hayakkum made its second stop in Sur on August 1. Held at City Center Sur, the event included a number of fun games and activities for both children and adults, while at the same time providing a platform for a number of artisans and SMEs from the region to showcase their products and services.
Commenting on the roadshow, Hilal Al Siyabi, the Head of Corporate Communication at OAB said, “Getting closer to our customers and the community is something we always strive for and informal gatherings such as these are a great way to achieve this. It allows us to talk directly with them as well as address any queries or concerns they might have. It also serves as a great meeting space for families, friends and entrepreneurs to interact with each other.”
Hayakkum Sur is the second in a series of four gatherings where the Bank will be addressing their customer’s queries and showcasing the Bank’s range of products and services. These include everything from the Bank’s Hasaad Savings Accounts, to biometric security and mobile banking. In addition, as with the event in Nizwa, OAB once again invited a number of artisans and SMEs from the region to join them at the Mall and participate in the roadshow.
“Given the vital role that SMEs play in the economic diversification of our country, we, as a leading financial institution in the country, need to make every effort possible to help them achieve success. Events such as our Hayakkum roadshow offer them the perfect environment under which they can directly interact with prospective customers as well as spread awareness about the products and services they offer,” added Hilal Al Siyabi.
This event was first and foremost a family event. As such, the bank also hosted a number of fun activities for the entire family to enjoy, such as face painting, henna, games and spot prizes. The bank even hosted a magic show and bubble show for children.
This is the second of four stops on OAB’s Hayakkum Roadshow. The next will be Salalah, followed by Sohar, respectively.
