Shaikh Khalid Bin Hamad Swimming Challenge Celebration

Earlier this year, the son of Bahrain’s king Shaikh Khalid Bin Hamad Al Khalifa, swam an incredible 42 km across the channel between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain to raise money for cancer patients in Bahrain.

To celebrate this heroic achievement, the king commissioned a suitably splendid celebration, including an award ceremony, live performances, multimedia extravaganza and fireworks. Pico was appointed to design, manage and produce this event at extremely short notice. Relishing the challenge, we delivered a spectacular event in an unheard-of 10 days.

Our extensive experience with similar events in Bahrain proved vital – though other events were delivered on a longer timeline, usually three months. Lighting and sound equipment was brought in from Dubai, and technicians from Italy. A team of graphic film producers were flown from Italy to create the amazing projection content. Water fountains came from Paris via air and fireworks specialists were brought in from Europe and other Middle Eastern countries. The Pico team brought all these elements together beautifully and worked every available hour to deliver this important and inspirational ceremony.
