MUSCAT, 02 September 2014 – Bank Muscat, the flagship financial services provider in the Sultanate, evoked big response to its presence at Salalah Tourism Festival celebrating the monsoon splendour and cultural heritage of Oman, which draws to a close on 6 September.
In all the previous editions of the annual festival directed towards supporting Oman's tourism industry, Bank Muscat has been closely involved with the popular family holiday event. The partnership with Salalah Tourism Festival is an earnest attempt by Bank Muscat to propagate the core family values held dear by Omanis, bringing together citizens, residents and visitors.
As the nation's leading financial institution, Bank Muscat seeks to utilise all opportunities in reaching out to people. Bank Muscat stalls adorned the festival venues where the bank personnel were on hand to familiarise visitors on various promotions and campaigns linked to services and products offered by the bank. Bank Muscat ATMs and CDMs offered superior levels of banking convenience and connectivity to visitors and tourists.
The bank utilised the opportunity to host exciting events, including a series of al Mazyona prize draws. The bank celebrated the RO 750,000 al Mazyona prize draw for the quarter ending June at a grand ceremony held as part of the festival. A high point in the calendar of Bank Muscat events, al Mazyona offers over RO 8 million in prize money, which is one of the biggest savings scheme prize money in Oman and the region.
The bank also extended support to a media training programme hosted by Omani Journalists Association in Salalah. Over 60 media representatives from across the Sultanate attended the programme held as part of the festival.
Bank Muscat is committed to making Salalah Tourism Festival a great success. As main sponsor of the annual celebrations, Bank Muscat aims to unite citizens, residents and visitors in sharing the good times and discovering the joy of being connected. The bank seeks to serve as a focal point in the preservation of Oman's rich heritage and culture, encouraging people to maintain a strong link to the glorious legacy, thereby reinforcing the Sultanate's distinct cultural character.
