Our Story

Afrah (joy) and Amal (hope) are two synonyms of optimism and love for life. Our concerted efforts to launch the company of "Takatof" for conference and events management in April 2012 was a major milestone as it has managed in a short period to prove itself as key developing establishment in this field despite hectic competition and rapid developments witnessed in this industry in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

The two ladies of Afrah Ajaj, the GM Business Development and Amal Janahi, the Managing Director of Takatof have greatly benefited from their previous work and growing experience in the field of training in making Takatof a specialized establishment in conference & events management in addition to human resources & knowledge, a promising market that faces high demand in the Kingdom of Bahrain with its all segments of the society, and is capable of promoting the national economy in general.

The pioneering status of Takatof and its success in attracting a large number of clients in a short period is a fruitful outcome of its high quality and distinguished products. The company exerts its utmost efforts to provide its clients with superior services. Those who have the opportunity to attend an event managed by Takatof can feel it themselves from the moment of registration at the reception to the minutest details and arrangements made by the work team and the unique style of treatment offered at the event. Even when you have your lunch meal and after you go back to the hall you certainly find a Takatof team member giving you a perfumed handkerchief to refresh your mind and body again.

Takatof is highly praised and recognized by its clients, the matter which has enabled it to build close fruitful relationships with them, and this relationship has witnessed ongoing growth over the years. Takatof has managed to form a large base of respected clients including the government and private sectors and has managed in a short time to take up the challenge of organizing a series of conferences and workshops hosted in the Kingdom of Bahrain, including the Social Media Pioneers Forum in its two editions 2012 and 2013 under the patronage of the Minister of State for Communications Affairs HE Shaikh Fawaz bin Mohamed Al-Khalifa, and the 29th Annual Award Ceremony of Outstanding Employees & Establishments in the non-government sector, which was held under the royal patronage of HM King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa, as well as the Award Ceremony of Distinguished Establishments held under the patronage of the Minister of Labor HE Jameel bin Humaidan, and many others.

The training market in which we operate is witnessing rapid developments which is reflected positively on the work team of Takatof. We are keen on developing the community through the selection of quality events, conferences and workshops which contribute to achieving the aspired growth and progress of Bahrain. Meanwhile, we exert unremitting efforts in further upgrading our products towards achieving our ultimate goals of providing unique and unmatched services in compliance with highest global standards.
