P2BK 2013 is just around the corner and yesterday I got to have a first look at the huge, huge project. This year’s is nothing like the past years. The people behind the expo truly set some high standards to be followed. Whether with their creativity or execution.

This year a whole village was built from scratch over an area of 20,000 m2. The village houses booths for local small businesses, cafes and fast food restaurants, sand sculptures, and endless things to see.

P2BK will launch this Wednesday 6 Mar 2013 from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm at Mishref Fairgrounds, behind hall 4.

With no further ado, here are the photos.

The vintage style booths. This area reminds me so much of Mubarakiya.

Yup. That is in fact.. The one and only Darth Vader along with the stormtroopers, dancing Kuwaiti style, with their light sabers.

And that is one sentence I never thought I’d say.

Dhari Al-Wazzan, the owner of P2BK, gave the bloggers a tour around the project and explained everything we needed to know.

This area is where 10 fast food restaurants will be. Along with a stage to showcase local talents, surrounded by an artificial lake and a boom (old ship).

The sand village is the biggest in the middle east. 9 American artists sculpted Kuwait’s most popular landmarks in sand. Great great work.
