More than 170 female entrepreneurs are participating in the ninth edition of the ‘Arabian Woman Exhibition’, which will run at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC) until November 8.
The event, which is being held under the sponsorship of the Qatari Businesswomen Forum, was inaugurated by Qatar Chamber board member Ibtihaj al-Ahmadani, who toured the 220 local, regional, and international stands showcasing the latest creations for the winter and fall season 2023.
During the event, al-Ahmadani, who was joined by Tamader al-Marri, director of Vogue Event Company, as well as several Qatari businesswomen and entrepreneurs, was briefed on the latest designs and products presented by Qatari and foreign designers in the fields of fashion, accessories, and women’s supplies.
Speaking at the exhibition, al-Ahmadani, who is also the chairperson of the Qatari Businesswomen Forum, emphasised the forum’s support for Qatari businesswomen and its aim to empower them and to promote their businesses, as well as bolster their contributions to the economic and commercial activities in the state.
Al-Ahmadani lauded the event’s growth in terms of the number of exhibitors, the exhibition space, and the evident development in innovation and design showcased in the products displayed in the event, whether in terms of fashion or accessories and various supplies that are of interest to Qatari women.
Meanwhile, al-Marri said the exhibition offers a good opportunity for visitors to learn about the most prominent designs created by Qatari designers, noting that the exhibition had achieved significant success in its previous editions.
She also emphasised that the ninth edition of the event is significantly unique regarding the exhibition area, which covers 10,000sq m, and the number of participating exhibitors.
Al-Marri said the exhibition would continue to support ambitious designers and entrepreneurs and enhance their roles in the national economy. She stressed that it is considered one of the most significant fairs held in the state, consistently drawing more 12,000 visitors in each edition. The event is an important platform for displaying designs and exchanging expertise, al-Marri noted.
She said the latest edition of the exhibition is expected to be noteworthy because of the participation of many prominent names in the field of high-end fashion and abayas, noting that it will also be comprehensive as it displays all the needs of Qatari women in terms of abayas and women’s accessories. Al-Marri added that the exhibition, which will be open from 10am to 10pm daily, is expected to witness a great turnout this year due to the variety of products it offers.
