The 11th edition of Qatar International Agricultural Exhibition (AgriteQ) is set to take place from February 21 to 27 at the Expo 2023 Doha, at Al Bidda Park, bringing together agricultural professionals and experts from different parts of the world.
The event, organised by the Ministry of Municipality in collaboration with public and private institutions, provides an opportunity for participants and visitors to explore the latest advancements in the field.
According to the organisers, AgriteQ 2024 offers an array of benefits for participants, including workers and specialists in the agricultural domains. It allows them to showcase their products, machinery, and technologies to a diverse audience, engage with key stakeholders to expand their market reach, forge partnerships with distributors and potential buyers, elevate brand visibility, glean insights into Qatar’s agricultural landscape, and exchange knowledge with peers on both local and global fronts.
AgriteQ 2024 exhibitors will represent a wide variety of sectors, including agribusiness technologies, farm management systems, animal feeds, crop protection, transportation, and more.
Organisers noted that visitors would comprise various stakeholders such as agricultural organisations, governmental bodies, contractors, farmers, food product traders, and industry professionals, among others. They will have a chance to discover an extensive range of specialty products, agro-technologies, and equipment while facilitating networking opportunities with influential figures from the public and private sectors. AgriteQ, established as a cornerstone of Qatar’s National Food Security Strategy, evolved into a key platform for fostering dialogue, showcasing innovations, and driving progress towards sustainable agricultural practices.
The latest edition of AgriteQ will focus on showcasing the latest agricultural technologies, equipment, and related products, facilitating meaningful interactions between attendees and key decision-makers to uncover innovative practices and strategies. The previous edition of AgriteQ witnessed remarkable growth, with 675 exhibitors from 55 countries and more than 30,000 visitors converging at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre.
Local participation surged by 80% compared to previous years, underscoring AgriteQ’s growing significance within Qatar’s agricultural landscape. A total of 120 tonnes of packaged dates were also presented to Katrina Gallouzi, the deputy director of the World Food Programme (WFP) Office and the programme representative in the GCC, at Agriteq 2023.
This initiative reflects Qatar’s commitment to supporting WFP operations in various nations. This donation highlighted Qatar’s collaborative approach with WFP, a primary UN agency dedicated to humanitarian and international endeavours. It delivers food aid to individuals affected by conflicts or crises, and fosters transformative change through sustainable development initiatives, impacting millions of lives.
