The pavilions offer brands and companies from the same national markets the opportunity to jointly introduce their services and products to the Qatari market.
Speaking on behalf of the event organisers, IFP Qatar, Haidar Mshaimesh, acting general manager said, “The international pavilions offer a central showcase for global and local companies to maximise exposure for their services, products, expertise, and technology, and it is also easier for buyers to locate key suppliers. The pavilions have long been one of the biggest contributors to the success of Project Qatar, and the increase in the number of international pavilions this year certainly promises a positive impact on Qatar’s construction sector.”
