The second edition of Build Your House (BYH) exhibition is set to take place from September 20 to 22 at the Qatar National Convention Centre with a record number of local and international exhibitors and potential visitors, organiser NeXTfairs has said.
Some 120 exhibitors participated in BYH 2020, attracted more than 8,600 visitors of whom 90% were Qataris, and hosted more than 30 workshops and seminars. This year, an estimated 10,000 people are expected to visit the three-day event – spread on a 10,000sq m area.
NeXTfairs added that BYH 2021 will feature a Technology Area, in addition to seminars, live demonstrations, and an awards ceremony. It also serves as a unique platform for local and international companies to showcase and promote their products and services.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the industry in Qatar, learn about new products, benefit from special offers and promotional packages, select qualified contractors and consultants and suppliers, identify the ongoing trends and anticipated growth, and knowledge sharing with experts.
“The second edition of Build Your House will build on the immense success of the inaugural edition, the first of its kind exhibition in Qatar that served as a conduit between various segments of the house building industry with Qatari nationals.
“BYH 2020 received the patronage of HE the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior and unwavering support from various Ministries and government bodies; exhibition space fully booked; both visitors and exhibitors registered high rates of satisfaction levels; an estimated value of deals worth QR400mn was generated,” the organiser said on Visit Qatar – the official social media account of Qatar Tourism.
The event, according to NeXTfairs, also provides visitors the details on key areas in constructing houses, from design to the “criteria for selecting the consultant and contractor”, among other information.
Besides giving advice on legal and financial matters, experts from different ministries, government organisations, and industries are also expected to share their knowledge on building, designing, and decorating homes during the seminars and workshops.
BYH 2021 will also highlight some of the market trends and topics such as colour and designs (nature-driven, modern, minimalistic, biophilic, and resimerical), as well as energy efficiency and sustainability.
