The ‘Build Your House’ (BYH) 2021 is expected to attract deals worth more than QR400mn from September 20 to 22 at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC).
BYH 2021 would gather around 150 companies specialising in various services in the fields of contracting, architecture, and interior design, said Rawad Sleem, co-founder and general manager of NeXTfairs for Exhibitions and Conferences during a press conference Monday.
“We are expecting the exhibition to attract QR400mn worth of deals during the event as diversified entities would participate, including government, local, and international companies specialised in various sectors,” Sleem said.

The second edition of BYH would include the latest technologies and sustainable materials in the fields of contracting, architecture, and interior design, especially for clients who plan to create or add new designs and features to their houses or real estate projects.
BYH 2021 would also provide an opportunity to discover hundreds of smart and modern options that are both cost-effective and of great quality for designing, building, renovating, maintaining, and developing houses.
“The exhibition has also become an important platform that connects visitors with contractors and consultants to enable them to determine their options and make decisions related to the construction process,” Sleem said.
The event would include workshops and panel discussions that would bring together a host of experts to help visitors plan, procure, design, and build homes fit for the 21st century with a sustainable future and smart home solutions. It would introduce visitors to the various procedures and stages of building their houses, including how to get the necessary licenses for construction, the required documents, and all the information about the space standards for building a house, in addition to the state’s role in distributing lands over to citizens.
Sleem said a conference titled ‘Knowledge and Technology Area’ will feature 40 speakers discussing the latest trends in the industry and sharing their insights on various topics: designing furniture, eco-friendly interior design, infrastructure, and engineering.
During the press conference, Sleem was joined by Mohamed Hasan al-Naimi, Director of Technical Affairs Department in Doha Municipality, Ministry of Municipality and Environment; engineer Jarallah Mohamed al-Marri, Assistant Director of Building Projects, Ashghal; Mohamed Ali al-Muhannadi, Director of Public Relations and Communications, Kahramaa; lieutenant-colonel Jaber Mohamed al-Marri, head, Preventive Education Department, Civil Defence; Omar Halawa, Business Development Manager, Tadmur Trading; Emad Makarem, general manager Al Mana Maples; Shovan Das, general manager, Jotun Paints Qatar; and engineer Hamdi Mohamed Abdelatif, Technical Department Manager, Coolex Al Jaber.
