The second edition of the Qatar Human Resource (HR) Conference is set to take place on June 1 in Doha, marking the start of a series of events leading up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in the country, according to Visit Qatar website.
Themed Excellence in Human Capital Management, the conference will witness executives from the HR, recruitment, education, and training sectors presenting “key insights and invaluable business experience with other industries and businesses to help them navigate uncertainties and be more agile”.
While 2020-2021 has been a turbulent period for various sectors especially in managing of human resources, the event organiser Nextfairs noted that these industries still face with new set of challenges as they recover from the impact of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Many businesses aim to implement “new strategic initiatives towards transforming the working environment and maintaining a balance between traditional and modern approach”.
On June 3, a Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra (QPO) concert titled The Best of Franz Liszt will serenade the audience at Katara – the Cultural Village Opera House from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.
Performers include Alastair Willis (conductor) and Janos Balazs (piano).
“The concert will feature Piano Concerto No. 1, a piece so magnificent that it took Liszt over 25 years to complete, as well as Les Préludes, the best known of Liszt’s symphonic poems,” the organisers said. “This concert is for piano enthusiasts as Liszt was considered the greatest piano virtuoso of his time.”
“János Balázs will perform solo piano and Alastair Willis will conduct,” the organisers added.
Two events will be taking place from June 6-9 at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC): “Project Qatar 2022” and “Hospitality Qatar 2022”.
Project Qatar 2022, under the patronage of HE the Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz al-Thani, returns for its 18th edition and is expected to attract leading brands from around the globe.
It “connects industry professionals to high-ranking decision makers in Qatar, making way for lucrative partnerships and agreements”.
Hospitality Qatar, the country’s exclusive and longest-running international hospitality and Horeca trade show, will further boost and provide an array of opportunities for the sector.
“As 2022 is set to be a remarkable year in Qatar, the hospitality sector in the country is bound to witness a surge in demand fueled by initiatives taken by the government and a line-up of global and local events,” the organisers said. “Sports events, staycation demand, cruise business, travelers from GCC countries, exhibitions, food festivals, and other such events will drive the growth of Qatar’s hospitality sector in 2022 to unprecedented levels.”
“The hotels market’s supply alone is set to exceed 44,000 rooms by the end of 2022, almost a 50% growth from the current supply of 30,000 rooms, offering opportunities unmatched by any other market in the world,” they added.
The QPO, in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture’s Music Affairs Centre, returns on June 9 at the Katara – the Cultural Village Opera House for the “Classics of the Golden Age” concert, between 7.30pm and 9.30pm.
