Project Qatar and Hospitality Qatar have now been combined into one major expo that will set the stage for multiple opportunities, from June 6 to 9, 2022 at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre.
The event will welcome more than 300 exhibiting companies, distributed among 180 international firms from 30 different countries, seven of which will participate in official national pavilions, along with 120 Qatari companies from major government and semi-governmental agencies and prominent private sector entities.
Project Qatar, now in its 18th year, is the country's first and oldest business fair for construction and related industries. The exhibition offers access to the growing Qatari construction market, as well as new business prospects with companies of all sizes, making it an unparalleled platform for growth and development.
"By combining the two exhibitions, we aim to optimise space and welcome the public through one major event, as we are also investing the state’s major resources into making the most anticipated event in the world, the FIFA World Cup 2022, a success. As a result, combining the two strongest exhibitions in the local market before the commencement of the World Cup represents a good period for entities and exhibitors to seize the opportunities and build alliances and commercial partnerships in the construction and hospitality sectors at the same time,” said Haidar Mshaimesh, general manager of IFP Qatar.
Hospitality Qatar, now in its seventh edition this year, is the only trade fair in Qatar for the hospitality and HORECA sectors and is considered the most prominent and oldest exhibition directed towards the local, regional, and international companies working in the tourism and hospitality sector.
Saoud al-Tamimi, manager of Roads Projects Department from the Public Works Authority, the strategic partner of the exhibition, said it is participating for the sixth consecutive time in Project Qatar, through which it will showcase its achievements in major infrastructure projects.
This year's participation represents an exceptional opportunity to highlight the authority's role and contributions over the past years in preparing the necessary infrastructure to host the FIFA World Cup 2022, he said.
Suhail Industrial Holding Group, the largest industrial company in the Qatari private sector, is an industrial partner for the first time in the exhibition.
"The company is moving forward at a rapid pace, backed by the state's support for the industrial sector, as it strives towards self-sufficiency to meet the needs of government entities and the Qatari market. Suhail Holding Group is moving towards new possibilities of industrial production based on the recycling of metals, reviving resourceful wealth created by the state's surge in construction and infrastructure projects, and adequately leveraging the wastes of metal and steel to produce and supply all the metal and plastic products it requires, some of which were never produced in Qatar before," said Mohamed al-Jaja, director of sales and marketing at Suhail Industrial Holding Group.
QTerminals is attending Project Qatar for the third consecutive year, building on its successful participation in the event since its first appearance in 2019.
