Fast-developing countries provide a plethora of opportunities for exhibition organisers. Fast-developing countries with a vision, offer a destination of choice.

Our country’s vision to be a place that welcomes the world, providing seamless and curated experiences to visitors and exhibitors, has seen it top the Middle East in various rankings. Thanks to a visa policy that allows more than 80 nationalities to enter visa free, the UNWTO has ranked Qatar the most open country in the region. Our hospitality sector is also ranked first in the Middle East, according to the 2018 Olery Guest Experience in the Middle East Report.

Beyond turning our tradition of hospitality into policies, we have woven our care for every visitor’s and every exhibitor’s experience into all our venues. Qatar’s main conference and exhibition venues boast a combined capacity of 70,000 square metres. Both offer exhibition organisers state-of-the-art facilities and great flexibility to tailor the venue to their needs and save on set-up costs.

All this, combined with our country’s cultural heritage and carefully preserved natural gems, offer sublime experiences beyond the event venue.

Major developments, from building cutting-edge venues to hosting the FIFA World Cup 2022, are putting Qatar in the global spotlight and piquing the interest of exhibition organisers.

That is why the Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC) has developed a range of products and incentives for the MICE industry that are globally competitive and deliver tools to the hands of International Exhibition Organizers.

QNTC’s range of products and incentives cater to:

• Trade Exhibitions
• Trade Exhibitions with a Conference
• Hosted Buyers Program
• Corporate Meetings & Incentives
• Congresses & Conventions
