Along with Project Qatar 2016, IFP Qatar is also organizing two concurrent events which took place over the past three days, and are still taking place today. These two major events include “Qatar Stone Tech 2016,” the 5th International Stone and Stone Technology Show, and “Heavy Max 2016,” the 13th International Exhibition for Heavy Machinery. Given the booming of the construction industry in Qatar, these two conferences represent the ideal platforms for traders and procurement managers to have a close-up look at all the new specialized technologies necessary for the execution of all the major projects.
Due to the large number of international exhibitors and visitors, Project Qatar has once again proved this year its role as the right destination for industry leaders, professionals and decision makers to network and exchange their knowledge in the Qatari market, one of the most vibrant economies worldwide.
