Project Qatar 2014 will kick-off for the eleventh year tomorrow, with Prime Minister H.E. Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Bin Khalifa Al Thani set to open the event.
The four-day event will be held at the Qatar National Convention Centre and will feature over 2,100 exhibitors and 24 international pavilions, with an anticipated 25,000+ professional visitors from 50 countries.
There will be a number of newcomers at the event this year, including exhibitors from Indonesia, Palestine, and Romania.
“Every year, the Project Qatar audience becomes more diverse with practitioners from all construction disciplines coming from all over the world,” said Rawad Sleem, Project Manager of Project Qatar.
“The Qatar construction market is at the heart of the global construction industry with more than $200bn in the pipeline for infrastructure ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
“As a natural gateway to the GCC countries, this presents significant opportunity for the local, regional and international markets to conduct business across a variety of sectors.”
George Ayache, General Manager of IFP Qatar and Organizer of Project Qatar, said: “This is our 11th year of Project Qatar and we have invested significantly this year in understanding and developing an event that will provide added value for our exhibitors and visitors. Project Qatar 2014 will mark a significant evolution in terms of added value content, demonstrations and the diversity of the sectors showcased by the exhibitors. We wish everyone participating in this year’s event a successful and prosperous experience.”
