Project Qatar returns in May for its 11th edition
Project Qatar will be back from May 12th - May 15th 2014. Building on 10 years in Qatar, this event has grown exponentially in the region, both in terms of exhibitors and visitors. This year, it will be taking place at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC), a new venue.
Organised by IFP Qatar (International Fairs & Promotions), Project Qatar is one of the Middle East’s most largest exhibitions for construction, sustainability and building materials. Covering 27 pavilions spread across 41,500 sqm of indoor and outdoor exhibition space, the exhibition is getting ready to welcome more than 2,100 participating companies and guests from more than 50 countries.
Mr. V.S Narayanan, the managing director of Oriental Trading Company, a company that is participating in its 7th year at Project Qatar told, “As the Qatar construction industry continues to attract major investment opportunities, this renowned exhibition offers the best exposure in the region for discussing integral topics and solutions, meeting contacts and conducting business related to the sector.”
As commercial, residential and industrial infrastructure developments in Qatar increase in line with the requirements of delivering the 2030 Qatar National Vision and the 2022 FIFA World Cup, this year’s event will be held concurrently with two specialised exhibitions: Qatar Stone-Tech and Heavy Max, as well as hosting two specialised conferences organised by Advanced Conferences & Meetings; LightingTech Qatar and HVACTech Qatar, the inaugural events of the PQ Conferences Series. These additional events have expanded Project Qatar’s exhibition to showcase new products, technical equipment and technologies.
Project Qatar 2013 surpassed all expectations, including the previous 2012 edition, due to an overwhelming response from both exhibitors and visitors. Project Qatar 2013 hosted 2100 local and international exhibitors from 50 countries. The event featured more than 3000 brands and marked a 16 percent record increase in surface area, and 45 percent growth in international participation.
