Preparations are in full swing for Project Qatar 2017, the 14th edition of the international trade exhibition for construction technology, building materials, equipment and environmental technology, set to take place this month (May 8 to 11) at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre.

A total of 516 exhibitors from 33 countries are looking to leverage the future developments of Qatar’s multi-billion-dollar construction sector. More than 16,000 visitors from across the globe are expected to gather at the event that will showcase the latest equipment and services from some of the world’s leading construction companies.

George Ayache, general manager, at IFP Qatar, the event organiser, said: “Project Qatar is once again leading the construction sector in building on opportunities for expanding the country’s prospects. The construction industry plays a very important role and is consistent with Qatar’s vision of becoming a leading hub in the region for world events, including the Fifa World Cup 2022.”

Project Qatar will also hold a series of expert-led workshops on key issues within the construction sector. In addition, the event will also be offering other activities like a Live Demo Theatre, the Accessible Qatar Conference and a B2B matchmaking event.

Some of the event’s main sponsors and partners include the Qatar Tourism Authority as Strategic Partner; Al Sraiya Group and Palmera as Platinum sponsors; QD-CPC Industries, a subsidiary of QDSBG as Gold sponsors; and Ali Abdul Sattar Business Group, Bitumode Qatar Waterproofing Factory, and Qatar uPVC as Silver sponsors.
