June 2017

Qatar’s largest construction event concluded on a high note last month with its business-to-business (B2B) matchmaking platform having successfully facilitated more than 230 meetings between the region’s major firms and the show’s visitors.

Project Qatar 2017, which was held at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center last month (May 8 to 11), registered major participation from regional and global construction companies. 

The 14th edition of the trade exhibition for construction technology, building materials, equipment and environmental technology was held the patronage of Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al-Thani, the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior of Qatar.

The mega-event also hosted several activities including a workshop series, a live demo theatre and a two-day Accessible Qatar Conference, which aimed to raise awareness about accessibility, encourage knowledge sharing, and influence project developers to make existing and future venues accessible for those with physical challenges. Other concurrent exhibitions held during the event included Qatar StoneTech and Heavy Max 2017. 

George Ayache, general manager of the organiser IFP Qatar, said: “Project Qatar 2017 witnessed another great edition and an ever-growing participation from the global and regional construction sectors. Top-quality international manufacturers, distributors and suppliers are seeing the value of engaging with local market decision-makers through Project Qatar, making it their ideal venue to meet face-to-face and foster business relationship with their counterparts in the country. 

Project Qatar 2017 showcased about 516 exhibitors and official pavilions from a total of 33 countries.
