German buyers invited to Visit Qatar at IMEX Frankfurt

Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) will be exhibiting alongside 15 partners at IMEX Frankfurt this week, showcasing a full range of hotels, DMCs, event management companies, and state-of-the-art venues, including Qatar National Convention Centre and the recently opened Doha Exhibition and Convention Center.

QTA will be hosting a buyers’ breakfast at the global event, in advance of a familiarisation trip to Qatar in the fall of 2016. Corporate meetings and conference organisers, as well as representatives of associations will be invited to visit the country’s world-class venues and facilities, and attend match-making sessions with the relevant local industry representatives.

Qatar is a rapidly growing hub for education, sport, research, and healthcare, as well as oil&gas. With Qatar Foundation’s Education City hosting branch campuses of 8 international universities, and the cutting-edge Qatar Science&Technology Park, the country offers eye-opening experiences for conference attendees of any background, both inside and beyond the walls of its venues.

Business visitors to Qatar also benefit from unique cultural experiences, courtesy of landmarks such as the Museum of Islamic Art, which houses collections of masterpieces spanning 1,400 years of history.

In 2015, nearly 40,000 people from Germany visited Qatar. The visits come as Qatar steps up efforts to target German-speaking European markets, setting up a representative office in Berlin in early 2015.

A substantial number of visitors to Qatar are business tourists, attending a vast spectrum of events staged annually. Qatar’s tourism strategy seeks to triple the number of business events tourists by 2030, contributing at least half of the country’s revenue from tourism spending. In November 2015 QTA launched the Qatar Business Events brand, consolidating the image and promotional efforts of stakeholders in Qatar’s business events sector.
