Qatar is the country with the highest income per capita, globally, and Doha has become a focal point in the Middle East, landing the winning bid for the 2022 World Cup. The city, which is a predominantly corporate destination (65 per cent) is undergoing a transformation in the hospitality sector with new hotels opening on a monthly basis (the current pipeline expects to increase the hotel supply by 77 per cent, dominated by luxury upper upscale and upscale properties). Significant infrastructural and real estate projects in Qatar will be completed during the coming decade, driving the growth of demand for transient accommodation in Doha.
