The Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) is heading to Frankfurt for The Worldwide Exhibition for Incentive Travel, Meetings and Events (IMEX) which will be held from 21st to 23rd May at Exhibition Hall 8, Messe Frankfurt.
The show presents a worldwide exhibition for incentive travel, meetings and events, uniting exhibitors and buyers under one roof.
QTA will be showcasing Qatar’s credentials as a leading destination in the Gulf region for meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE). It offers travellers a truly business-oriented location, combined with an exciting mix of leisure activities and quality hotels. In addition to the existing and spacious Doha Exhibition Centre, and The Qatar National Convention Centre in Doha’s Education City, which play host to over 60 major conferences per year, a new conference centre is scheduled to open in 2014.
With its infrastructure and hotel offering rapidly developing with 85,000 hotel rooms set to be available in time for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Qatar is asserting its position in the Middle East. Both leisure and business travellers are greeted by a thriving and diverse destination combining both the flourishing modern and the authentic cultural experiences.
The construction of conference centres coupled with the high quality and range of accommodation makes Qatar an ideal destination to hold conferences and meetings. The excellent air links to Qatar from around the world with Qatar Airways also ensures that it is convenient to the business traveller.
Qatar is also a great choice for incentive programs with its eclectic choice of activities available, ranging from browsing the Souq Waqif to adrenaline pumping desert activities.
IMEX is attended by over 9,000 visitors and features approximately 3,500 exhibitors from 157 countries, spread across 30,223 square metres of exhibition space.
