The Peninsula Qatar, 11 September 2017

Qatar’s hospitality segment continues to witness unprecedented growth as industry experts have forecast hospitality revenues to peak at $1.6bn in the next three years. A recent report from leading investment bank, Alpen Capital, has forecast an annual 10 percent growth over the next three years, which will be largely driven by tourism-related developments, including the country’s preparations to host the FIFA World Cup in 2022.
 
Looking to play a part in the expected growth surge of the segment, Hospitality Qatar, the country’s premier International Hospitality and Hotel/Restaurant/Café (HORECA) Trade Show, is looking to leverage highly-attractive and potential opportunities across the country’s equally-booming hotel supply, design and investment segments. This year’s edition of the show, which will be held from November 7 to 9 at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC), aims at providing participants with a strategic platform to showcase latest hospitality design and supply-related products; interact and network with industry professionals and stakeholders, and explore lucrative business opportunities. Hospitality Qatar 2017 is expected to draw in huge participation from the region’s top hospitality investors, hoteliers, restaurateurs, and café operators and suppliers.
 
Karim Raffoul, Project Manager, Hospitality Qatar 2017, said, “The country’s unceasing efforts to position itself as a highly-preferred tourism destination have manifested in an 11.5 percent growth over the last five years, dubbing Qatar as one of the fastest growing destinations in the Middle East in terms of visitor arrivals. The Qatari government’s latest move to introduce free multiple-entry visa upon arrival for 80 nationalities is the latest example of its strong commitment to maintaining that growth through strategic initiatives and programs.”
 
Hospitality Qatar 2017 will be featuring a vibrant exhibition zone, a highly-targeted B2B program, educational workshops and simultaneous events and activities, allowing visitors and participants to experience a 360-degree coverage of all aspects of the HORECA, F&B and hospitality investment markets. The exciting three-day show will be composed of three zones; Food & Beverage, Supply & Design, and Hotel & Franchise Investment. Exciting events to look out for include the Salon Culinaire, a Live Cooking Competition and a Mocktail Competition.
 
This year, Hospitality Qatar is also introducing a new addition for the first time: HQ – Food Qatar. The platform is especially designed to serve Qatar’s food and catering industry by providing a platform for local, regional, and international food producers and suppliers to meet with eager local buyers.
 
“We remain highly confident that this year’s edition of the show will continue to live up to its name of being the most ideal platform for hospitality professionals, hotel and franchise investors to throw the spotlight on their products and services. This is a great opportunity for suppliers and producers to meet new potential customers and investors from the entire region,”.
