C&IT, in partnership with the Qatar Tourism Authority recently presented Complete Qatar: A Destination Experience. This four-day business and familiarisation trip took place from 29 October to 2 November 2016 and combined inspiring content sessions, 1-2-1 meetings with key suppliers and visits to key attractions in the city of Doha.
Located in the heart of the Middle East and with an ambitious vision for its continued development, Qatar has been ranked by the World Economic Forum as the most competitive economy in the MENA region.
It is little wonder that event planners for leading associations, corporations and agencies are flocking to Qatar to see what it has to offer.
Qatar boasts excellent facilities, modern infrastructure and a mix of local and cosmopolitan culture and has rapidly become the destination of choice for regional and global conferences and meetings in international diplomacy, healthcare, finance and economics, energy, media and sports.
Its central location at the crossroads of Asia, Europe and Africa means that direct flights link Doha to cities across the world.
The event was designed to boost delegate's knowledge of Qatar and what it has to offer, ignite your creative spark and introduce them to potential business partners to help them break into Qatar.
