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.
