Qatar Olympic Committee selects IET: Savoy Place as Games venue

The Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) today announced that the Institution of Engineering and Technology at Savoy Place is to be its official Olympic House for the duration of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Savoy Place was selected for its central location by the River Thames and parallel to The Strand.

Bayt Qatar [meaning House of Qatar] will offer members of the QOC, its stakeholders and partners, athletes, media and Olympic Family guests a convenient venue throughout the London 2012 Olympic Games where they can experience unique Qatari hospitality.

Bayt Qatar will showcase the works and initiatives of a selection of Qatari organisations that represent contributions towards Qatar’s National Vision 2030.

It will also play host to a series of events, exhibitions, film screenings and public figures who have played an important role in Qatar’s progress, both on the sporting and wider cultural, educational and business fronts.
