Project Qatar to feature over 500 exhibitors
The event, which is set to take place from 8 to May 11 at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center, will be used as a platform for participants to explore the future developments of Qatar’s multi-billion-dollar construction sector
More than 500 exhibitors from 33 countries are expected to be in attendance at the 14th edition of the International Trade Exhibition for Construction Technology, Building Materials, Equipment and Environmental Technology (Project Qatar).
The event, which is set to take place from 8 to May 11 at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center, will be used as a platform for participants to explore the future developments of Qatar’s multi-billion-dollar construction sector.
The participants will be supported by their embassies in Qatar, including France, Italy, Germany, Belgium, China, Turkey, Kuwait, and Pakistan, Qatar News Agency reported.
George Ayache, general manager of IFP Qatar, the organisers of the event, said that the exhibition is likely to attract more than 16,000 visitors worldwide. These visitors, he added, will have access to workshops on key issues within the construction sector.
Ayache also noted that there is a growing need to offer a dedicated platform for companies of all sizes to build business relations and secure major deals, in light of the business networking needed in order to optimise the capabilities of the global construction sector.
He further noted that the construction industry is playing an important role in achieving infrastructure development and, thereby, attracting foreign direct investments into the country. This is said to be consistent with Qatar’s vision of becoming a leading hub in the region for world events, including the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Included in the topics that will be covered in the workshops are Cooperating to Advance Construction Codes in the Gulf Region; Overview of the International Green Construction Code; Conflict Avoidance: The Alternative to Dispute Resolution; Design of Quality Control Systems to Improve the Quality of Concrete Construction in Complex Infrastructure Projects; and Identification and Mitigation of Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR) in Concrete Structures.
