32,000 visi­tors walked these halls at this pres­ti­gious event, amongst them key buy­ers and in­dus­try lead­ers in the con­struc­tion sec­tor. This event suc­cess­fully fa­cil­i­tated net­work­ing be­tween visi­tors and in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als namely lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers and sup­pli­ers of con­struc­tion and build­ing ma­te­ri­als, heavy ma­chin­ery, stone, wood­work, and other con­struc­tion ma­te­ri­als.


In 2015, the B2B Match­mak­ing Plat­form was in­tro­duced at Pro­ject Qatar with the in­ten­tion of match­ing pro­fes­sion­als and ex­hibitors that have a mu­tual in­ter­est in cer­tain prod­ucts and have a sim­i­lar work pro­file. Dur­ing the event, the show suc­cess­fully hosted 830 pre-ar­ranged busi­ness meet­ings. By reg­is­ter­ing online, visi­tors were able to plan their en­tire visit and max­imise the time spent at the event.

Fur­ther­more, both visi­tors and ex­hibitors had ac­cess to all fea­tures of the show through the re­cently im­proved PQ 2015 Mo­bile Ap­pli­ca­tion. The ap­pli­ca­tion’s pur­pose is to pro­vide the fol­low­ing to the visi­tors and ex­hibitors: event in­for­ma­tion, ex­hibitors list, lo­ca­tion and venue map, so­cial media, floor plan, spon­sors list, and much more. This only served to en­hance the ex­pe­ri­ence sig­nif­i­cantly.

The event had also a spe­cial touch that had never been seen be­fore at Pro­ject Qatar, Work­shop Se­ries. IFP Qatar LLC col­lab­o­rated with the Qatar Cham­ber of Com­merce to launch the work­shop se­ries that in­cluded 8 suc­cess­ful work­shops, which ed­u­cated the at­ten­dees about the con­struc­tion in­dus­try. Ar­eas of fo­cus of the work­shops were man­u­fac­tur­ing in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in Qatar and work­ers’ wel­fare is­sues that con­struc­tion com­pa­nies are fac­ing.

In or­der to in­tro­duce the in­ter­na­tional ex­hibitors to the ac­tiv­i­ties of the bustling con­struc­tion sec­tor in Qatar, IFP Qatar or­gan­ised pre­sen­ta­tions and took the ex­hibitors to visit three mega con­struc­tion sites around the coun­try: the New Port Pro­ject, the Mall of Qatar, and Lu­sail City.

Pro­ject Qatar con­tin­ues to of­fer an in-depth in­sight into Qatar’s con­struc­tion in­dus­try and con­nect the right peo­ple to fa­cil­i­tate busi­ness, progress, and work­ing re­la­tion­ships.
