Hos­pi­tal­ity Qatar 2016, the 360o Hos­pi­tal­ity and HORECA show, was of­fi­cially launched to­day dur­ing a con­fer­ence held at the In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal Doha – The City.

The show, or­ga­nized by IFP Qatar, is li­censed by the Qatar Tourism Au­thor­ity (QTA). Un­der the pa­tron­age of HE Sheikh Ahmed Bin Jas­sim Al Thani, Min­is­ter of Econ­omy and Com­merce, Hos­pi­tal­ity Qatar will be held from Oc­to­ber, 18-20, 2016 at the Doha Ex­hi­bi­tion and Con­ven­tion Cen­ter (DECC). The ex­hi­bi­tion, wel­com­ing five na­tional pavil­ions, will bring thou­sands of visi­tors from around the globe to meet more than 132 ex­hibitors from 10 coun­tries. The event will pro­vide a pro­gres­sive plat­form for hos­pi­tal­ity, ho­tel, restau­rant, and cafes op­er­a­tors to show­case their lat­est prod­ucts and build new busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties. Com­ment­ing on the show, Ge­orge Ay­ache, IFP Qatar's Gen­eral Man­ager, stated: "Qatar's in­vest­ment in the hos­pi­tal­ity sec­tor is clearly vis­i­ble with nearly 105 up­com­ing ho­tels and ap­prox­i­mately 21,000 rooms at var­i­ous stages of con­struc­tion, and more than $40 bil­lion to be in­vested in the hos­pi­tal­ity sec­tor over the up­com­ing 15 years. Our show rep­re­sents the finest op­por­tu­nity for buy­ers and sell­ers to meet and net­work. We have even cre­ated our very own Busi­ness-to-Busi­ness match­mak­ing plat­form to fur­ther de­velop this ex­change plat­form," added Ay­ache.

Speak­ing about their par­tic­i­pa­tion at Hos­pi­tal­ity Qatar 2016, Carla Ghaleb, Coun­try Man­ager, Boecker Pub­lic Safety LLC, stated: "As Qatar is wit­ness­ing sub­stan­tial growth in the hos­pi­tal­ity sec­tor, we are de­lighted to con­trib­ute to this growth through our yearly strate­gic part­ner­ship with Hos­pi­tal­ity Qatar as of­fi­cial as­so­ci­ate and Hy­giene Spon­sor. Fad­hel bin Khal­ifa, Pur­chas­ing Man­ager of Haidari Trad­ing Com­pany, re­marked: "We have a fleet of 35 fully re­frig­er­ated ve­hi­cles de­liv­er­ing to ho­tels, restau­rants, and ca­ter­ing com­pa­nies ev­ery day across Qatar. Hos­pi­tal­ity Qatar helps us meet the key buy­ers across Qatar and en­ables us to con­tinue to grow our busi­ness."
