IBQ backs top Qatar projects summit
Doha, February 2, 2012
The International Bank of Qatar (IBQ), a leading commercial institution, will be a platinum sponsor and key speaker at an upcoming major summit in Doha, which will discuss Qatar’s mega projects in the pipeline.
Organised by Meed, Qatar Projects 2012 will take place from February 5 to 8 at Grand Hyatt Hotel.
This year’s event is expected to gather more than 600 participants. A host of distinguished government and business figures will discuss the top projects in Qatar, including the Qatar Railway Project, Doha New Port and Doha New Airport, among others.
The programme will also include an in-depth analysis and data on Qatar’s project market and up-to-date information on the business and investment environment.
George Nasra, managing director of IBQ said: “We’re happy to be part of the Qatar Projects 2012 conference as we firmly believe that it is one of the key platforms for business dialogue which helps pave the way for interesting and significant cross-industry opportunities. Qatar is slated for a huge projects pipeline and will be a priority on the business agenda for many organisations.”
“This is the fourth year we participate at the conference and we look forward to the enlightening discussions which will take place during the different panel sessions. We also see this conference as an excellent networking opportunity giving participants the opportunity to meet key Qatari stakeholders, government officials, developers, clients and investors,” Nasra added.
Edmund O’Sullivan, chairman of Meed said: “The scale of opportunities is unprecedented, and Qatar Projects 2012 will also provide exclusive insight into the country’s long-term blueprint for economic success as part of Qatar Vision 2030, with anticipated investment of up to $100 billion. This has the potential to catapult the country to the top of the list as the world’s largest projects markets on a per capita basis.”
As part of the conference activities, IBQ will be hosting an exclusive Networking Dinner which will include the announcement of the winner of Meed’s inaugural “Qatar Projects Leadership Award”. – TradeArabia News Service
