Frankfurt, May 27, 2009
Qatar Tourism & Exhibitions Authority (QTEA) is promoting Qatar as a top destination for conferences and events at a major meetings exhibition being held in Frankfurt, Germany.
QTEA is participating as an exhibitor in the International Meetings Exhibition (Imex), one of the biggest worldwide exhibitions for meetings and incentive travel from May 25 to May 28.
QTEA will also endorse Qatar’s leadership in innovative education and research as a focus sector.
By promoting Qatar to buyers from the meetings, incentive, conferences and exhibitions sector, QTEA will target important and influential conference and exhibitions organisers, and travel agents.
Qatar has emerged on the world stage as a country that is a leader in progression and innovation and is recognised as a quality destination for meetings and events.
According to the Middle East Meetings Industry research report 2009, Qatar ranked very high as a destination for services, quality and range of cultural activities.
“Thanks to the Qatari culture of sharing knowledge, Qatar has developed into a rising quality destination, where visitors can enjoy key conferences and events in strategic fields such as oil and gas, finance, medical research, information technology, along with high-end leisure and cultural landmarks,” said Ahmed Al Nuaimi, chairman of QTEA.
Staged annually in Frankfurt, the Imex is a three day B2B event presenting a diverse range of destinations, products and services from 3,500 organisations from Europe and around the world.
The event brings together meetings and incentives professionals with venues, hotels, destinations and suppliers. – TradeArabia News Service
