QNCC holds Europe road show
Doha, October 30, 2008
As part of the marketing promotion for Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC), a road show was held in Europe which was attended by more than 80 key decision makers from prominent international associations and institutes.
Paul D’Arcy, general manager of QNCC, said there was strong interest in the Middle East and in particular Doha, as a future destination for international associations across a range of fields including telecommunications, medical research, dentistry, petrochemicals, education, sport and transport.
'During the week long activities held in Geneva, Paris, Brussels and London, we have indentified an additional 49 conventions with the potential to attract more than 131,000 attendees from around the world to Doha. This would equate to an estimated $78 million in delegate expenditure to the city.'
'Our sales team will now be following up with Doha’s finest scientists, specialists and industry experts to discuss how we can assist in attracting these lucrative events to Qatar,' added Mr D’Arcy.
The European Roadshow was held in conjunction with the other five ‘sister’ convention centres managed by international venue management specialist, AEG Ogden in Australia, Malaysia and India.
Billed as one of the Middle East’s largest convention and exhibition centres, QNCC will feature 40,000sqm of exhibition space, a multi-purpose hall for 4,000 seated theatre style, a 2,300-seat lyric style three tiered auditoria, 52 flexible meeting rooms to accommodate a wide range of events plus banquet seating for 4,000.-TradeArabia News Service
