DOHA, May 22, 2018

A total of 60 start-up projects took part at the “Night Market”, the first market of its kind in Doha, Qatar, under the umbrella of Bedaya Center for Entrepreneurship and Career Development, the joint initiative by Qatar Development Bank and Silatech.

The market has been arranged during the nights of the holy month at the parking lot of the Al Duhail Sports Club.

The “Night Market” is a unique concept set for the first time in Qatar, which depends on the processing of containers to be a distinct location for selling products and goods from different categories and facilitates the work and reduces the cost to tenants, especially for SMEs and start-ups entrepreneurs, said a statement.

It also meets the needs of the local community by offering a variety of products at a special gathering location during the holy month of Ramadan from 8 pm to 2 am, it said.

“Dukan Bedaya” is participating at the first edition of “Night Market” throughout Ramadan 2018 with 60 businesses working in different industries varying between spices, tea, coffee, clothing apparels, perfumes, accessories, incense, kids clothing, etc.

On this occasion, Reem Al Suwaidi, general manager of Bedaya Center, said: “We are participating at the first night market in town taking place at Al Duhail Sports Club with 60 businesses under Dukan Bedaya.”

“Even though they work in different categories and lines of business, but they are in tune with the Ramadan atmosphere through the nature of their goods,” he said.

“We have been able to provide the best opportunity for entrepreneurs to showcase their projects and communicate better with a large segment of society during the holy month of Ramadan where this participation represents a unique opportunity for them to display their products and their show their abilities in promoting their business and projects, especially with the Night Market’s special timing  and working hours that are distinctive and suitable for the whole family and segments of the society,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
