Elite members of the country’s business community are keen to guarantee their presence at KidZania Doha, the scale model city in Aspire Zone, when they joined the site visit hosted by KidZania Doha this week for a tour of the facility and a sneak peak of the work in progress.

Local businesses set up a ‘mini’ version of their establishments in Kidzania, within the 5,500 square metre miniature city and theme park for children in Aspire Zone. Brands help create real-life experiences for children, and most sponsors believe that partnership with KidZania provides a unique platform to not only educate children, but also support Qatar National Vision 2030 by encouraging an active interest in experiential learning.

KidZania Doha signed several agreements with many public and private institutions including: Qatar Airways, Qatar National Bank, Ministry of Commerce and Economy, Qatar National Library, Al Rayyan Water, Al Mutahajiba, Jotun Paints, Abdul Samad Al Qurashi and Fairy Tale Salon. More partnership agreements will be  announced soon as KidZania expects to sign more sponsorship deals in the near future.

Governor of KidZania Doha Ric Fearnett said they have been championing role-play globally for almost 20 years, and are currently in partnership with over 1,000 global companies.

We are in the final stages of preparing for the opening of KidZania Doha and welcoming children from Qatar and all over the world; we are proud that we will contribute to Qatar National Vision 2030 through the development and empowerment of children.’

KidZania Doha will provide a unique educational and entertainment experience, offering 42 establishments where children will be able to role play ‘adult jobs’ in up to 60 pretend roles, learning a variety of values including self-reliance, team work, honesty, integrity and giving back to society.

KidZania is the world’s fastest growing family entertainment brand, with KidZania Doha expecting to welcome over 300,000 visitor year-on-year. The establishment will be able to accommodate up to 1,000 children with approximately 250 employees at any one time.
