The Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC) and the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) signed a partnership deal to continue to promote Qatar as a hub for business events and further contribute to strengthening Qatar National Vision 2030.

The partnership is an important milestone for the State of Qatar, as the two entities represent the largest companies that manage and operate exhibition and convention centres in the country.

Exhibitions beyond 2022

The two venues are looking beyond 2022 to build on events, conferences, live shows, and exhibitions to develop the industry within Qatar. The two companies will strategically focus on not only local but international audiences. In line with this offering, they will also focus on common knowledge and training of staff to create best industry practices and implement future governed safety regulations within the exhibition industry in Qatar.

The venues alongside Qatar Tourism will visit a number of roadshows and industry exhibitions to promote Doha internationally amongst key decision-makers.
