Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive and Secretary-General of Qatar National Tourism Council, HE Akbar Al Baker, said they are proud and committed to continuing to promote Doha as a stopover destination. Shop Qatar is the first in a line-up of events happening in 2020.

As the Official Airline sponsor, Qatar Airways is offering international guests special offers to Doha as part of the Shop Qatar festival. These offers will include special airfares from select destinations, stopover and travel packages by Discover Qatar and Qatar Airways Holidays, all of which will help further boost visitor numbers.

We are also thankful to the Ministry of Interior who have agreed to fast track visa applications within 24 hours for anyone identifying Shop Qatar as the reason for their visit to Doha. This is in addition to the 80 countries who already enjoy visa-free access to Qatar, ensuring that we are able to welcome as many visitors to our nation as possible.’

Shop Qatar will showcase the work of local, regional and international designers, with a series of fashion shows and makeup masterclasses with celebrity artists and influencers. The celebrations will end with the Chinese New Year festivities. There will also be an array of mall activations, children’s entertainment shows and a host of live music concerts.

Following Shop Qatar is an exciting programme of events in 2020, including Doha Jewellery and Watches Exhibition (24 to 29 February), Qatar International Food Festival (24 March to 2 April) and Doha Design Week (18 to 28 March).
