Qatar Airways and Qatar Duty Free (QDF) are proud sponsors of the 29th edition of Qatar ExxonMobil Open, taking place this week, from 6 to 11 January at the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex in Doha.
The Qatar ExxonMobil Open 2020 will feature several of the world’s top tennis players including Stan Wawrinka and Milos Raonic. The tournament is one of two Association for Tennis Professionals (ATP) World Tour events held in the Middle East. Past tournaments have been praised for their level of organisation with last year’s competition winning the Best ATP tournament 250 category Award voted by players, for the third time after 2015 and 2018.
Qatar Airways Senior VP for Marketing and Corporate Communications, Salam Al Shawa, said it is an exciting time of the year to be in Doha, witnessing top class athletes compete in the state-of-the-art Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex.
Being the national airline sponsor of this major ATP tournament emphasises our commitment to Qatar’s vision of being the region’s premier sports hub. Our long-established sponsorship of the Qatar ExxonMobil Open tournament displays our commitment to serving world-class hospitality and we wish every player the best of luck.’
Qatar Duty Free VP for Operations, Thabet Musleh, said they are very proud to support the ExxonMobil tennis open for more than a decade now, and looks forward to welcoming both local and international visitors to the tournament. QDF has a booth at the public village, and they prepared some entertainment before the matches.
We are also pleased to welcome players and visitors to enjoy our award-winning retail and dining outlets as they travel out of Qatar through Hamad International Airport after the matches. We look forward to the games and wish the Qatar Tennis Federation and all the players a successful and enjoyable tournament.’
Qatar Airways and QDF will mark their presence at the tournament by hosting special booths, offering visitors a taste of their award-winning services. The Qatar Airways booth will feature an interactive green screen where tennis fans can get their photos printed on virtual backgrounds such as upcoming destinations and onboard an aircraft.
The QDF booth will feature a photo opportunity along with a game where visitors can guess the number of tennis balls in the giant QDF logo-shaped container and share it on social media for a chance to win a hamper of QDF products. Qatar Airways will also be represented by their cabin crew at the finals ceremony on 11 January.
