General Information about Doha for Meeting Planners and Event Professionals:

Doha is the capital and most populated city of Qatar. Located on the Persian Gulf’s coast, it has a population of almost 1.5 million and is a fast growing city officially recognized as one of the ‘New Seven Wonders Cities,’ together with Beirut, Durban, La Paz, Vigan, Kuala Lumpur, and Havana. It is the economic, commercial, and financial center of Qatar and the 10th most expensive city to live in the world. By the 20th century, Doha became famous for its flourishing pearl trade. Nowadays, its economy and revenue are primary built from its oil and gas industries, the city being the headquarters of various national and international organizations, such as Qatar’s largest oil and gas companies, Qatargas and RasGas. In terms of architecture, Doha is largely characterized by modern buildings, including more than 50 skyscrapers. Since most of the city’s districts with traditional architecture were demolished in order to make room for new constructions, various measures have been taken in order to preserve Doha’s architectural and cultural tradition and heritage, such as the Qatar Museums Authority’s Al Turath al Hai (‘living heritage’). Additionally, sheikh Tamim Al Thani founded a small village within the city of Doha, the Katara Cultural Village, aiming to preserve the country’s cultural identity.

The City as a Conference Destination

Doha is an important convention and conference center, hosting various international events focused on themes such as education, environmentalism and sustainability, entrepreneurship, and construction technologies. Its most important conferences include: the Teaching & Learning Forum, where top education professionals gather to discuss the latest developments in the field of education, the Qatar Green Building Council, addressing sustainability challenges and solutions, the Rowad Quatar Entrepreneurship Award and Conference, an event founded and organized by Qatar Development Bank (QDB), or the Big 5 Qatar, an important event for the Built Environment industry, where topics such as construction technologies and innovations, construction tools and building materials, and machinery and vehicles are addressed.
