Joining its stellar roster of government entities and private sector supporters are: Official Bank: Doha Bank, Event Partner: Decor & More, and Competition Educational Partner: VCUarts Qatar. 

With an event concept that supports the government's agenda to improve Qatar's urban renaissance, stimulate the construction industry, and enhance housing for local citizens, 

Build Your House Exhibition 2023 has already garnered support from Official Partner: Ashghal; Sustainability Partner: Kahramaa; supported by: Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Ministry of Municipality, Civil Defence and Qatar Chamber; Official Airline: Qatar Airways; Gold Sponsors: Al Hattab Holding, Living Spirit Interior Design, Al Emadi Stones;  Conference Partner: American Institute of Architects (AIA MEA); Landscaping Sponsor: Alsulaiteen Gardens; Property partner: Qatar Living Properties; Insurance partner: Seib Insurance & reinsurance, Cleaning partner: Touch for cleaning; Official freight: BCC logistics; and venue partner: Qatar National Convention Centre.

Mr. Rawad Sleem, Co-Founder and General Manager of NeXTfairs for Exhibitions and Conferences, said: "We are thrilled to welcome three new sponsors onboard. These companies and institutions align with our ambitious goals – pushing for progress and welcoming collaboration to harness the creativity that enables Qatar to achieve its National Vision."

He added: "We are also honored to have become a platform that stimulates growth in the construction industry and a catalyst for personal growth. Build Your House Exhibition enables Qatari housebuilders to bring their vision to life and our annual Junior Interior Design Competition helps students to enjoy invaluable industry experience and win prizes with esteemed brands to gain new expertise and skills." 

BYH 2023 Official Bank Partner, Doha Bank, will be attending the exhibition, sharing a booth with their insurance company Al Sharq Insurance, helping visitors to learn more about their Green Home Loan offer. The Green Home Loan rewards customers building homes with sustainability in mind and making greener choices – for a positive impact on people and our planet.

Gudni Stiholt Adalsteinsson, Acting CEO & Chief Treasury and Investment Officer, Doha Bank said: “We are glad to be part of one of the new and unique initiatives in Qatar – Build Your House 2023 exhibition. Doha Bank supports sustainable development goals, promotes environmental consciousness among homeowners, and contributes to the nation’s mission to fight against climate change. Our Green Home Loan offer rewards environmentally friendly homemakers and prospective homeowners with extremely attractive benefits as one of the ways we encourage greener choices. This is a wonderful opportunity for Qataris to modernize their home in sustainable way and at a cheaper cost, thus, aiming towards better homes and better human development.”

BYH’s 2023 official Event Partner: Decor & More, is owned by the prominent businesswoman and influencer Eng. Maram Zghoul will be attending the exhibition daily to showcase a wide variety of activities and conference sessions, from the opening ceremony to the student design competition, Q&As, and overall coverage of the exhibition.  

Commenting on her attendance and participation at the event, Eng. Maram Al Zghoul, the founder of Decor & More, said: “I am delighted to contribute to Build Your House Exhibition 2023. Owning a company that inspires people to enjoy a rich and high-quality lifestyle at home, I am committed to helping people explore the opportunities and information available at Build Your House Exhibition. I aim to amplify the exhibition’s reach while providing valuable content that helps people to achieve their self-build and interior design dreams.”

The fourth edition of BYH Exhibition will also be a platform to provide students with real industry experience. The annual Junior Interior Design Competition, in collaboration with VCUarts Qatar, BYH's educational competition partner – has enjoyed four years of nurturing Qatar's future design talent. Three shortlisted competition winners, chosen by a jury from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) MEA and Eng. Maram Al Zghoul, will be announced at Build Your House Exhibition during day 2, 16 May, and be awarded prizes and showcase their designs at the VCUarts Qatar booth. 

Each year, VCUarts Qatar's Junior Interior Design competition challenges students to work on a design brief to suit a particular home user's needs. This year's brief, created in collaboration with Msheireb Properties, asked students to create a Live/Work hybrid space that combines a home for two distinct users to live in and work from.

Liam Colquhoun, Associate Professor of Interior Design Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Qatar, said: "Residential design is a booming sector in Qatar as well as an integral element of the VCUarts Qatar Interior Design curriculum. It is an area of design that forces students to consider the importance of user customization, site analysis and precedents. This particular sophomore-level project, developed with assistance from our partners at Msheireb Properties, asked students to develop a Live-Work hybrid space that combines a home for two distinct users to live in and work from. It is also a pleasure to continue our collaboration with Nextfairs, whose support allows the work of our students to be disseminated to a wide audience of industry professionals at the Build Your House 2023 Expo. Collaborative partnerships with prominent stakeholders like Msheireb Properties and Nextfairs enrich the VCUarts Qatar interior design program and elevate the work of our student body."

Build Your House Exhibition 2023 is an educational and insightful event for visitors and a not-to-be-missed opportunity for exhibitors seeking access to a primed niche market. The event enables Qatari housebuilders to understand the processes they must undertake to complete their home build – including vital government registration and access to housing loans. While it also connects these housebuilders to the contractors and suppliers they need to build the house of their dreams – ensuring deals are made and significantly boosting the local construction industry. 

Qatar's construction industry is enjoying its best returns from the current year, according to a report by Al-Asmakh Real Estate Projects. In addition, the report highlighted the country's ability to maintain its position as one of the safest and strongest sectors, thanks to the continued government spending on major development projects included in the 2023 budget and the stimulus that this represents.

The report added that one of the most critical factors leading to the growth of the real estate sector was the continuation of work on the completion of infrastructure projects, especially the development of citizens' lands. The report indicated that in addition to the high-value contracts that have been tendered, many contracts related to infrastructure, such as roads and sanitation and the development of citizens' lands were the focus of real estate construction activity in the second half of this year. In short, the project market in Qatar is receiving a solid impetus through two related goals: national development and building infrastructure.

The fourth edition of Build Your House Exhibition is set to connect Qatari visitors to an enhanced array of services and products from consultants, contractors, suppliers – smart homes and general service industry leaders. In addition, guests can access vital knowledge sharing, practical workshops from government entities, live Q&As, participate in a free self-build course and learn about the latest trends and technology. 

Build Your House Exhibition 2023 – BYH 2023 will take place from 15 to 18 May 2023 at QNCC and open to the public from 10 am to 10 pm. Overseas visitors can enjoy a reduced travel rate: Build Your House Exhibition 2023 – BYH 2023 has signed an exclusive discount with Qatar Airways, which enables travelers to receive a 15 per cent discount.
