This is the first exhibition dedicated to amber in Qatar and is considered to be in the Middle East.

For amber lovers and those who find this natural beauty particularly intriguing, the exhibition will offer a great opportunity to explore the different types of amber as well as the various ways in which it is used.
The four-day event will also include many activities such as lectures and seminars dealing with the culture and acquisition of amber, display of amber lamps and opportunities for exhibitors, traders and customers to interact.
General Manager, Katara, Dr Khaled bin Ibrahim al-Sulaiti, said, "Since the launch of the first edition in January 2019, Katara International Amber Exhibition has held its rightful place as a permanent international forum for amateurs and traders in the amber industry.”
“We have opened a permanent headquarters for amber at one of our buildings at the Cultural Village and have also signed a set of agreements to establish training and educational workshops about the amber industry under the supervision of international experts and to review specifications and standards in cooperation with international institutions specializing in amber,” he highlighted.
According to Dr Al Sulaiti, this enhances the position of Qatar as an international destination for trade and acquisition of amber in the world.
