International Amber Exhibition to open tomorrow at Katara

By QLNews

The fascinating International Amber (Kahraman) Exhibition returns with its second edition this year.

All set to open tomorrow at Hall 12 in Katara – the Cultural Village, this edition of the Kahraman exhibition will feature exhibitors from as many as 13 countries.

With more than 90 stalls and a display platform, the exhibition will showcase some of the most exquisite exhibits of Kahraman.

The exhibition, which will run until Saturday, January 11, will also see the participation of international representatives of international amber bodies.

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

The exhibition is also recognized as the second largest international exhibition on amber ore after the international exhibition held in Poland, according to Qatar News Agency (QNA).

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.
