The Expo 2023 Doha, which is set to run at Al Bidda Park from October 2 to March 28, 2024, is expected to attract over three million visitors. It will be a first-of-its-kind initiative to be held in Qatar and the Middle East.
Qatar’s national carrier, after a year of growth marked by the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, will continue to raise the country’s profile as an unparalleled destination by promoting Expo 2023 Doha as a must-visit attraction for travellers and business visitors.
