The second edition of the Qatar Travel Mart (QTM) will kick off on Monday, November 20, at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC).

The event, which will be inaugurated by Qatar’s Minister of Commerce and Industry HE Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Qassim Al Abdullah Al Thani, will run for three days and conclude on November 22.

The exhibition, which the public can access via free registration, will operate from 10am to 7pm every day.

QTM 2023, which is being organised by NEXTfairs, is expected to draw around 9,000 visitors. It will showcase seven key travel sectors in Qatar — Sports, Culture, Leisure, Luxury, Medical, Halal tourism and ‘Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions’ (MICE).

The event aims to extend its reach beyond the sporting industry, welcoming entities such as Destination Management Companies (DMCs), tour operators, travel agencies, travel technology companies, associations and local and international tourism boards.

Recognising the evolving needs of the travel and tourism industry, QTM 2023 will serve as a crucial platform for forging new connections, exploring opportunities, and re-establishing existing relationships.

“Qatar Travel Mart 2023 will further strengthen tourism industry’s competitiveness by bringing together inbound and outbound tourism. It will provide tourism businesses with a marketplace for mutual relationship at home and abroad to promote their tourism resources and cultures,” said organisers.

The ‘QTM Conference’ will be one of the event’s focal points, featuring thought leaders, experts, and influential stakeholders providing insights into the latest industry trends and innovations.

Keynote speakers include Qatar Tourism Chairman Saad Al Khariji, OIC-ICDT Secretary General Hissen Ibrahim Taha, Prof Muzaffer Uysal, Professor and Chair of the Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management at the University of Massachusetts and Tom Jenkins, Chief Executive Officer of the European Tourism Association.

The conference will host panel discussions on ‘The Future Of Travel & Tourism: A Growing Positive Curve,’ ‘Creating A World Class Sustainable Destination & Services,’ and ‘Preserving Cultural Heritage & Promoting Tourism.’

Interested participants can freely register for the event here.
