Building on the success of Future Interiors Qatar 2014, Advanced Conferences & Meetings is proud to announce the second edition of Future Interiors Qatar – powered by Project Qatar – taking place on 7 – 8 September 2015.

Excellent opportunities for the Interior Design & Construction Industry:

  • Qatar’s economic growth is expected to be the highest in the GCC in 2015 at 6.9 percent, as the country gears up to meet its infrastructure targets.
  • Ongoing and planned buildings sector projects in Qatar are estimated at US$ 82.0 billion.
  • Qatar has a mandate to add 45,000 hotel rooms to its existing supply of 20,000 in order to achieve the FIFA minimum lodging requirement to host the World Cup in 2022.
  • The total contribution of travel & tourism to Qatar’s GDP was QAR 50.6bn in 2013, and is forecast to rise to QAR 84.7bn in 2024 which will significantly increase the demand for hotel, retail and leisure facilities.

Qatar currently has an estimated US$220bn worth of projects in the pipeline. This new work is already positively impacting the interiors and fit-out market across all major sectors and there are no signs of this rapid growth slowing. The Qatar interiors and fit-out market had an estimated value over US$800 million during 2014, with some studies expecting the value to have doubled by the end of the year.

Future Interiors Qatar will provide a platform for Qatar’s interior architecture and design industry to gather together to exchange knowledge, share best practice and network. It will bring together interior designers, architects, developers and end-users to discuss how to deliver excellent interior design for Qatar’s many projects across the residential, commercial, hospitality, retail, tourism, and leisure industries.

Future Interiors Qatar is an excellent opportunity for industry practitioners to exchange ideas and best practice as case studies from major projects in Qatar and the GCC will be highlighted, whilst also providing a focused platform for manufacturers, materials suppliers and solution providers to showcase their expertise, products and services.
