THE sixth Qatar Exhibition and Forum for Investment and Finance, also known as Q-Money 2010, concluded on Thursday.

The four-day event which started at the Doha Exhibition Centre on December 20 was held under the patronage of Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs HE Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabor al Thani.

Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company was the ‘strategic sponsor’ of the event.

It showcased its various projects at the exhibition.

The event gave Qatari Diar an opportunity to raise public awareness about the company’s many projects, besides helping in identifying other companies and projects in the field and highlighting the current needs in the local real estate market.

At the same time, businessmen and visitors attending the event were given the opportunity to learn more about these projects.

The company’s pavilion at the exhibition displayed Qatari Diar’s most prominent projects and offered a detailed glimpse of the visionary Lusail City development.

Qatari Diar has sponsored the event for the second time, after having participated in Q-Money 2008, and joined a number of major companies at the exhibition.

We are always eager to participate in events and activities like this one, which benefit both the exhibitors and the visitors.

At Q-Money 2010, we will focus on our visionary Lusail City project, the largest real estate project in Qatar.” “Qatari Diar is committed to realising Qatar’s potential domestically, regionally and internationally and advancing the social and economic development not only of Qatar, but of as many as communities as possible,” al Hedfa added.

The Qatar Exhibition and Forum for investment and finance offers a professional network and outlet for marketing and promoting the country’s investments in various platforms.

Chief Administration Officer of Qatari Diar Abullatif Mohamed al Noaimi spoke on the future of real estate investment in Qatar in light of global challenges.

Al Noaimi said, “Qatar is currently experiencing an unparalleled economic boom, particularly after winning the bid to host the World Cup in 2022.

The 2022 bid win represents a prime opportunity to further invigorate the country’s thriving real estate market and will play an essential role in the country’s continuing economic expansion at all levels.” At the forum, Qatari Diar exhibited several of its projects, which are spread across a number of neighboring countries.

Among these projects, Qatari Diar highlighted the Lusail City development, one of the most prominent waterfront projects in Qatar.

Lusail City will serve as a modern extension to Doha, covering an area of 35 square kilometers of pristine natural waterfront.

It is currently one of the most promising modern community-based projects in the region.

It represents a new way of thinking about the environment.

Lusail City will offer not only new residential and commercial opportunities, but a full range of community needs, with schools, hospitals, entertainment and social centers.
