The National Tourism Council of Qatar signs Diamond Sponsorship with UFI

 Friday, November 23, 2018 


UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, has signed up the National Tourism Council (NTC) of Qatar as a Diamond Sponsor. Also, the parties have signed a complementary Framework Agreement, which looks at ways to build up the exhibition industry in Qatar.


NTC joins the top tier of UFI Diamond Sponsors, which involves year-round endorsement and engagement with the global network of members of UFI. The agreement will aim on connecting Qatar to two of the industry’s fastest growing markets – China and India.


To quote Ahmed Al Obaidli, Director of Exhibitions, NTC, “Qatar is strategically located at the heart of one of the most prosperous and rapidly developing regions – at the crossroad of Asia, Europe and Africa. It boasts world-class exhibition and conference venues and we embrace this chance to welcome the international exhibition community to come and do business here. NTC naturally complements UFI’s values and is in a perfect position to work closely with the global association.”


Kai Hattendorf, CEO and Managing Director of UFI, added: “We are very pleased to welcome NTC as a Diamond Sponsor. This programme enables UFI to take on, develop and promote new activities, education, events and services. We thank NTC for their support and look forward to developing a closer co-operation and understanding over the coming years.”


Also, the NTC and IFP Qatar lately has joined hands to introduce the first tourism-focused conference in Qatar, arranged on the sidelines of the fourth edition of the annual Hospitality Qatar exhibition, 6-8 November.


Ahmed Al Obaidli said: “Supporting local conferences and exhibitions is in line with our efforts to empower event organisers and lay the groundwork for a thriving business events industry in Qatar.”
