Hamad Port centrepiece of first day at Project Qatar
More than 40 exhibitors at Project Qatar 2015, the 12th International Construction Technology and Building Materials Exhibition, visited the Hamad Port project in Doha on the first day of the event.
Hamad Port, one of the largest greenfield deep water port projects in the world, is part of the New Port Project spearheaded by His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar, in 2007, which envisions a 26.5sq km port and freezone logistics hub on the outskirts of the Qatari capital.
"What makes Project Qatar unique is its location in one of the most vibrant economies and constructions markets worldwide,” said one of the international exhibitors at Project Qatar. “By visiting the Hamad New Port Project, I witnessed the rapid development of one of Qatar's key infrastructure projects first-hand. The site-tour not only gave me a chance to see technology and theory in practice, but to strategically think about future business."
Project Qatar 2015 is a four day event that sees a wide range of leading companies and brands from across the world exhibiting for a diverse range of industry professionals and experts.
The exhibition hosts more than 2000+ companies and brands as well as 21 pavilions from 40 countries. An estimated 50,000 visitors will visit the show this year.
