First launched last year, when just over half of Qatar’s $10bn-plus contracts awarded were in the construction and civil infrastructure sectors, the international construction expo comes back to Doha as industry reports forecast ongoing business opportunities.

"Qatar now has over $150bn worth of known planned and un-awarded projects in the pipeline. It is by far one of the largest future markets in the MENA region and we couldn’t be more delighted to return in support of it," said Loubna Aghzafi, Country Manager at dmg events (Doha).

Commenting on the Qatar Construction Market Report, released in partnership with MEED Projects, she added: "Construction and transport projects continue to make up the bulk of planned projects in Qatar, approximately 86% of the total current value in fact, showing that we must continue to bring international and local stakeholders together."
