This is our fifth participation at Project Qatar; we kept coming back due to the amount of business opportunities generated from the show. This year the caliber of visitors is great; people visiting our stands are really showing interest in our products and this is essential for us.
Mr. Fernando Ippoliti COnFAPI, Italy
This is our second participation at Project Qatar. We participated this year again in the light of the importance of this exhibition and because it is a great chance to better promote ourselves in the Qatari market.
National Building Material & Carpentry Qatar
This is our second participation at Project Qatar and this year we increased the space occupied by 60% from last year. Project Qatar is meeting international standards and I believe it is one of the best exhibitions in the region; the number of visitors it attracts is quite impressive and all are showing interest in our offerings. We hope to be here next year with even bigger space.
Mr. Mustafa Gulec Official Commercial Counselor Embassy of Turkey in Qatar
We are the second biggest participating country at this event. Visiting stands of Turkish companies, I can see many deals being made with professionals and experts in the industry who are looking for partners. It is very important for the Turkish companies to participate in Project Qatar since it is an essential channel to gain access to this important region. We are using various instruments to access this market and Project Qatar is one of the main instruments.
Mr. Monif Kilani Economic and Commercial Counselor Belgian Embassy
Each year we are increasing the number of participating companies and the size occupied by the Belgian pavilion. In general, participating companies are looking for new business deals, new opportunity, and new agents; personally, I expect many deals to be signed here. At the same time, we want to learn about the market trends in Qatar and its demand patterns. Project Qatar impressed me this year with its increase in size from last year; we wish all the best for the exhibition and the organizers, and we hope to be here for several more editions.
Mr. Guido Bolatto Secretary General Turin Chamber of Commerce, Italy
We have been participating at Project Qatar since 2006; in this edition, we have joined with the chamber of commerce of Lombardi and Modena. So far, we have developed many contacts and met various companies and enterprises. Many qualified visitors who are genuinely interested in the products are approaching our companies. We believe that Qatar holds a lot of potential especially upon winning the bid to host the 2022 World Cup; as such, we expect a lot of business and cooperation between Italian and Qatari market. We are very happy to be here and look forward to participating next year with even bigger presence.
