DOHA: LightingTech Qatar and HVACTech Qatar (representing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning products) are two brand new specialised conferences, which will take place concurrently with ‘Project Qatar 2014’, the 11th edition of the upcoming international construction technology and building materials exhibition to be held here from May 12 to 15 at Qatar National Convention Centre.
A press statement released by IFP Qatar, the organiser of the coveted event, said that with an estimated $350bn worth of projects currently in the planning or construction phase, Qatar is at the heart of the growing construction industry in the GCC and internationally.
To support this growth, Project Qatar 2014 has expanded its conference series. IFP Qatar has partnered with Advanced Conferences & Meetings (ACM) to create a unique business platform for companies to network amongst leading consultants and meet local and international industry experts.
LightingTech Qatar will take place from May 12 to13, followed by HVACTech from May 14 to15.
LightingTech Qatar 2014 is designed to address the lighting industry needs specific to the Qatari market, in view of the current and upcoming construction projects and sustainability goals within Qatar.
Tom Gore, ACM Managing Director, said: “The Project Qatar conference series is the result of both the exclusive position of Project Qatar in the annual Qatari construction calendar and rapidly growing demand for specialist, interactive insights into the challenges and opportunities facing companies within Project Qatar’s product and services profiles. IFP Qatar has partnered with ACM in order to create a unique series of conferences that would give access to expert decision makers alongside the means to network effectively amongst new business prospects.”
