Qatar Motor Show to feature global brands
Doha, December 27, 2012
Global automotive brands, from family sedans and SUVs to luxury vehicles and sports cars will be on display at the third edition of Qatar Motor Show opening next month in Doha.
The event will open its doors to the public on January 29 and run for five days to end on February 2 in the Doha Exhibition Center. The newest edition will again be organised jointly by the Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA), q.media Events, and GL events.
“Each rendition of the Qatar Motor Show has put the country squarely on the global automotive industry map,” said QTA chairman Issa Bin Mohamed Al-Mohannadi.
“Last year’s event proved to be even more popular than the first show in 2011, and I am more than optimistic that the 2013 event will break all our previous records. We have an exciting line-up this year of international car brands and events taking place concurrently with the motor show, and I am confident that crowds will be fully entertained and intrigued by what we are offering this time around.
“I am delighted that we are once again strategically partnering up with q.media and GL Events for the Qatar Motor Show – who has proved to be essential elements in the successes of our previous events,” he added.
“As what has become tradition, the event will happen both inside and just outside the Doha Exhibition Center, with events related to the motor show occurring concurrently,” continued Al-Mohannadi.
“Therefore, visitors can also expect to be entertained by drifting shows, a car obstacle course, gymnastic performances, sporting relays, and of course, a classic car show. Visitors can also expect a surprise or two.”
Yousif Al-Khater, chief executive officer of q.Media, said: “We have a line-up that will definitely cause a stir, including the unveiling of never-seen before models from renowned car brands, visits and talks from high-caliber celebrities, an area dedicated to one specialized and innovative car brand, and one of the most exciting hyper cars to come to life - with an Arab label.”
“As we get closer to January 29, you’ll know more, but we promise that 2013 will yet another unforgettable Qatar Motor Show. We expect the Qatar Motor Show 2013 to be the best one yet,” he added.
The 2012 Qatar Motor Show saw 120,000 people walk through the doors, a 25 per cent increase from the year before.
“We described last year’s edition as nothing but ‘pure entertainment;” added Al-Khater. “2013, I’d like to think we will be offering ‘pure entertainment plus.’ Just a heads up to the public – prepare to be truly entertained.” – TradeArabia News Service
