The Qatari real estate market has shown great resilience and investment opportunities continue to abound. In its sixth year, Q-Rex has become the premier international exhibition in Qatar for real estate and investment, bringing together hundreds of companies from the GCC and abroad to offer opportunities to showcase projects and real estate investment services.
