The countdown to INDEX Qatar 2019 has begun, with less than six weeks to go until the annual 3-day interior design and fit-out show opens in Doha, where an array of exhibitors covering every category of interior design will set out their wares at the Doha Exhibition & Conference Center from 22 to 24 October, 2019.

With its exceptional ability to attract diverse international exhibitors, INDEX Qatar will offer architects, interior designers, hotel outfitters, retailers, furniture stores and wholesalers in Qatar an unrivalled opportunity to view and source the most comprehensive mix of interior design products and services currently available, whilst keeping abreast of the latest design trends.

Following on the success of the 2018 exhibition, it is anticipated that the 2019 edition will attract even higher attendance and participation from more countries, reflecting the exciting opportunities currently being created by Qatar’s booming construction market, where mega projects at various stages of development are fuelling a demand for great interior design products and services, particularly projects related to the hospitality, residential, commercial and retail industries.INDEX Qatar is endorsed by Qatar National Tourism Council this year, who are encouraging global and regional interior companies to be part of the event, and to experience Qatar as an evolving world-class tourism hub.

‘We are keenly looking forward to the launch of INDEX Qatar’s third and biggest edition in just under six weeks,” said Jaafar Shubber, INDEX Qatar’s Event Director. “We are confident that ourunique co-location with Cityscape Qatar this year will make the 2019 edition an exceptional platform for firms to showcase their products and services and attract key buyers along with professionals and industry leaders. We also expect global suppliers and international companies looking to access Qatar’s interiors market to be particularly well-represented. With three years of preparation remaining for the FIFA World Cup 2022, Qatar’s multi-billion-dollar mega construction projects are now looking to source interior materials, furnishing and fit-out suppliers and products, providing a lucrative market for interior products that cater to different sectors.’

Nabeel Sabir, representing Fabrica Home, an exhibitor for the past three editions, said: ‘Fabrica has the honour to once again be part of INDEX Qatar, aleading event that connects those of us in the industry undertaking interior and fit-out services with potential partners and buyers. We look forward to supporting and participating in this year’s event through interaction with suppliers, interior design professionals, exhibitors and buyers, and we extend our appreciation to the event organisers for this valuable opportunity.’

Exhibitors already confirmed for this year’s INDEX Qatar include Al Darwish Engineering, CeramicheBatignani, Cervo Bianco, Cristal de Paris, Elstead Lighting, La Favorita Mezzaluna, Misasa Stone, Sedar Qatar,and many others. Now a familiar feature of INDEX Qatar, the Design Talks will present three days of presentations, panel discussions, interviews and case studies from leading interior designers, fit-out companies and architects, who are currently contributing to the creation of Qatar’s modern built environment.

In its third edition, this year’s INDEX Qatar will be co-located with Cityscape Qatar, the country’s only international real estate investment event.
