International Bank of Qatar (ibq) is again sponsoring this year’s prestigious MEED Qatar Projects Conference as Gala Dinner Sponsor. The Conference will be held in Doha from 10th -11th March at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

This year’s Gala Dinner, hosted by ibq for the 7th consecutive year, will be hosted on 10th of March and will set the scene for the 2015 Qatar Projects Conference at a time when Qatar’s infrastructure projects are set to escalate to over $30 billion worth being awarded in what is being seen as a record projects year. The Gala Dinner will see the Qatar Leadership Award 2015 being presented to the company that has made an outstanding contribution to the development of Qatar’s economy and infrastructure and the global oil industry and in particular, an exceptional recent project delivery performance in the Middle East.

Jabra Ghandour, Managing Director of ibq said: “We are delighted to sponsor the MEED Qatar Projects Gala Dinner once more this year as the event reflects the sizeable investment opportunities in Qatar that make it one of the most attractive markets for doing business in the GCC region. With Qatar’s project market experiencing a boom in construction and real estate, ibq has been able to support the demand for much needed corporate banking solutions, with a strong commitment to build long-lasting relationships with its corporate customers.”

How does it feel to fly with the best ?

Edmund O’Sullivan, Chairman, MEED Events commented: “This pivotal annual MEED Conference grows in importance each year as we witness an era in Qatar with massive construction contracts awarded in infrastructure, transport, energy and utilities sectors, including the most extensive urban railway network ever seen. MEED’s event brings together government and business leaders to underline the immense potential for businesses in infrastructure development in Qatar in line with delivering the country’s 2030 vision and strategic priorities.”

The MEED Qatar Projects Conference will feature high-profile speakers, relevant and critical business content and the latest industry news from Qatar and the GCC as well as future project opportunities and master plans.
