Qatar International Boat Show is one of the premiere luxury events in Qatar where boats and yacht owners can discover more about the marine industry. It is a must see event for boaters and also anyone considering getting into yachting. It’s the ideal marine networking event and business driver for the marine sector. Every year exhibitors and professionals from the recreational yachting industry get together in Qatar, including manufacturers, dealers, brokers and consumers too.
Whilst you are in Qatar attending the International Boat Show, why not extend your stay and explore the region.
Qatar is a peninsular Arab country whose terrain comprises arid desert and a long Persian (Arab) Gulf shoreline of beaches and dunes. Along the coast is the capital, Doha, known for its stunning and advanced skyscrapers and other ultra-modern architecture, all of which is inspired by ancient Islamic design. This can be seen in places such as the limestone Museum of Islamic Art. The museum itself sits on the city’s Corniche waterfront promenade.
Qatar’s love of art has spilled over from the museums and into its public spaces, anyone who has ever been through Doha’s Hamad International Airport could not have missed the 23-foot yellow teddy sitting in the middle of the terminal. Lamp/Bear was created by the Swiss artist Urs Fischer and is cast from bronze that weighs almost 20 tonnes.
In a country of around 2.5 million people, there are fewer than 700,000 women! That’s approximately a 1 to 3 ratio, which is attributed to Qatar’s population explosion. Qatar is a state built by immigrants, who are overwhelmingly young and male, and the promise of a job has meant people have flooded into Qatar – which is about the same size as Yorkshire. While there are female migrants, the vast majority are men building the infrastructure needed for the upcoming Football World Cup in 2022.
The Qatar International Boat Show 2021 will be held at Pearl-Qatar, Porto Arabia, Doha, Qatar, UAE. Porto Arabia is a beautiful waterfront neighbourhood in Doha, and inside there is an artificial island called “The Pearl” with around 12,000 residents enjoying the luxurious lifestyle and extraordinary views. The name of “The Pearl” comes from its location, which previously was one of the major pearl diving sites back in the times when Qatar was one of the most important pearl traders in the whole Asia before the oil boom.
Qatar launched its first-ever Qatar International Boat Show (QIBS) in November 2013. It provides an industry networking platform, generating solid opportunities for the promotion of new boats and services, supporting the growth of the marine ecosystem in Qatar and creates a luxury marketplace for affluent Middle Eastern and Asian buyers.
Qatar has one of the world’s largest reserves of petroleum and natural gas, and it employs large numbers of foreign workers for the production process. Because of its oil wealth, the country’s residents enjoy a high standard of living and an established system of social services.
Following the rise of Islam, Qatar and the surrounding regions became subject to the rule of the chief Muslim ruler. After, it was ruled by a number of local and foreign dynasties before falling under the control of the Āl Thānī in the 19th century. In the late 19th century however, competing tribal groups were causing uproar, and the Āl Thānī asked for British support against them, and also against the Ottoman Empire. In exchange, the UK controlled Qatar’s foreign policy until their independence in 1971.
The official language is Arabic, although most also speak English.
Doha is the capital of Qatar
Qatari riyal (QR) is the regional currency in Qatar.
