Qatar Tourism Authority looks towards Asia
Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) will
participate in the second annual ITB Asia, the largest Asian Travel Trade show, to
be held in Singapore from October 21 to 23 at Suntec City. QTA participated in the
launch ITB Asia event in 2008, and as Asia is a growing and important market for
Qatar, will be exhibiting in ITB Asia 2009 with an important delegation from the
Qatar tourism and hospitality industries. This year will be the first time QTA's
new branding and logo will be promoted in Asia.
Qatar Tourism Authority will promote Qatar to the Asian market, by focusing on

incentive planners, travel operators, and boards of tourism authorities.
Qatar Tourism Authority represents and promotes Qatar as a unique and specific
business destination. Already known as a progressive business hub, Qatar is
well-positioned to take advantage of the MICE market, offering state-of-the-art
venues with a harmonious blend of upscale leisure and cultural attractions. Mr
Ahmed A. Al Nuaimi, Chairman of Qatar Tourism Authority, commented: "We are pleased
to be exhibiting again at ITB Asia this year. Asia is an important market for Qatar
as we have partnered in many key business ventures in recent years. Located mid-way
between Asia and Europe, Qatar acts as a bridge between East and West, and is a
short flight from the major Asian cities on Qatar Airways. Qatar offers a unique
experience for its visitors, both with the classic Arabian traditions and modern
Qatar Tourism Authority will be accompanied by an important delegation representing
