Venue and Accommodation

    Doha, Qatar

    Doha, Qatar

    Doha is located half way down the east coast of Qatar and is a burgeoning modern city, especially around the smart Doha Corniche area.

    Doha has a population in excess of 600,000 if one includes Al Rayaan on its western edge. This is around three quarters of Qatar's total population, so the Doha conurbation totally dominates Qatar economically.

    When it comes to quality shopping, Doha is really well served. From the largest, modern shopping complexes and malls to the tiny shops of the traditional souqs, or Arab markets, eager shoppers will find everything they need and more.

    Facilities like the City Centre Doha,the largest shopping complex in the Middle East, offer world-famous brands alongside many exciting facilities for families.
