MEET THE CULTURE

COMPARISON WITH THE REGION

Congress organisers in Qatar have uncovered a simple formula for long-term development. Investment in infrastructure + excellent air accessibility + authenticity and culture, are rapidly launching it among the world’s leading congress destinations. There are few organisers who are not tempted to peek into the background of stories about this mysterious Arab country – many of which are reminiscent of the modern fairytale about One Thousand and One Nights. Thanks to its Middle Eastern charm, friendly people, magnificent congress hotels, sun, sea, and exceptional congress infrastructure, Qatar is becoming an increasingly popular congress destination – one that is highly recommended.

*ACI Europe Airport Connectivity (higher is better) is based on the SEO NetScan connectivity model, which measures airport connectivity in a more comprehensive way. It measures the number and quality of direct/non-stop connections as well as indirect connections via other airports. The NetScan model brings the most relevant connection components of every single market (frequency, travel time, connecting time) together into a single indicator: the Airport Connectivity Index. Find out more at www.aci-europe.org.
