Event professionals from around Europe landed in Doha, Qatar on Saturday evening for C&IT’s four-day Complete Qatar familiarisation and educational trip, hosted in partnership with the Qatar Tourism Authority. The trip presented the group with a rich opportunity to sample the C&I highlights of the destination before meeting with local suppliers one-on-one.
Activities included a tour of the Qatar National Convention Centre’s facilities and the Museum of Islamic Art, a desert safari and a trip to the local souq.
