Interior Projects Investment in Qatar

4th Annual Future Interiors Qatar 2017 has been designed to showcase the latest interior design projects and opportunities for fit-outs in Qatar. With the construction of eight stadiums for the Qatar world cup well underway, millions of dollars of investment will be spent on designing and constructing commercial, retail, residential, hospitality and transportation to cater for the influx of tourists into Qatar. 

Lusail City: Under development is Lusail City, one of the most ambitious and advanced construction projects ever to be undertaken. The city, which is expected to cost in the region of $ 45 billion, will consist of two marinas, a theme park and housing to accommodate 450,000 people. The smart city will also comprise the Lusail iconic stadium and the Lusail mall.

Msheireb Urban Regeneration Project: Also underway in Qatar is the Msheireb project which is the world’s first sustainable downtown regeneration project. The project will simultaneously preserve and regenerate the historical Downtown Doha area. The Msheireb Project will be a fusion of Qatari heritage with modern technology and architectural accents and is being constructed in four phases. Construction of phases one to four are complete. Phase four consists of a public plaza and twelve mixed use buildings.

Doha Metro: Still to be completed is the ambitious Doha Metro project. The Doha metro will serve the capital and surrounding suburbs and will include a red, green and gold line. Phase one of the Doha Metro project is expected to be complete in 2019 and will consist of the construction of all three lines. The second phase of the project is expected to be completed in 2026 and will involve the construction of 72 stations, the largest of which will be Msheireb Metro Station.

The 4th annual Future Interiors Qatar 2017 will provide platform for Qatar’s interior architecture and design industry to gather together to exchange knowledge, share best practice and network. It will bring together interior designers, architects, project owners, developers and end-users to discuss and showcase the latest interior design projects and opportunities for fit-outs in Qatar and the most innovative products and solutions for commercial, residential, hospitality, private and public sector interiors

The ACM Interface+ Format

The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.

ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.

Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
