Qatar Tourism outlines long-term tourism strategy

Thursday, 02 Nov, 2021 0

Qatar Tourism has laid out its long term tourism goals as the one year countdown to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 grows closer.

The ‘Qatar Tourism Strategy 2030’ is capitalising on a wave of new hotels, theme parks, shops and major leisure projects that have recently opened or are set to launch in the lead up to the FIFA World Cup next year.

The strategy aims to grow annual international visitor arrivals three-fold to reach six million by 2030..

It aims to quadruple visitor in-destination spending from 2019 levels by increasing the length of stay and for travel and tourism to contribute 10% of the country’s GDP by 2030.

Qatar is adding 105 new hotels and serviced apartments as the country gears up to host the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

The new properties include Banyan Tree Doha; the Pullman Doha West Bay; the JW Marriott West Bay; and the Steigenberger Hotel.

Qatar says it is on course to deliver the first carbon-neutral event in World Cup history.

This is made possible by the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) certification and no internal flights.

There will also be the first fully dismountable FIFA World Cup stadium.

Constructed from shipping containers with removable seats, the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium will provide an innovative blueprint for major tournament hosts in the future.

The 40,000-capacity venue will be completely dismantled and repurposed after the event, with its parts used to create sporting facilities in Qatar and overseas.
