The second edition of Qatar Travel Mart returns and will once again gather the world’s top destinations and reveal the latest trends in Sports, MICE, Business, Cultural, Leisure, Luxury, Medical, and Halal tourism. As Qatar will be hosting the most popular sporting event in the world - FIFA World Cup 2022, it is anticipated that QTM 2023 will be a platform to gather entities beyond the realm of the sporting industry to support its demands, such as DMCs, Tour Operators, Travel Agencies, Travel Technology Companies, Associations, and Tourism Boards, both local and international. Now more than ever, the travel and tourism industry needs a venue to create new connections, grasp fresh opportunities, and reconnect with existing relationships. The event will also host a reservoir of thought leaders, experts, and influential stakeholders to provide insights into the industry’s latest trends and innovations through "QTM Conference".
Overall, the experience has been positive. This is our first time participating in an exhibition at QTM 2021. We were able to meet many professionals in the tourism

It is the first opportunity to promote Italy in the country and it is a good turnout for the first edition. We have met some interesting tour operators to promote Italy as a destination. The highlight this year is to restart travelling and to feel safe. Hoping to come next year with tour operators from Italy.

I am excited to be here in Qatar as it is the first opening of Qatar to the rest of the world; especially after the pandemic, we grabbed the chance to be here to introduce the island to the rest of the world. Due to the fact that this is the first edition, we are very pleased with the outcome and expect this exhibition to become more and more attractive to the rest of world in the coming years. Very much excited to be part of the next edition.

For the first year, it is a very good exhibition. We are excited to participate in the next edition and bring additional hotels from our group to participate in a bigger space. The biggest highlight is the mix of countries and nationalities, it has a bit of everything to make it complete.

We had a very positive experience, this is our first participation in an exhibition in Qatar, the embassy was established in 2019, shortly after which the pandemic broke out, and this was really one of our first reaches to the public, since many people visited our booth and showed a lot of interest in Haiti and wanted to know more, so our participation gives the public an opportunity to learn more about Haiti.

The first edition of the Travel & Tourism exhibition in Qatar was a complete success and a smooth start. We are a brand-new destination in Qatar. I find it very interesting to be in QTM, as we can transfer our culture, tourism, and business opportunities to everyone. We are very pleased to be participating in the QTM second edition and look forward to it.

We are engaging the market; we are learning to connect with it; our booth during the opening ceremony and the conference was busy; we gratefully appreciate the opportunity and platform to be able to showcase Rwanda as an emerging country social market for tourism.

We are very pleased to participate in the exhibition, it is very interesting and a nice experience, we met a lot of people and made a lot of contacts. We enjoyed the conference session that presented Russian tourism and the turnout was very good, we had many people who came as the right audience and we are happy with that. We hope that next year we can bring more companies!

My experience so far is good, we are participating with QTM together for the first time and the Qatar market is one of the priority markets for Azerbaijan, for this reason we really wanted to participate in QTM from the first edition. It is important for us to be here to position the country and to show to the Qatari Nationals and other citizens living in Qatar that Azerbaijan is a place to visit. The biggest highlight for me are the panel sessions with dedicated sessions for Azerbaijan to present the country.
