Experiential Planner, a multi-channel business platform that connects Indian planners of outbound MICE and destination weddings with international vendors, along with event partner Scoop Brand Holding and media partner EVENTFAQS, hosted a webinar on ‘MICE and Destination Weddings in Qatar’ as part of its RE-BOOTCAMP. An intimate panel discussion on September 29, 2020 saw Indian MICE and wedding planners engaging in conversation with Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC) and key hoteliers from Qatar to explore opportunities.
The webinar was broadcast on the official Facebook page of EVENTFAQS Media from 4-5 pm IST and had in excess of 650+ views on the day of the event. The aim of the webinar was to let the industry know that Qatar is a safe destination and it is investing in creating a safe environment for travellers.
The virtual event had speakers like Reema Sanghavi, Founder and MO, Maximus Mice and Media Solutions Pvt Ltd; Mahesh Shirodkar, Managing Director, Tamarind Global, OumPradutt, Founder and Managing Director, Phase 1 Events; Sandeep Shewale, Director of Sales, MarsaMalazKempinski, The Pearl-Doha, and Sarfaraz S. Shaikh, Multi-Property Director of Sales, JW Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel, along with Karishma Hundalani, Director, TMF dialogue marketing and Ahmed Al Obaidli, Director of Exhibitions, QNTC as hosts.
Qatar has now opened its borders to international tourists and conducted the webinar to let the MICE and Wedding industry organisers know about the opportunities. Doha has emerged a hotspot for Indian weddings and the opening of borders could result in re-instating Tourism and social events. Hotels now have a lot of flexibility in cancellation policies; moreover, the hotels in Qatar have started getting queries for 2021 first quarter as gatherings of up to 40 people are now being permitted.
“Talking about the COVID situation, people are hesitant to travel out of their safety zones. Safety needs to be the prime proposition as far as guests are concerned,” said Mahesh Shirodkar.
“As a destination, we promise to listen to our stakeholders and keep the communication transparent all the time,” commented Ahmed Al Obaidli.
