The inaugural edition of Build Your House 2020 slated from March 2 to 4 at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) aims to enable Qataris to create their house and introducing them to the latest technologies and materials used in building, architecture, and interior designs.

“As Qatar endeavours to secure the welfare of its citizens, and supports their ambitions of building their houses, we are glad to organise this event, which gathers key players within the construction industry under one roof.

“It will help visitors to gain new contacts, discover best practice, high quality materials, and find solutions that build solid foundations for their family,” said NeXTFairs VP Abdul Aziz Saad al-Kaabi.

“We are honoured by the patronage of HE the Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al-Thani. It reflects the interest of the Qatari government towards events that support and boost Qatar’s economy.”

The government has allocated the largest budget for the processing of lands for citizens worth QR10bn to serve 2,487 housing vouchers for Qataris in 2020, al-Kaabi pointed out.

He said Build Your House 2020 showcases innovative, cost effective products, and plenty of options to design, build, and renovate houses. It is set to attract more than 200 exhibitors who will showcase the latest designs and innovations. The exhibition is divided into three sectors to provide a holistic customer experience. They will be able to discover design and consultancy, contracting, and suppliers, al-Kaabi said.

Visitors of the pavilion will also know more about the services of Kahramaa during the various stages of building, and will listen to advices and consultations by Kahramaa experts as part of its corporate social responsibility. Kahramaa experts will also explain the rules and regulations of electricity extensions and water installations to buildings and premises.

Raed Halawa, general manager at Tadmur Trading, Founding Partner of the exhibition, said: “Participating in Build Your House is the best way to reach out to the Qatari audience to showcase our new products.

“Tadmur Trading will be showcasing new tech in various products. This new format exhibition looks very promising; there’s a big need in Qatar to bring all the contractors, consultants and suppliers together under one roof.”
