Qatar remains steadfast in its commitment to fostering growth and attracting investment. In a recent press release by Invest Qatar regarding its participation at MIPIM 2024, the esteemed real estate event in Cannes, France, Qatar reaffirmed its dedication to enhancing its business landscape and consolidating its position as a vibrant hub for investors. This unwavering commitment is evident through a series of reforms aimed at bolstering the appeal of the investment environment.

A significant policy shift underscores Qatar's determination to attract foreign investment and individuals. Through Council of Ministers Resolution No. 28 of 2020, Qatar has opened its real estate market to non-Qataris, signaling a bold initiative. This transformative policy allows non-Qataris to own and utilize properties within 25 designated areas. It extends ownership rights to various property types, including offices, shops, units, and villas within residential complexes, as well as enabling real estate development on designated plots of land. Additionally, it offers an array of residency benefits, such as residence permits, free healthcare, and education, granted based on specific investment criteria.

Visitors to BYH 2024 can anticipate engaging in the second edition of Gulf Housing Week and immersing themselves in an expansive international pavilion, showcasing exhibitors from over 10 countries. BYH has swiftly emerged as a focal point for showcasing the offerings of both local SMEs and international industry experts to consumers in Qatar. The exhibition has evolved into a crucial platform for Qatari citizens to efficiently leverage government provisions for land development, housing vouchers, and loans.

In addition to fostering business growth, Build Your House Exhibition 2024 will have a significant impact on nurturing the next generation of designers in Qatar. Annually, BYH hosts a competition for interior design students from VCUarts University – the Competition Educational Partner, providing a platform for young talent to showcase their creativity. Three finalists receive invaluable industry exposure as their designs are showcased at the exhibition, offering them a unique opportunity to connect with professionals and gain recognition.

Build Your House Exhibition 2024, scheduled from May 13 to May 16, 2024, at the QNCC, is rapidly filling up with exhibitors and sponsors, with only 5% of spaces remaining. Exhibitors are encouraged to secure their space early to ensure participation in this edition, as Gulf Housing Week is expected to attract key decision-makers from across the GCC. Participation in the conference will be crucial for maximizing business opportunities. The exhibition will be opened to the public daily from 10 am to 10 pm.
