Discussions will aim to enhance the development of licensing solutions that will greatly improve the experience of Qatar’s future tourism sector investors.

According to recent QTA figures, 97 tourism establishments were licensed by the Authority in 2015, including hotels, tour operators and destination management companies, in addition to the renewal of 167 licenses.

QTA has also licensed a total of 241 exhibitions and events, including charity events, in addition to licensing 90 exhibition organising companies.

The forum is intended to provide a channel for QTA to ensure that the new process alleviates any concerns or pressures they may be experiencing and reflects their needs.
