dmg events has signed a strategic partnership with Qatar-based NeXTfairs to run The Big 5 Construct Qatar and INDEX Design Qatar in the Gulf state in Q3 2023. Scheduled to take place from September 25 to 27, 2023, this represents the latest move in the dmg events regional portfolio expansion strategy. The return of these two internationally recognised dmg flagship events also marks the start of an alliance with local event organiser NeXTfairs.

"The time is right to accelerate opportunities for the regional construction and interiors industry by bringing back two of our most successful flagship brands to this dynamic market. Together with NeXTfairs, we are also paving the way for the launch of other industry-critical events that will support Qatar's pro-business tourism proposition and economic growth strategy," said Matt Denton, president, dmg events.

Our combined decades of market expertise and initial two-show offering will provide a firm foundation on which to accelerate stakeholder engagement and strengthen Doha's appeal as a world-class events destination."
