Expo 2023 Doha marks the first time a city in the Middle East and North Africa region is hosting an A1 International Horticultural Exhibition. Held under the theme Green Desert, Better Environment, the six-month-long exposition aims to promote sustainable innovations and combat desertification.

Expo 2023 Doha is all set to bring together thought leaders and thinkers of the industry to shed light on how we can better our environment and develop our economies sustainably and with more green spaces.

Expo 2023 Doha will take place in the picturesque Al Bidda Park, overlooking the Arabian Gulf. The six-month event will run from October 2 to March 28 and offer visitors rich experiences, from beautiful gardens to art and diverse cuisines.

The event will offer an unparalleled opportunity for tourists to experience the rest of Qatar as well.

Visitors can use the Visit Qatar website and app, which are available in eight languages, to learn about events such as these and more.

Qatar Tourism’s Qatar Calendar brings together all the biggest and most exciting events taking place across the country so that visitors have all the information they need at their fingertips. Monthly editions of the Qatar Calendar will be available throughout Expo 2023.

Qatar Airways Holidays has also launched flight-and-hotel packages for the period of Expo 2023. By choosing an all-inclusive package through Qatar Airways Holidays, travellers will secure their flights and accommodations to enjoy the immersive world of Expo 2023 Doha.

As the Official Strategic Partner, Qatar Airways is committed to facilitating a seamless travel experience for international guests, showcasing Qatar’s signature hospitality and extending a happy welcome to all destinations into one hub at Expo 2023 Doha.”
