The show is organised by Ithraa, Oman’s inward investment and export development agency, in partnership with the Sultanate’s Public Authority for SME, Riyada.
The exhibition has been designed to introduce Omani SMEs working in the craft, fashion and food sector to the Qatari market, as well as boost the Sultanate’s exports of jewellery, food, cosmetics and fragrances.
“We ran the same show last year in Doha and that proved to be highly successful, with participating firms winning a sizeable amount of business,” al-Adawi added.
Held under the patronage of Mohammed bin Ahmed bin Twar Al kuwari, First Vice-Chairman, Qatar Chamber of Commerce, the response to participate in the four-day show from Oman’s creative industries sector has been highly favourable.
“Market research suggests there are clear opportunities for Omani craft, fashion and food businesses to break into Qatar’s sophisticated and lucrative market” said Omani ambassador Najeeb bin Yahya al-Balushi.
“GCC consumers understand the importance of provenance and are searching for authentic products, whether that is with food or in the personal care product space,” the envoy noted.
