Seasonal Honey Market at Souq Waqif from March 21
Souq Waqif, in cooperation with the Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC), will organise the ‘Seasonal Honey Market’ from March 21 to 27.
Souq Waqif has announced the opening of free registration for local firms and foreign companies specialised in the “production, supply and distribution of honey” in order to participate in the market.
The seasonal honey market aims to support national products, bolster trade and open new commercial channels for traders, entrepreneurs and investors in addition to supporting small and medium enterprises.
It is the largest specialised exhibition for honey of different kinds and offers local and Arab companies the opportunity to display and promote their products and goods related to the trade and production of honey.
As part of efforts to support and encourage companies to participate in the market, the organisers have coordinated with Qatar Airways (QA) to provide a 40 percent discount on air cargo charges. Gulf Warehousing Company is also offering free transportation of goods from shipping containers to warehouses as well as free storage for participants.
Participants will also benefit from free hotel accommodations and transportation from and to the airport in addition to entry visas. Discounts are also offered on car reservations. Participating companies can benefit from the special offers and discounts by visiting the link: bit.ly/honeymarket.
The participation of foreign companies in the market provides the local companies with an opportunity to find new markets for their honey products by entering into partnership agreements with them. Local entrepreneurs can also have insights into the expertise of participating countries, which will help them improve the quality of local honey products and strengthen their position in the foreign markets.
The seasonal honey market, which coincides with the Souq Waqif Spring Festival, is expected to be a great success thanks to its location in Souq Waqif, one of the leading touristic sites in Qatar.
