According to the reports, BYH 2020 included 120 exhibitors, attracted over 8,600 visitors (90 percent of whom were Qataris), and conducted over 30 workshops and seminars. An estimated 10,000 people are expected to attend this year’s three-day event.

NeXTfairs stated that BYH 2021 will have a Technology Area, as well as seminars, live demos, and an awards ceremony. It also provides a one-of-a-kind platform for local and international businesses to display and promote their goods and services.

Further, visitors will be able to gain a better understanding of the Qatari industry, learn about new products, take advantage of special offers and promotional packages, select qualified contractors, consultants, and suppliers, identify current trends and expected growth, and share knowledge with experts.

“The second edition of Build Your House will build on the immense success of the inaugural edition, the first of its kind exhibition in Qatar that served as a conduit between various segments of the house building industry with Qatari nationals,” the company noted.

“BYH 2020 received the patronage of HE the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior and unwavering support from various Ministries and government bodies; exhibition space fully booked; both visitors and exhibitors registered high rates of satisfaction levels; an estimated value of deals worth $109 million (QR400 million) was generated,” the organizer said on Visit Qatar, the official social media account of Qatar Tourism.

According to NeXTfairs, the event also provides guests with information on crucial aspects of house construction, such as design and “criteria for selecting the consultant and contractor,” and so on.

Further, during the seminars and workshops, professionals from several ministries, government organizations, and industries are expected to share their experience in building, designing, and decorating homes, in addition to providing legal and financial assistance.
