Qatar Tourism will be located at booth 1305 at Seatrade Cruise Global 2021
Qatar Tourism will outline new local tourism projects at Seatrade Cruise Global plus provide an update on the Grand Cruise Terminal under construction in Doha, which will have the capacity to host two megaships.

‘We are continuing to expand our tourism offer and are excited to introduce guests to the best of Qatari hospitality,’ declared Qatar Tourism COO Berthold Trenkel. ‘The U.S. market is an increasingly important market for our inbound tourism, and we want to raise awareness about the extensive developments that are well underway and introduce visitors from around the world to the very best of Qatar.’

Grand Cruise Terminal

Located in central Doha near the Museum of Islamic Art and Souq Waqif, the Grand Cruise Terminal will offer passengers a view of the West Bay Skyline on their arrival.

In addition to being able to host two megaships simultaneously, it will possess various attractions including an aquarium and art gallery.

Appealing to US travellers 

Qatar Tourism will highlight experiences that US tourists can expect to come across in Qatar. Over the past 18 months, the country has launched new tourism experiences, restaurants, theme parks, and football stadiums, and is introducing more than 100 hotels and hotel apartments. A calendar of events is also currently underway in the country as it readies for hosting the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

Six million visitors by 2030

Qatar Tourism aims to attract six million visitors a year to the country by 2030.

Some 190,000 cruise passengers visited the destination in 2019; over 5,000 were US travellers.
