2nd Annual Smart Parking Qatar — Monday

We all know that the parking situation in Doha is a bit of a hassle for commuters. Thankfully the Smart Parking Conference aims to target this issue!

The 2nd Annual Smart Parking Qatar conference will be discussing the 2017 parking master plan that will be issued by the Ministry of Transport & Communication.

With five years to Qatar World Cup 2022, the requirement for adequate car parks and parking facilities is increasing exponentially, so the conference will also aim to identify the different opportunities available for the FIFA World Cup 2022.
