Qatar Airways is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC) to support a global start-up competition event hosted in Doha, an initiative led by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) inviting bright minds to pitch ideas toward accelerating Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) within the tourism industry.

The competition is aimed at global entrepreneurs whose ideas contribute toward the achievement of the United Nations 17 SDGs through state-of-the-art methods, governance structures and social impact initiatives, technological applications and other ways of chosen innovation. From July to October 2020, successful applicants are being selected based on pre-requisites such as innovative value-added solutions with the potential for international scalability. A final event is set to be held in Doha, Qatar in February 2021 with flights, transportation and accommodation being provided by Qatar Airways and QNTC for the finalists.

The UNWTO will advocate the best ideas to its Member States, Affiliate Members and investors, providing winners with a unique networking and matchmaking opportunity.

Innovators are encouraged to apply through the competition’s website: before 10 October 2020.
