Katara Cultural Village has announced that the second edition of the International Amber Exhibition will be held on January 8 to 11 at Hall 12. Exhibitors from 13 Arab and foreign countries, in addition to representatives of the International Amber bodies, will take part in the exhibition.

There will be more than 90 stalls and a display platform. The Katara amber exhibition is the first exhibition dedicated to amber in Qatar and it's the second-largest international exhibition on amber ore after the international exhibition, which is held in Poland.

General Manager of Katara Cultural Village Dr. Khaled bin Ibrahim Al Sulaiti, said "Since the launch of the first edition in January 2019, Katara International Amber Exhibition has held its rightful place as a permanent international forum for amateurs and traders in the amber industry. We have opened a permanent headquarters for amber at one of our buildings at the Cultural Village and have also signed a set of agreements to establish training and educational workshops about the amber industry under the supervision of international experts and to review specifications and standards in cooperation with international institutions specializing in amber."

The general supervisor of the Katara International Amber Exhibition Khalid Abdul Raheem Al Sayed, said the second edition will witness the functioning of a special headquarters for amber at Katara.

"headquarters for amber will allow for exchange of experiences between producers, amateurs and customers," said Khalid Al Sayed.

The exhibition is held in the morning and evening and enjoys wide media coverage, which will help take the message to all amber lovers and those interested in this trade around the world.
