The show will take place from January 26-29, 2011 at the Doha Exhibitions Centre. The show will kick off with an international convention, featuring top figures in the automotive scene who will speak about environmentally-friendly cars and future trends in the industry. The premier worldwide appearance of concept cars, super cars and futuristic models from the most renowned style centers and car manufacturers will be shown along with platform for the latest car models, commercial vehicles and sports utility vehicles coming on the market. “Qatar has emerged as a leading destination in the Gulf region for international exhibitions, conferences and special events,” said Ahmed Al Nuaimi.
