As the strategic telecommunications partner of the celebrations at Katara Cultural Village, Vodafone Qatar began by deploying its 5G network in one of the country’s most popular leisure sites. As a result, thousands of Katara visitors were able to enjoy trialling the superfast, seamless connectivity that 5G coverage can provide – ahead of its commercial launch in 2019

Providing entertainment for families, gamers and culture-lovers alike, the “Vodafone Village” was a highlight of the Qatar National Day celebrations at Katara. Merging the best of culture and technology, it invited visitors to try traditional games, marvel at classic cars and partake in online gaming powered by Vodafone 5G.

On the 17 and 19 of December, 300 drones which lit up the night sky and an opera show called “Citizens and Expats: We Are One” – captivated spectators in a stunning harmony of music, lights and dance.
