Portugal showcases luxury furniture brands in Doha expo in first time participation

Mar 28, 2022 by Built Your House Expo

Doha, March 28, 2022: Portugal for the first time is taking part in a furniture show in Qatar, Doha, showcasing best-in-class luxury branded products at the `Build Your House’ expo to be held during March 28-30, 2022 at the Qatar National Convention Centre, stand I 26.

 

In a statement, the Portuguese Association of Wood and Furniture Industries (AIMMP), under the auspices of which Portuguese companies will showcase their products, said the participation aims to pave way for enhanced exports of wood and furniture products to Qatar.

 

“Portugal already is on a strong wicket of growth in exports to Qatar, which grew 68 per cent during 2020-2021 compared to 59 per cent in the corresponding previous period. We believe that there is tremendous untapped potential for further expansion in the wood and luxury furniture products in Doha in line with the country’s surging economic growth,” said Vitor Poças, President of AIMMP.

 

The debut Doha participation is also consistent with the policy of AIMMP and the Portuguese wood and furniture sector to showcase the country’s eclectic array of branded European products in the Middle East region being part of the Inter Wood & Furniture strategy, an internalization program of the sector managed by AIMMP.

 

Over 21 top-notch brands from Portugal will be taking part at the Doha show, looking to market their products as well as find distribution partners in Qatar to enhance market footprints:

“We are excited about our debut participation in Doha and we look forward to building the presence of Portuguese furniture and wood products here where there is high demand for European made furniture. There is strong affinity for Portuguese wood and furniture products in Qatar already and we believe it is time that we endeavor further to expand presence,” said Vitor Poças.

 

AIMMP said Portugal has been very active in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) markets and in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) in general highlighting the country’s ubiquitous product range in the wood, furniture and construction sector. “We believe that the post-pandemic market resurgence in Qatar and the region bodes well for European manufacturers in the interior and home furnishing industry since traditionally there is a high preference for luxury brands from Europe in these markets,” concludes Vitor Poças, President of AIMMP – the Portuguese Association of Wood and Furniture Industries.
