The 2020 edition of the annual Shop Qatar will take place from 7-31 January, with discounts in malls across the country and as well as raffle draws featuring car and cash prizes worth up to QAR 2 million, Qatar National Tourism Council announced today.





Shop Qatar includes a vibrant schedule of luxury fashion and entertainment events, along with travel deals and visa facilitation throughout the festival.

QNTC in collaboration with Qatar Airways has partnered with 10 malls across the country along with The Pearl Qatar to host fashion shows, makeup classes and family entertainment events, while offering discounts of up to 70% on a range of consumer goods.

The raffle draws will be held weekly, offering shoppers spending QAR 200 at any of the participating retailers a chance to win 6 cars and cash prizes worth over QAR 2 million.

Shop Qatar is part of a wider program to promote Qatar as an international travel destination with diverse offerings and products across retail, entertainment and culture. The festival is part of QNTC’s efforts to stimulate the economy and promote the retail sector by encouraging stakeholder participation in building products for residents and visitors alike. The festival’s 2019 edition had over 3,000 stores participating, sales vouchers worth QAR 58.4 million.

Running until the end of January, Shop Qatar will showcase the work of local and regional designers, with a series of fashion shows including one for children, makeup masterclasses with celebrity artists and influencers, and will culminate in Chinese New Year celebrations. Mall activations, children’s entertainment shows, and a host of live music concerts featuring renowned Pakistani and Indian artists are set to wow audiences.

Fashionistas can catch a glimpse of the world’s latest couture and ready-to-wear fashions as designers such as Nicholas Jebran, Ahmed Talfeet, Laith Maalof, Bariş, Naja Saade, Toufic Al Hassan, and Amjad Al Adab showcase their 2020 Spring/ Summer collections at the opulent Al Hazm along with local designers including Waad, Soleil Abayas, Shaden, Al Dukan, Sarmad and Tamader Al Sultan.
