QBIC Tourism

QBIC Tourism

QTA is committed to fostering the active involvement of home grown talent in developing Qatar’s tourism sector. Besides facilitating private sector business opportunities, this is considered crucial to ensuring visitor experiences are embedded in, and reflective of, the country’s national culture and heritage.

An important recent initiative has been the launch of the Qatar Business Incubation Centre Tourism (QBIC Tourism), a specialised incubator for tourism start-ups backed by QTA and Qatar Development Bank, which enables SMEs and entrepreneurs to develop products and services that enhance the Qatar tourism experience by providing them with business development tools, seed funding and access to guidance from QTA decision-makers.

QBIC Tourism will support Qatar-based entrepreneurs with tourism-related business ideas, particularly in priority areas such as business events, urban and family entertainment, sports and recreation, or culture and heritage.
