Qatar Convention Centre

One thing about the summer is that you go about six months without going outside too much, so when things are being constructed you don't bother checking to see how it's doing and then when the weather cools down you can see all the advancement that happened. The other evening I was in West Bay and decided to take a walk to the newly opened Convention Centre just behind City Centre Mall.

Nice building!

The place was huge, I think it's longer than the mall. At the time there was a 'Made in China' convention and that only took up one of five convention halls.

Now is there a reason to bother going there if there isn't a convention going on? The centre does have a small Lina's Cafe if you like Lina's. It's on the side near Al Fardan Towers.

With the new convention centre I suppose they'll now be shutting down the Exhibition Centre near Katara, which is a bit of a shame as a would sometimes meet friends there at the Costa Coffee.

Now on to explore more exciting areas. Over the next couple of weeks I plan to see the new park by the Sheraton, check and see if Souq Al Wakra is finished (it's been about 6 months since I've been there), see what's happened at Lusail, and hopefully hit a time when the traffic is good to wander around the Pearl. There's always something new in Qatar.
