(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) Doha will host the first major international tourism conference of its kind in Qatar - Tourism in Tomorrow's World: What the future holds for tourism in the region on 23rd and 24th February 2014.

The event is organized by Stenden University Qatar (SUQ) in conjunction with Al Rayyan Tourism Investment Company (ARTIC), part of Sheikh Faisal bin Qassim al Thani's Al Faisal Holding group, and the European Tourism Futures Institute (ETFI), and in partnership with the Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA)

The two-day conference will cover every sector of tourism and hospitality - from "family" tourism to business tourism, cultural, sun and beach, sports, education, health and environmental tourism

It will address relevant cultural topical issues such as that of political tourism following the Arab Spring, as well as new industry developments and trends in the GCC and factors which can affect tourism in the region

The purpose of the conference is to underline the importance of tourism for Qatar and the region, focusing on Qatar's recent tourism growth and showcasing its authentic culture, identity and heritage and focus on sustainability

Hassan Al-Ibrahim, the Director of Strategy Development and the head of the tourism development committee at QTA, said: "QTA's strategic priorities include developing the tourism sector through stakeholder engagement and inclusion in implementing the national tourism strategy 2030 and hence we have developed strong relationship with Stenden University Qatar through various initiatives." He added: "Sectorial human capital development is also a priority of QTA.

With the amount of hotels and other tourism products and services currently under development, Qatar's hospitality industry will be able to offer young people ambitious roles in international groups to provide a meaningful career path for life." Recently a team of SUQ students and faculty members participated in the international Bahrain Universities' Model United Nations conference in November 2013.

Two teams of SUQ students - Team High Flyer and Team Fast Rider - also took part in the Bedaya Shell Enterprise Business Simulation Challenge, where Team High Flyer placed third out of nine participating universities

The students will be honored for their achievements in a ceremony to be held later this month.
