DOHA - The World Confederation of Businesses (WORLDCOB) has chosen the Qatari city of Doha as the venue for THE BIZZ AMEA Awards. To be held on Nov 24-27, the awards gather and recognise leading businesses from different regions that contribute to the daily growth of their local communities as well as the world economy.

Doha was selected from over 14 destinations, edging out Kazakhstan and Singapore, for the rights to host the awards. The city is estimated to receive executives representing around 100 companies from more than 50 countries.

THE BIZZ AMEA Awards was established by WORLDCOB in 2005 to offer to the global business community a range of benefits that further their development. The awards recognise standouts in their respective regions, with the overarching aim being networking and learning among association members through various activities.

"Qatar is a vibrant destination with rich offerings across culture, hospitality and retail. We are pleased to showcase the destination to newer audiences through events such as THE BIZZ AMEA Awards, which combines cutting edge services and traditional hospitality and offers an unparalleled experience," said Akbar Al Baker, secretary general of Qatar National Tourism Council and GCEO of Qatar Airways.

"With a growing portfolio of global business events, Qatar has hosted over 500 global business events - including conferences, congresses, and symposia, Qatar is an increasingly popular destination for those seeking rich, novel experiences rooted in tradition."

Past editions of the awards have previously been held in Paris, New York, Hong Kong, Rome, Hawaii, Monte Carlo, San Francisco, Amsterdam, and Las Vegas among others.
