A Wealth Of Opportunities
In less than a decade, Qatar has managed to demonstrate to the world that it is a place that is ripe with potential, opportunity and, more importantly, ambition, to emerge as a global leader in the field of sustainable development, urban growth and economic progression.
With a number of multi-million development projects, and under the guidance of the Qatar Vision 2030, the country provides an ideal environment for investors, residents and visitors to experience a contemporary lifestyle that is embedded in progressive thinking yet inspired by its rich heritage and key traditional values.
Qatar is witnessing a surge in property and infrastructure development, with such impressive projects as Lusail City, the rail network and The Pearl-Qatar. With the country connected to the rest of the world through its stunning new Hamad International Airport, and with the FIFA World Cup 2022 looming in the horizon, Qatar is set to continue its rapid ascend as a global leader for decades to come.
As a hospitality subsidiary wholly owned by UDC, Hospitality Development Company (HDC) aims to develop, own and operate world-class hospitality businesses, locally and regionally.
HDC achieves that by building strong, reliable partnerships with innovative and pioneering brands in the hospitality industry that reflect the company’s vision and meet its longterm ambition.
By bringing several established international franchises - from places such as Paris, New York and Beirut - to The Pearl-Qatar, HDC managed to transform the island into one of the most exclusive, fashionable and sophisticated destinations in the world.
For the past seven years, the company formed alliances with a number of reputed brands such as Alison Nelson’s Chocolate Bar, MEGU, Burj Al Hamam, Al Tabkha, Isla & Wafflemeister.
Going forward, HDC will grow through the development of its existing hospitality brand relationships, and through ventures into strategic acquisitions. This combination of organic and non-organic growth will provide optimal investment diversification.
