Qatar Tourism (QT) has launched a brand-new Tourism Hotline, a 24-hour service providing information on events and attractions in the country as well as updates on the national tourism sector.

Due to the ease of restrictions, the gradual return to some normalcy and reintroduction of frequent travel, Qatar has taken this step to boost tourism and attract more visitors while helping them make the most of their stay. The hotline offers increased accessibility to crucial information about the current happenings in the area, empowering visitors to plan out their visit in their own personal way. Additionally, it provides an important contribution to the national tourism sector’s development, playing a crucial role in supporting stakeholders, partners and investors with key information and updates that will help strengthen the tourism infrastructure and diversity of the country.

Commenting on the launch of the hotline, Berthold Trenkel, QT Chief Operating Officer, said: “Qatar Tourism’s unveiling of its Tourism Hotline is a marked step in providing service excellence to the country’s visitors and residents. The hotline will help refine Qatar’s existing offerings and assist visitors, residents and businesses in making informed decisions about their interactions and experiences with the country’s tourism products and services.”

The hotline, which can be reached at 106, is one of many projects by QT that have been designed to assist tourists and residents alike to make the most of their time in the country. The Visit Qatar mobile app, for instance, has also been launched to enhance and widen the digital transformation strategy and has been updated to include a range of languages. The application is a handy guide for anyone visiting Qatar to plan out their itinerary and tailor their stay to their personal preferences. Using cloud-based Adobe Experience Manager capabilities, the application utilises data to tailor user experiences and guides visitors to the country’s many attractions such as its heritage sites, adventure, retail and the rich culinary scene, in addition to the range of events always on offer. The application also offers a 360-degree view of each of the country’s iconic sites. ✤
