“Organising events such as Qatar Motor Show in partnership with the private sector forms part of our strategy to cultivate home-grown tourism products that attract regional and international visitors,” said Ahmed al-Obaidli, director of Exhibitions at Qatar Tourism Authority. “We recognise that tourism events, products and services can only be effective if they are built on partnerships with members of the private sector, and we are grateful to Commercial Bank for returning, year after year, to support Qatar Motor Show and help make it a resounding success.”
Commercial Bank has been part of Qatar Motor Show since 2011. Last year, the bank launched a vehicle loan campaign in conjunction with the show and offered “competitive offers” supported by a vehicle finance team that provided expert advice and instant approvals on loans for customer convenience.
Commenting on the sponsorship, Commercial Bank CEO Joseph Abraham said: “Commercial Bank is proud to be the supercar sponsor of Qatar Motor Show 2017. The bank has a long association with this exceptional Qatari event that showcases dozens of new car models every year, and we are again delighted to participate at the Qatar Motor Show and welcome thousands of local and expatriate fans to enjoy pure motoring indulgence.”
