The partnership with Msheireb Properties, the real estate subsidiary of the state owned Qatar Foundation, has been set to last three years and is part of a move to globalise the Design Miami/ brand. The fair will be set up in the Doha Design District
The fair’s chief executive Jennifer Roberts pointed at Qatar's emergence as a global art hub : “As Design Miami continues to grow globally, we welcome this partnership with Msheireb Properties and look forward to bringing our vision to Doha. Qatar’s capital has grown immensely and is an emerging destination for art and design.”
The partnership coincides with the announcement of the second edition of Design Miami/Podium in Shanghai that will take place in November.
