Adaptability of infrastructure and services
Objective: Promote the use of adaptable, efficient technologies and solutions to address demand variations before, during and after the FIFA World Cup 2022™.
With more than one million visitors forecast to arrive in Qatar during the tournament, a significant spike in demand for public infrastructure, transport, accommodation, food and other types of services is expected, particularly given the compact nature of the tournament.
Inherent to any event of this magnitude, Qatar faces the challenge of developing creative solutions to ensure market needs are met during the tournament, avoiding overdevelopment of sectors that may struggle after the tournament and enabling long term business growth.
At the same time, Qatar’s more compact tournament will create opportunities to efficiently meet increased demand through the centralised provision of some services and facilities.
