Mall of Qatar to create 8,000 new job opportunities nationwide
The mega facility—worth QAR 5.4 billion—will help further advance Qatar’s economic development and diversification agenda
In the lead-up to the soft opening of Mall of Qatar, it has been revealed that the multi-billion QAR project—designed to serve as the region’s ultimate shopping, entertainment and dining destination—will generate about 8,000 new jobs nationwide. This impressive figure indicates that Mall of Qatar is set to play a pivotal role in the country’s economic growth and diversification; more importantly, it suggests that the project will help bring to life the Qatar National Vision 2030.
Mall of Qatar is opening its doors to the public in the last quarter of 2016. With a total area of over 500,000 sq. m, when fully operational the sprawling complex will boast over 500 shops including over 100 F&B restaurants — in the fit-out stage—each of which is expected to produce a number of employment opportunities spanning the areas of sales, management, operations, marketing, and the like.
“Mall of Qatar has been carefully designed to immerse visitors in a superior, unparalleled, and multi-sensory experience—one that perfectly blends the best in shopping, dining, and entertainment,” said Ahmad Al-Mulla, Mall of Qatar CEO. “our project won’t just redefine the traditional concept of a shopping center—it will also help create around 8,000 new job opportunities and thus serve as a springboard for Qatar’s economic growth.”
Mall of Qatar will capture the imagination of the entire nation as it opens the doors to its 500,000 sq. m innovative shopping concept with top-notch recreation and leisure options. This capital destination will premiere the world’s first resident troupe – offering mall-wide entertainment with 52 weeks of spectacular headline shows on a 360-degree custom developed revolving stage, as well as a multilevel Family Entertainment Complex integrating an international edutainment concept, advanced gaming machines and enthralling rides. The Mall’s encompassing experience completes with a 19-screen Cineplex inclusive of IMAX’s revolutionary laser projection and 12 channel immersive sound system on the region’s largest screen. The cinema will also feature the latest 4D projection technology screen, 7 VIP screens, an 8-lane bowling alley, and in-theatre gourmet food services.
Situated next to the award winning Al Rayyan FIFA 2022 stadium, the nation’s mall will be a jewel in Qatar’s National Vision 2030. Visitors will be dazzled by the 500 varied retail, dining and café options, conjointly with the 5-star AlRayyan hotel operated by Curio, a collection by Hilton, as every section of the Mall, from its distinctive facade to its exciting interiors, holds an element of surprise that will engender an experience like no other.
