Events Sessions

As an American visiting the State of Qatar, I had tons of questions regarding the Qatari culture (and Arab culture in general). With the help of Amal and her team, Embrace Doha catered to our every need from business etiquette to Family culture. Every session they conducted with us was very professional, friendly and inviting. They allowed “Open questions” and never once got offended with our questions. They are very passionate about what they do and I highly recommend Embrace Doha for all of your cultural needs, whether you are a visitor or live in the country. 10 Stars!

Embrace Doha is a fantastic initiative created by an amazing Local founder. I'm proud of the fact that they not only help spread local culture and awareness, but also help represent Qatar in a positive light. Embrace Doha helps expats especially feel at home here. I'm proud that ILQ and QTips can support their initiatives. A great company with a caring heart.

As a Qatari woman, I am so proud of Amal AlShammari and Embrace Doha, she’s breaking the barriers between tourists and locals by providing full cultural experience that helps them to understand the Qatari life style. This project is definitely adding a lot of value to tourism in Doha, and open a door to the world.

I joined the Embrace Doha Ramadan introduction session at Souq Waqif in my free time and really enjoyed it and added value to my life. So, some might say, a modern Danish furniture retailer and traditional Qatari lifestyle, a traditional local with his falcon next to modern armchairs, Arabic coffee served to customers? How does that work together?  Well, it does. I believe, it is our responsibility to honor Qatari lifestyle and to merge the best of two worlds and to create something new, to inspire and to get inspired.

We worked closely on the Qatar National Day project at Katara in 2015; and the collaboration between both our organisations showed great success at the execution of the event. Embrace Doha delivered an outstanding event that attracted a huge crowd and engaged with families like no other. We are very proud to have sponsored Henna Ahalha as we saw the true meaning of cultural exposure in the appropriate platform.
