Staging a major success

Waagner-Biro is a world-renowned steel engineering company that designs spectacular architectural creations of steel and glass, bridges, stage equipment and special machinery.

Qatar has created an outstanding meeting hotspot with the Qatar National Convention Center (QNCC) in Doha. The main theatre has ultra-modern stage technology, designed, developed and installed by Waagner-Biro Stage Systems .

The QNCC, set to become the landmark of the region, has an extraordinary architectural structure based on the national symbol, the Sidra tree, a traditional source of shade in Qatar. The three main halls can accommodate 7,000 conference participants - in an auditorium for 2,500 people, a 500-seat theatre and a multi-purpose hall with room for another 4,000 seats.
Waagner-Biro’s contract included adjustable acoustic installations, stage and trap elevators, seating wagons, safety and other curtains, and hoists and other upper stage machinery, including the electronic Waagner-Biro CAT control system. The installation was supplied as a turnkey system, meeting the highest international requirements for safety and reliability.

With this project, which has drawn much international attention, Waagner-Biro has succeeded in further extending its market presence in the Arab world, and proving again its Austrian engineering skills and know-how.
