An eclectic array of clothes, toys, accessories, food, oud and other items are up for sale at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC) near City Center Mall this week.

The World Heritage Exhibition 2016 is a trade show that has attracted some 355 exhibitors from different countries, and runs through April 19.

Vendors could be seen hawking tea sets, carpets, dates, honey, nuts, abayas, thobes, nail polish and a variety of other goods yesterday.

Performers could be seen dancing and singing to a fairly empty audience on Thursday evening, though attendance will likely go up now that it’s the weekend.

Vendors appeared willing to bargain, but prices were fairly high compared to grocery store items.

The trade show is open from 11am to 10pm daily and from 3pm to 11pm on Fridays. For those interested in checking out the activity area with entertainment and traditional musical shows, they run daily from 3pm to 9pm.

Have you checked it out? Thoughts?
