VIP hospitality includes private entrance, valet parking, complimentary all-day dining, personal butler service, a souvenir program and daily start lists.

Doha, Feb. 14, 2019 – Al Shaqab, member of Qatar Foundation, has put together an unparalleled VIP guest experience to match the quality of the world-class equestrian events it is preparing to host.

The opening leg of the Longines Global Champions Tour (LGCT) 2019 series, a premier 5-star showjumping event which involves some of the world’s most renowned horses and athletes, is scheduled to take place from February 28 – March 2. The prestigious CHI AL SHAQAB 2019, a signature event of Al Shaqab and the only competition of its kind in the Middle East and Asia, will also be a three-day event taking place the weekend after, from March 7–9.

In addition to the usual attractions at the events, Al Shaqab is offering exclusive tickets to its purpose-built VIP area, in a setting that is suitable for royalty and distinguished guests.

Keeping in mind the prominence of the upcoming equestrian events, the seating within the VIP area has been conveniently sectioned as: VIP Boxes (first floor), VIP Table (front row, ground floor), and VIP Table (back row, ground floor). Tickets to these areas come in attractive packages, with several hospitality passes being included for a single price depending on the class of ticket purchased. Corporate organizations can treat their business partners or important customers to an exclusive and unique experience. Special packages are also available when the VIP hospitality options are purchased jointly for both events.

The CHI AL SHAQAB 2019 Local Organizing Committee (LOC) has taken steps to provide a truly memorable experience for participants and spectators. Holders of VIP tickets will enjoy a spectacular view that results from the close proximity of the VIP area to the showjumping area, while they can also look forward to several exclusive arrangements. The VIP areas feature attractions such as: private entrance, valet parking, complimentary all-day dining, a souvenir program, daily start lists and a personal butler service for guests in the VIP Boxes.

To help interested parties decide which option to choose, the VIP floor plan has been made accessible and is available on the Al Shaqab website ( For further information, please e-mail [email protected] or call 4454 7361.
