Universal Management Group has signed a management agreement with Hilton Worldwide to open the Hilton Garden Inn Doha C Ring Road in 2018 in Qatar’s capital.

“As one of the world’s commercial capitals, Doha is a key market for our growing presence in the Middle East, with its continuously evolving visitor offering and infrastructure," Hilton Worldwide VP development Middle East & North Africa Carlos Khneisser said in a statement. The company, he said, has "a multibrand growth strategy" for the region.
