(7 January 2018)

The continued collaboration between Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), an agency of Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism) and its strategic partners and key sponsors have ensured that visitors to the 23rd edition of Dubai Shopping Festival get to enjoy a range of extraordinary experiences, that will further enhance the emirate’s position as a leading family tourism destination.

The latest edition of DSF, which commenced on 26 December, runs until 27 January. With retail sector entities playing a pivotal role in DSF 2018, a number of events and activations are run under three themed retail segments –Beauty & Perfume, Gold & Jewellery, and Apparel & Fashion. Further, thousands of retail outlets have added to the shopping excitement by offering amazing deals including discounts of between 25% to 75% on a range of merchandise.

Commenting on the long-standing partnership between DFRE and its Strategic Partners and Key Sponsors, Ahmed Al Khaja,  Chief Executive Officer, DFRE said: “The Dubai Shopping Festival has seen more than two decades of exciting growth from the time it set a benchmark for the retail sector in the region in 1996 to its current position as a major global attraction. Such a strong achievement would not have been possible without the solid cooperation between government and private sectors.”

 Year after year, the Dubai Shopping Festival has made a positive impact on different economic sectors in Dubai, and in 2018 we are confident that the flagship festival of Dubai’s annual retail calendar, will help keep up the momentum for retailers, and other business entities in the emirate. We expect to achieve this by offering shoppers an unbeatable combination of unique retail experiences, life-changing daily raffles and world-class entertainment drawn up in collaboration with our key partners, sponsors, and supporters. 
“With the 23rd edition of Dubai Shopping Festival well underway, we are truly grateful to our strategic partners and key sponsors for their unwavering commitment to ensure that the latest edition of the festival will also be a huge success,  providing residents and visitors even more reasons to celebrate and be rewarded when they shop in Dubai,” Mr. Al Khaja added.

For the festival’s 23rd edition, DFRE is supported by strategic partners Emirates, The Dubai Mall, Majid Al Futtaim Properties, AW Rostamani Group, Al Futtaim Group (Dubai Festival City), Nakheel Malls (Ibn Battuta Mall, Dragon Mart 1, Dragon Mart 2), Dubai Duty Free, ENOC, Al Zarooni Group (Mercato), Meraas and Etisalat. Additionally, the key sponsors of DSF 2018 are Visa, Emirates NBD, and Jumbo Group, and key supporters of DSF are Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group and Dubai Shopping Malls Group.

We know many of the visitors that are traveling with Emirates to Dubai during this period are coming to exclusively take advantage of DSF’s offers or simply enjoy their winter break, and this further establishes Dubai as a center that caters to a broad range of tastes and activities.”
