It’s the Dubai Shopping Festival Season! The largest shopping and entertainment extravaganza in the Middle East is happening soon, so mark your calendar.
The 2017 Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) is one of Dubai’s premiere events and is now celebrating its 22nd anniversary in 2017. It will take place between December 26, 2016 and January 28, 2017, as the emirate presents visitors with world-class, immersive retail experiences.
This is a time to look for lots of deals and spending discounts…there’s no better way to shop! So, plan to be part of the region’s most beloved bargain hunting event of the year with plenty of special promotions and offers to attract shoppers and buyers, in addition to purchasing gifts. This is a great opportunity to continue your holiday season shopping you’ve no doubt already begun!
Throughout DSF 2017, shoppers will have the chance to win big at raffles at 27 malls across Dubai. “With AED 1 million in cash and prizes up for grabs, you won’t want to miss the DSF Community Mall promotion! To enter the Shop & Win cash prize draw, all you need to do is spend AED 200 at a participating mall to be entitled to one raffle coupon.”
Other raffles and rewards include the chance to win a shopping spree worth AED50,000, or even cars.
Aside from the shopping, there is much more to do, say the organizers, with the festival including nightly fireworks, music, shows, several entertainment and cultural programs for all to enjoy.
There’s no better place in the UAE to embark on some retail therapy than in Dubai and that is why tourists are drawn in from across the world every year.
Each year, DSF attracts more and more people, which helps in promoting tourism, but it is not all about shopping; it is far from it! So, come on out to feel the experience by taking part in this year’s festival with the organizers having added unique and innovative programs and events that are different every year to make DSF more alluring and entertaining, as noted visitdubaishoppingfestival.com.
