Dubai is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its shopping festival this year. The festival was inaugurated in 1996 for the first time by the government of Dubai; it is now going to complete 20 years in 2015. The event’s slogan is “SHOP AT THE BEST.”
A large number of tourists each year turns out for the festival which is held across the town; participants are drawn to Dubai not only by the shopping opportunities, but also by the lights decorations all over the metropolitan area.
DSF 2015 brings the largest shopping and entertainment extravaganza in the Middle East. As Dubai is a tax-free country, there are sure to be many spenders at retail outlets; in fact, the goods are sold without the burden of taxes at the point of sale. Duty-free shopping ensures each purchase is a bargain.
During the whole month of January, shoppers at all malls will be receiving amazing deals and promotions on items. Many purchases may come with additional gifts, accessories and other supplements. Shoppers that spend over a certain amount may receive extra discounts at the same store or other offers elsewhere.
Shopping, however, is not the only activity at the DSF 2015. Aside from the various stores offering tremendous discounts, making this a very worthwhile experience, there will even be other fun activities planned: exciting cultural events, musical and concerts and fashion events too, for all age groups to enjoy.
Raffle draws will also be part of the fun, and they are something to look forward to with prizes like fantastic holiday packages from five-star hotels and resorts, as well as activity packages for renowned amusement parks and fairgrounds. Prize draws will be held at the Global Village during the DSF event.
The DSF event makes this a favorite time of year with residents of the community as well as visitors from the surrounding areas to be in Dubai. Whether you are a business traveler, tourist, or a resident, Dubai’s annual shopping festival brings lots of excitement for the month and extends the holiday spirit throughout January.
