Shopping Festivals to boost tourism in Dubai

Larger and more frequent shopping bonanzas may play a role in boosting tourism in Dubai , sources have said. Hoteliers, mall managers and tourism officials have been working together to develop an incentive package to encourage tourists to choose Dubai.

The Dubai Shopping Festival in 2006/2007 attracted 3.5 million visitors, and it is believed that a larger event will be planned this year to encourage more people to visit Dubai.

Essa Ibrahim, Chairman of the Burjuman Centre said, “We are talking about how to encourage more people to come here to Dubai. The retail sector can play a large role. A lot of people come to the Dubai Shopping Festival and it has been very successful in promoting tourism.”
