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, â€œWe 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.â€
