As top retailers launch their Fall/Winter 2018 fashion collections in stores in Dubai, UAE, this month, the city’s retail scene continues to thrive due to its position as a world-class shopping destination.
With a robust and extensive retail calendar managed by Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), an agency of the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism), retailers in Dubai are given several opportunities to market their collections.
Many international brands have chosen Dubai to have a presence in the Middle East.
In addition to the strong retail sector, Dubai’s ongoing tourism efforts continue to draw visitors from across the globe who are keen on experiencing everything the city has to offer.
For the fourth year running, Dubai has ranked fourth among the world’s most popular destinations for international travellers according to MasterCard’s Global Destination Cities Index 2018. With the city welcoming 15.79 million overnight visitors last year and ranking a projected growth rate of 5.5 per cent, Dubai is expected to witness another year of steady expansion in 2018, it said.
Given Dubai’s multicultural mix of nationalities, diverse businesses, futuristic landscape, it gives the brand both global and local exposure through international and GCC tourists as well as UAE residents. TradeArabia News Service
