The Business of… Dubai Shopping Festival

The Business of… Dubai Shopping Festival

With the Dubai Shopping Festival 2011 all set to begin, Kipp takes you through the inner workings of the retail extravaganza (and traffic nightmare).


January 16, 2011 4:23 by

Fireworks . DSF’s spectacular display of fireworks every night (this was back when Dubai had money) and the especially spectacular opening and closing ceremony fireworks at the creek was what Kipp looked forward to. But over the years the DSF has developed a considerable number of institutional attractions including:

1)      Global Village: a gigantic sprawling stretch of tents, stalls, amusement rides and food stalls celebrating the various cultures of the UAE. Alternatively, if it is local culture you are after, there is the Heritage Village where you can enjoy performances of local dances being put on and platefuls of local food being served.

2)      Raffles: because a ‘shopping’ festival should always reward its shoppers with the hope of winning a Lexus or kilos of gold everyday. The mega-raffle draws held on a daily basis are some of the biggest attractions of the DSF (not to mention the closest thing we in Dubai can get to gambling.)

Music: Aside from the impressive street performers that grace Dubai’s old (and most quaint, as far as Kipp is concerned) streets, like Al Rigga, Al Seef and Al Diyafah, the DSF plays host to some pretty good musical acts. This year, not only will there be concerts by international singers Amy Whinehouse, Tamer Housni, Shireen Abdulwahhab and Haifa Wehbe, but so too will the Skywards Dubai International Jazz Festival take place at JBR and (much to Kipp’s delight) at Dubai Media City.
