Emirates Airline To Sponsor Dubai Shopping Festival

Emirates Airline will be a major sponsor of the fifteenth edition of the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF), which takes place from January 28th until February 28th.  More than 6,000 retail outlets and about 50 malls will participate in the DSF over 32 days.  There will also be over 150 regional and international events showcased at the festival, including shows, concerts, and musicals. 

Ahmed Khoory, a senor executive with Emirates Airline, said “Emirates has been a leading sponsor of the Dubai Shopping Festival since the event’s inception.  Throughout the years, DSF has gone from strength to strength gaining increased global recognition to become one of the world’s premier shopping events.”  Khoory said the thousands of international visitors who flock to Dubai to take part in the shopping and leisure activities bring millions of dirham’s in revenue to the emirate. Mr. Khoory is Emirate’s Senior Vice President for Commercial Operations, Gulf, Middle East, and Iran.
