“One Year New” for Dubai Calendar at ATM 2012

altDubai Events and Promotions Establishment (DEPE) today hosted guests and visitors at Arabian Travel Market where the first anniversary of the Dubai Calendar, along with the 15th edition of Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS), were celebrated on stand.  These two major milestones were marked by the cutting of a cake by Ibrahim Saleh, Festivals Coordinator General and Deputy CEO, DEPE. Also on stand to mark the achievement were DEPE senior management and staff, as well as DEPE partners and stakeholders, including Dubai Festival City, Emaar Shopping Malls, Mercato Shopping Mall and Dubai Shopping Malls Group (DSMG).

Launched one year ago at ATM, 2011, the Dubai Calendar - the official listing of all events taking place across the Emirate of Dubai for the whole year - works as a multi-faceted vehicle to promote Dubai’s strengths as the region’s leading events destination, build its events sector, and support the city’s economy.
Ibrahim Saleh said: “We are proud to celebrate today two important milestones in the history of DEPE. With a portfolio of some of the most recognized festival brands in the region, DEPE continues to be one of the main pillars of Dubai’s success and a boost to its economy. Our events and festivals attract millions to Dubai every year, thus generating billions of dirhams annually to the local economy.”

He added: “The Dubai Calendar has far exceeded expectations in the short time since its launch. We imagined that the calendar would be successful, but to consider the incredible milestones that have been achieved over the past 12 months, speaks to its value and significance, both locally and internationally.”

The Establishment also took the opportunity to celebrate Dubai Summer Surprises – the region’s most awaited summer entertainment and shopping event – which was launched 14 years ago, and has since charmed the lives of thousands of families and visitors from around the world. The fifteenth edition runs from June 14 to July 14, 2012.
Saleh explained: “Since its launch in 1998, DSS has transformed the way we experience summer in Dubai. More than just a tourist event, DSS has been credited with revitalizing Dubai’s economy throughout the summer season. The initiative supports the events industry, while sparking growth across the retail sector. We are delighted to be here today to celebrate this milestone.”
The Dubai Events and Promotions Establishment stand is located in Hall 3. The show runs from April 30-May 1 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
