(Dubai) – Millions of residents and visitors from around the world are set to carry home wonderful memories of Dubai and its retail magic, the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF), which concludes its 18th edition after 32 days of offering the best in shopping, winning and entertainment.
The DSF 2013 lived up to its promise of staging the most exciting activities and offering the best shopping experience for the whole family, inspired by the theme ‘One World, One Family, One Festival,’ while all along keeping true to its marketing slogan ‘Dubai at its Best.’
“DSF is one of many government-driven initiatives based on the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, that has helped put Dubai in the headlines across the world.
DSF 2013 featured varied entertainment like children’s events, fashion shows, street performers from around the world, daily fireworks, concerts, and numerous cultural events reflecting the emirate’s multicultural character. The festival encouraged government and private sectors to work closely together and it was this spirit of collaboration that has helped come up with innovative events as well as the mega raffles to ensure that the DSF is a resounding success.
