Under the Forever Dubai scheme, the 16,000 delegates, incoming tourists and UAE residents alike, can enter a grand raffle to win 25-kilos of gold. With every AED 200 spent at 1000 participating outlets citywide, shoppers will receive a raffle coupon that will allow them to enter the grand raffle draw on the 26th of September.
Dubai Duty Free, the fifth largest duty-free operation in the world in terms of turnover, revealed the details of their independent promotion for Forever Dubai.
“Dubai will be the focus of the business world for two weeks in September and it is important for Dubai Duty Free to play its part in welcoming so many distinguished overseas visitors,” said Colm McLoughlin, Managing Director of Dubai Duty Free.
The award-winning company has recognised the importance of ensuring the 16,000 delegates, officials, media personnel and visitors expected from the 184 countries of the World Bank Group receive a traditionally warm Arabian welcome when they arrive in Dubai from September 10th – September 25th.
The Finest Surprise Draw, one of Dubai Duty Free’s greatest successes will offer ticket holders the chance to win two very special cars during Dubai 2003. The first is an Audi A8, the official car of the event and the second is a black Ferrari GTA 456. Complementing the popular Finest Surprise promotion will be the Millennium Millionaire Promotion. The exciting promotion will offer 5000 ticket holders the chance to win US$ 1 million.
Tickets for both the promotions are available at Arrival and Departure Duty Free Shops and online at www.dubaidutyfree.com. In addition, Dubai Duty Free is also opening a brand new Gold Shop in its Departure Duty Free and expects this to be very popular with departing delegates.
To respond to the Dubai 2003 enquiries, a dedicated customer service desk, a toll free telephone line 800 4201 and the mobile customer service units are available.
