Dubai Duty Free witnesses a jump in Visa transactions

United Arab Emirates: Saturday, September 20 - 2003 @ 10:51

The popularity of the Visa card is due to the fact that Visa cardholders can double their chances to participate in the raffle draw for 25 kilos of gold, the grand prize of the Forever Dubai campaign.

Forever Dubai is a unique tourism initiative created by DTCM to promote Dubai as a shopping destination as well as to reinforce the city’s reputation as the City of Gold during Dubai 2003. Alongside the cultural show, “Forever Dubai” features a citywide sales initiative, giving any person who buys goods and services worth a minimum of AED 200 (US$ 55), a chance to win a grand prize of 25 kilos of gold on the night of September 26th. Raffle coupons are available at over 1,000 retail outlets throughout Dubai.

Colm McLoughlin, Managing Director of Dubai Duty Free said, “Dubai has been the focus of the business community for the past few days, and as Dubai Duty Free we have been playing our part in welcoming the distinguished overseas visitors of Dubai 2003. In order to assist delegates further, we have established a Toll Free telephone no. (800 4201) that will answer any queries that visitors have about Dubai Duty Free and our range of products, prices and availability. We also have roving Customer Service Units on hand at the airport to assist delegates and our other passengers with any queries.”

The award-winning Dubai Duty Free, the fifth largest airport retailer in the world in terms of turnover, has been ensuring that the delegates, officials, media personnel and visitors from the 184 countries of the World Bank Group receive a traditionally warm Arabian welcome on their arrival in Dubai.

Moreover, one of Dubai Duty Free’s greatest successes, the Finest Surprise Draw, is offering 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 is the Millennium Millionaire Promotion. The exciting promotion offers 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 has also opened a brand new Gold Shop in its Departure Duty Free, which is proving to be very popular with departing delegates.
