Commenting on Dubai Lifestyle City’s initiative in introducing the Lifestyle Award and its role as the main sponsor of the event’s telecast in the UK on 18th May 2008, Arif B. Rahman, Managing Director of Dubai Lifestyle City, said,
“Our association with Zee Cine Awards is in line with Dubai Lifestyle City’s progressive plans to attract lifestyle devotees from across the globe. We are all aware of the extraordinary appeal of the Zee Cine Awards in the Sub-continent, but they are equally popular around the world and in the UK. The introduction of the Lifestyle Award and sponsorship fits our aspirations of bringing the exclusive offering of the Dubai Lifestyle City community to the “haute” segment of London”.
Rahman added: “The Dubai Lifestyle City community is a multi-functional project comprising of international brands such as JW Marriott, IMG Academies, Microsoft and Cisco to give the project a special touch of efficacy, exclusivity and credibility”.
