Summer in Dubai is well and truly here, which means the return of Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS). The 23rd edition of DSS will start on 9 July and run to 29 August and will offer residents staying in Dubai over the summer, as well as tourists visiting, a "rich programme of unforgettable events, promotions, entertainment and digitally led experiences and initiatives."
Alongside DSS, there will also be exciting campaigns around Eid Al Adh and Back To School.
Ahmed Al Khaja, Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), said: “This year, more than ever, we look forward to welcoming back the city’s residents and visitors to Summer in Dubai, while ensuring their health and safety remain our highest priority. Through additional safety measures put in place across malls and retail stores, Dubai will once again be the place to be this summer season, and we look forward to another successful and safe edition of DSS, alongside the other summer festivals. As the city thrives, we will bring back our popular events and promotions over the course of seven action-packed weeks, and welcome new elements that will allow shoppers everywhere to participate in the festivities.
For 23 years, DSS has paved the way for shopping festivals globally and has proven that it can evolve with the changing times and trends. This summer will be no different, as the city opens up and is set to showcase the best of retail and entertainment, as well as an array of innovative virtual and physical elements, to keep everyone entertained all summer long.”
The full calendar of events will be announced ahead of the festival on www.dubaisummersurprises.com and @DSSsocial.
