2011 marks an important chapter for the UAE – on the 2nd December 1971 the UAE was formed, and since then Emiratis and expatriates alike have celebrated National Day with much pride and vigor. In commemoration of the UAE’s 40th National Day, Dubai’s first-ever mall Deira City Centre, is revealing a news headline exhibition of the UAE’s most memorable stories from nearly 40 years.
On display at the mall’s Central Stage, this enlightening exhibition recognizes all aspects of the nation’s life and heritage – highlighting the momentous growth and prosperity of this great nation so many call home. As well as an educational experience, the community-based presentation will provide Deira City Centre’s visitors with an opportunity to collectively celebrate this important milestone together – embracing the spirit of unity and heritage of this ever-changing cosmopolitan community.
Additionally, up to December 3rd, those visiting the mall throughout this celebratory occasion can win instant prizes from participating retailers. With every AED 200 spend, customers can redeem their receipts for an Instant Win Scratch Card and double their chances by entering the Grand Prize draw of a mega shopping spree worth AED 40,000 at Deira City Centre.
“Being Dubai’s first landmark shopping destination, Deira City Centre holds a special place in people’s hearts. For 16 years, we’ve been fortunate enough to celebrate UAE National Day with the growing community, as well as our loyal customers and visitors with exciting events and value-added shopping experiences. It’s a pleasure to commemorate the 40th UAE National Day by celebrating the UAE’s major milestones, achievements and successes through this visual exhibition. The transformation of the country is an inspiration for future generations as we look to the future”, said Fuad Al Najjar, Asset Director for Deira City Centre.
The mall will also be running a Facebook competition where fans are asked to submit UAE-inspired heart photos. Incorporating the UAE colours, pictures that receive the most likes can win shopping sprees at Deira City Centre worth AED 5,000, AED 3,000 and AED 1,000!
