Romance between India and Dubai is not breaking news. Indians form the biggest bulk of tourists that fill up the streets of Dubai every year.

The bilateral trade between India and UAE is flourishing. A step towards cementing this relation has come in the form of the Dubai Festival in Mumbai (DFM).

At this fest, all that glitters will be gold;

One Of The Emirates Has Been Flown Down For You!

DFM is the first ever set-up of all things Dubai in Mumbai. The organisers, Hungund Events and Entertainment Pvt. Ltd., aim to fly down all the attractiveness of this Emirate. There is a lot that Dubai has to offer, and to do justice to that, MMRDA Grounds is the chosen spot for the festival.

For The Fun-Lovers

Spread out over 24,000 sq. m. of BKC (Bandra Kurla Complex) land, this festival will have a desert safari and an amusement park. An open air amphitheatre is going to be there for shows and performances. Your palate will not be disappointed with all the variety of flavours that Emirati cuisine has. After all, there is logic behind why Dubai is known as the gastronomical capital of the region.

What Is In Store For You

Dubai is going to woo Mumbai on several platforms. Travel and tourism, Islamic banking, real estate, fashion, lifestyle, food and beverages, cosmetics, dates, electronics, jewellery, wellness, and education. We can’t speak of Dubai and not expect a show of the hottest wheels to race the roads of this earth. So, don’t miss out on the display of cars! Participate in the interactive events and enjoy the live shows at the fest, which includes a fashion show.

For The Business Professionals

This is Dubai’s chance to show this part of the world all what they have in entertainment, culture, hospitality, and business. Also, this is your chance to experience Dubai without having to take a plane out of the city. Just brave the traffic to reach the heart of Bombay, where MNCs tower over old-school bungalows. For all the business-intent people, there will be brands, products, and services from Dubai displaying their potential. If you fancy a business partner or client based in Dubai for all those visits you plan, make the most of this fest. It is going to be a playground for B2B as well as B2C.
