Dubai Duty Free celebrated the UAE’s 47th National Day on November 28 with a program of activities at the company’s head office.

In the presence of media guests including Dubai TV, the celebrations were officially opened by Executive Vice Chairman and CEO, Colm McLoughlin, and were commemorated with the UAE national anthem, which was followed by traditional Emirati dance performances and a cake-cutting ceremony.

McLoughlin said: “UAE National Day is a time for people from all backgrounds to experience the nation’s rich culture and I am proud to see our Emirati and expat colleagues come together to celebrate this very important event in the country.”

As part of the celebrations, employees enjoyed an Emirati exhibition on the grounds of Dubai Duty Free’s head office. The exhibition showcased the UAE’s rich traditions and history, and included attractions such as live cooking of traditional Emirati cuisine, calligraphy and henna decorations, all of which the employees participated in.

Earlier on, Dubai Duty Free has announced a 20% discount offer across a wide range of products from November 30 to December 2 to all arriving and departing passengers traveling through Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport.

The promotion applies to major categories including perfumes, cosmetics, watches, costume and precious jewelry, handbags, luggage, sunglasses, women’s, men's and children's fashion, confectionery and delicatessen.
