Hundreds of thousands thronged Dubai shopping destinations such as Mall of the Emirates, Mirdif and Deira City Centre and the Dubai Mall. Stores in the capital's Marina Mall and Abu Dhabi Mall also reported higher numbers of visitors, particularly Emiratis, over the three-day break.

Tourists from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, where public sector workers enjoyed 12 days off for Eid, made the most of extended opening hours in Dubai of 1am for shops and 3am for restaurants to splash the cash.

Dubai Mall welcomes more than 200,000 shoppers a day



Dubai: Dubai Mall attracted 75 million visitors in 2013, making it the most visited retail destination in the world for the third consecutive year, according to a statement from the mall’s developer Emaar Properties on Wednesday.

Dubai Mall surpassed Mall of America and Bullring Birmingham in the UK (with 40 million visitors each), Intu Trafford Centre, UK (30 million visitors), Part Dieu Lyon, France (29.4 million visitors), and West Edmonton Mall, Canada (28 million visitors), according to Emaar Properties.

Visitor numbers in Dubai Mall rose 15 per cent last year. The mall received 65 million visitors in 2012. Average monthly footfall for 2013 touched 6.25 million, or more than 200,000 per day.

Craig Plumb, head of research for the Middle East and North Africa at Jones Lang LaSalle, told Gulf News that the mall’s attractions are main drivers of footfall since many visitors don’t shop.

People visit “the Downtown area for entertainment and food and beverage rather than shopping,” Plumb said. Dubai Mall features a variety of attractions, such as KidZania and Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo.

Meanwhile, sales at the mall’s 1,200- plus stores grew by 26 per cent year-on-year, with sales in the mall’s Fashion Avenue accounting for around 50 per cent of all luxury goods sold in Dubai, according to data from Bain and Company, a management consulting firm, as quoted by Emaar Properties. The Fashion Avenue, which features some of the world’s major brands, is expected to have an additional one million square feet, making way for 150 more brands in the mall.

Craig said that Dubai Mall’s expansion will increase the number of visitors in the long-term but it will not have an impact this year since construction work will cause disruptions.

Tourists represented the majority of Dubai Mall’s visitors last year, accounting for more than 40 per cent of total visitor numbers. Most of them came from Saudi Arabia and other countries in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council), China, India, Russia and Europe, according to Emaar.

Dubai has been attracting a growing number of tourists every year. In the first nine months of 2013, the emirate welcomed around 7.9 million visitors, up 9.8 per from the previous year, according to Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM).

The emirate represents around 60 per cent of the UAE’s luxury market and 30 per cent of the Middle East market, Bain and Company data showed.

Dubai Mall has had a big impact on Dubai’s economy, according to Emaar Properties’ group CEO Abdulla Lahej.

“[Dubai Mall has] generated more than 25,000 jobs and consistently driving the growth of the city’s retail, leisure and hospitality sectors — the core contributors to Dubai’s GDP,” he said in a statement.

Dubai Mall named most visited lifestyle destination on earth
Feb 10th, 2015

Emaar's Dubai Mall has retained its title as the world’s most-visited lifestyle destination, welcoming over 80 million visitors in 2014, according to new figures.

The visitor numbers recorded in the mall were higher than footfall figures provided in 2014 by Business Insider with Times Square, New York City at 39.2 million; Niagara Falls at 22.5 million; Central Park New York at 37.5 million; Union Station, Washington DC at 32.85 million; Disneyworld’s Magic Kingdom Orlando at 17.5 million and Eiffel Tower in Paris at 7 million, among others.

Mohamad Alabbar, chairman of Emaar Malls, said: “This is another historic milestone for Dubai, with a record 80 million visitors to The Dubai Mall in 2014.

"No other global tourist destination or even airports, which traditionally have the highest footfall, have achieved the significant visitor arrivals The Dubai Mall recorded.

“With wholesale and retail accounting for nearly 30 percent of Dubai’s real GDP, The Dubai Mall continues to make a sterling contribution to our city’s diversified economic growth.”

The contribution of The Dubai Mall to the city’s retail sector is estimated to account for about 5 percent of Dubai’s GDP.

Tenant sales recorded across the mall’s 1,200 plus retail stores and 200 F&B outlets at the mall, cumulatively grew by 14 percent in 2014, with growth seen across categories including fashion, luxury jewellery, footwear, sports and recreation, health and beauty, entertainment and food.
