Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is one of the world’s natural leading retail destinations. What was once an arid desert is now home to several of the world’s largest and most dynamic shopping mall experiences. The iconic Dubai Mall contains over 1,200 stores on 4 floors, and its smaller sibling, the Mall of the Emirates, has over 700 stores. Dubai is actually second only to London in terms of the number of international brands which are present in the market (57% of global brands are present in Dubai).
