The Dubai Duty Free management and staff gathered together to celebrate the UAEs 52nd National Day

In a grand display of national pride, Dubai Duty Free marked the 52nd National Day of the United Arab Emirates. The Head Office in Umm Ramool transformed into a hub of festivities, with Emiratis and expats uniting to celebrate.

The event was opened by Ramesh Cidambi, Chief Operating Officer, and Salah Tahlak, Joint COO, with the UAE National Anthem setting the tone for the day's events.

A highlight of the celebration was an outdoor Emirati exhibition at the Dubai Duty Free head office. This exhibition was a vibrant showcase of the UAE's rich cultural heritage, featuring traditional Emirati games, henna artistry, a 360-degree selfie booth, tote bag painting, and live demonstrations of Emirati cuisine. The day's festivities culminated in a communal cake-cutting ceremony, with enthusiastic participation from the company’s executives and employees.
