Dubai Festival City Mall is to feature a “unique megamedia spectacular” from Q3, 2016, following a deal signed between operator Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate (AFGRE) and Laservision Mega Media.
The new attraction will be part of the mall’s AED1.5bn expansion scheme, and will be based on other experiences around the world, such as Hong Kong’s ‘A Symphony of Lights’—awarded the ‘World’s Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show’ by Guinness World Records – and Southeast Asia’s largest light and water show, ‘Wonder Full’ at Marina Bay in Singapore (pictured).
“We are bringing to Dubai a first-to-market, must-see, world class waterfront experience that will excite and engage our visitors,” said Chris O’Donnell, Group Director, Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate.
“Our current expansion firmly positions Dubai Festival City Mall amongst the Emirate’s top shopping and leisure destinations with an additional 27,000sqm in retail space to accommodate key new anchors, more diverse retail brands and over 75 F&B outlets,” added Mr. O’Donnell.
“Once our expansion programme is complete we will have created a shopping, dining and entertainment Creek-side destination like no other. It will be a place where modern Dubai living embraces the rich heritage of Dubai’s proud past fusing memories of yesteryear with aspirations for an even brighter future,” concluded O’Donnell.
