Kuwait Business Council launches entertainment festival in Dubai


The Dubai-based Kuwait Business Council is set to hold its first public event this year under the theme, "Celebrate Kuwait," in conjunction with Emaar Properties and Gastronomica Company.

The gala will also unveil a myriad of Kuwaiti youth projects representing several sectors, with festivities coming to a close at Dubai's Creek Harbor promenade on 9th and 10th March.

The Kuwait News Agency, KUNA, quoted Luma Bourisly, a council board member and chairwoman of the organising committee, as saying, "The choice of the campaign and festival theme reflects our desire for the event to be an entertaining, family-friendly celebration for all visitors."

She pointed out that the festival offers an "enjoyable experience that includes musical performances, sports activities and uniquely Kuwaiti attractions that make Kuwait a popular destination for visitors from the UAE."

"I am delighted to invite Kuwaiti talents and youth projects to participate in the festival and showcase their creativity, as the door is also open to national companies wishing to sponsor the mass event, which is expected to have more than 5,000 visitors over two days," Bourisly added.

Activities include outdoor performances by popular Kuwaiti artists who blend Arab culture with Western music, in addition to family-oriented events organized by UFC Gym.

Ahmed Al Matrooshi, the Managing Director of Emaar Properties, said, "We are delighted to host the event as part of our ongoing activities that cater to visitors of all ages."

He cited a "distinctive Kuwaiti character" in a show that will provide visitors with the opportunity to learn about Kuwait's artistic and creative landscape, as well as its talented athletes.
