Dubai developer Emaar has announced plans to create a walk of fame ‘Dubai Stars’ to recognise global celebrities and influencers in Downtown Dubai.
The project will begin with a global social campaign asking people from all over the world to nominate their favourite celebrities and influencers for the first 400 people to be featured at Dubai Stars.
The first phase of Dubai Stars, set along the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, will be unveiled in October at a mega event to be attended by the 400 featured celebrities who will launch their respective star, a statement said.
Moving ahead, the project will celebrate eminent personalities in various fields including music, film, art, architecture, sports, and literature as well as social influencers.
At its completion, Dubai Stars will have over 10,000 stars, about four times the number of stars that the Hollywood walk of fame has, the statement added.
Emaar is hoping that Dubai Stars will become one of the “most-visited tourist attractions” that will appeal to people for the diversity of celebrities to be featured.
Ahmad Al Matrooshi, managing director of Emaar Properties said: “With Dubai Stars we are further highlighting our commitment to making Dubai the best city in the world, and to promoting arts, culture and sports by saluting the stars, whose contributions continue to inspire the world.”
Downtown Dubai is currently one of the visited areas in the emirate, with popular tourist attractions such as Burj Khalifa, The Dubai Mall, The Dubai Fountain and Dubai Opera.
