The 25th season of Global Village in Dubai will commence from Sunday October 25.

The silver jubilee edition will extend for 25 weeks into Ramadan 2021.

“Our 25th anniversary is a great milestone for us and the teams are working hard to make this year very special. We also feel that this is an important message for the country and the region. Over the years we have become a mainstay for family entertainment across the region, and we are proud to be able to play an important role in driving the “open for business” message,” said Bader Anwahi, CEO of Global Village.

On March 15 earlier this year, the organisers of the annual shopping, dining and entertainment festival, decided to end the current season due to the Covid-19 pandemic ahead of the scheduled closing date of April 4.

Ahead of the opening of its next season in October, Global Village has already received the Dubai Assured Stamp awarded by Dubai Municipality, Dubai Economy and Dubai Tourism (DTCM) in light of the stringent preparations for opening.

The Dubai Assured stamp is a new compliance programme to certify that hotels and retail establishments, F&B outlets and tourist attractions in the emirate are adhering to the highest levels of Covid-19 protection standards.

“Our team is working tirelessly to ensure that our guests return to Global Village with confidence. Whether it’s by using state of the art technology for wayfinding and contactless payment or by adapting our entertainment offerings, we are breaking new ground across all our verticals for the comfort and happiness of our guests,” said Anwahi.

Global Village is recognised as the first Theme Park in the world to win the “Sword of Honour” from the British Safety Council for high standards of safety management.

This year, it will also work closely with local authorities and international organisations such as the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) to further enhance the guest experience.

It is expecting a footfall of over seven million visitors for the upcoming seasons with ticket entry prices remaining at Dhs15.

On July 12, Global village announced that it was opening registrations for investors and businesses to participate in the upcoming edition.

“Contributing to the business sector is the best way we can support the country post-Covid-19. We hope to play a big part in boosting our economy, enhancing the SME ecosystem, and empowering people to make an impact in the profession they love,” said Khadija Khalifa, senior director commercial at Global Village.
