Dazzling performances, cash rewards and a Land Rover Defender 90 Coupe conclude the month-long extravaganza.
Doha Festival City, Qatar’s ultimate destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment, celebrated the highly successful Shop Qatar 2024. Culminating in a dazzling finale on Saturday evening, the event showcased extraordinary performances, the announcement of fortunate raffle winners, and an award ceremony.
Held from January 1 to 27, the month-long shopping festival at Doha Festival City was a resounding success, with the second highest number of shops participating in the festivities among the 13 malls across Qatar. The grand closing ceremony took place on January 27 at The Village, an outdoor extension at Doha Festival City, and it was attended by 4,000 visitors, who witnessed the spectacular performances.
The audience was captivated by a special appearance from Humood Al Khder, Electro Orchestra Show, and the renowned Adem Crew, celebrated for their spectacular show on Asia’s Got Talent. The night was further enlivened by a mesmerizing Taiko performance, infusing the event with rhythm and Asian vibes. The show ended with the first Doha Festival City Drone Show that lit up the skies at The Village, celebrating the end of the successful shopping season.
During the ceremony, mega raffle draw winners were also announced. Those who spent a minimum of 200 QAR at participating outlets and redeemed their receipts at the redemption gaming booths were entered into a raffle with grand prizes. The pinnacle of excitement unfolded as winners were revealed on Saturday, where three shoppers walked away with 10,000 QAR each, two won 20,000 QAR, and one grand prize winner received 50,000 QAR. The highlight of the evening was the announcement of the winner of a brand-new Land Rover Defender.
The closing ceremony also hosted the prestigious ‘Mall & Retail Awards’, organized by Visit Qatar to recognize and celebrate the contributions of shopping malls and retail team members.
