Dubai Duty Free opened for business on December 20th 1983 and has grown to become one of the leading airport retailers in the world with sales turnover of Dhs5.9 billion (US$1.6 billion), representing a 10% increase over 2011.
Its founding principal of providing travellers with a first class retail experience in a shopper-friendly environment and a diverse range of products still holds true to this day.
Employing over 5,200 people, the operation has consistently raised the benchmark for airport retailing in the Middle East.
To date, Dubai Duty Free has received some 250 industry awards which bear testimony to the operation’s retail success including the 2012 Frontier Awards for ‘Best Airport Retailer of the Year’ which was won by the operation for an unprecedented sixth time; the ‘Best Airport in Duty Free Shopping’ presented at the Business Traveller Middle East Awards, the Global Traveller US magazine Award for ‘Best Duty Free Shop’ and the ‘Superbrands Awards for Excellence in Branding’ received from Superbrands Council.

A supporter of golf for many years, Dubai Duty Free is a proud sponsor of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and the Ladies European Tour Omega Dubai Ladies Masters, held every year at Emirates Golf Club.
In addition to this, Dubai Duty Free hosts a series of high-profile golf tournaments, including the annual Dubai Duty Free Golf World Cup, Dubai Duty Free UAE Nationals Cup, Dubai Duty Free Golf Cup and Dubai Irish Golf Society tournament.
Away from the golfing fairways, the firm tennis favourite with UAE tennis fans and a global TV audience is the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, owned and organized by Dubai Duty Free. The event comprises a WTA Premier 5 tournament played back-to-back with an ATP World Tour Series 500 Tournament.
Dubai Duty Free is a founding sponsor of the Dubai World Cup, the richest horse race in the world.

The operation is also the title sponsor of one of the biggest races in Europe, the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby, which is held at the Curragh Racecourse in Ireland each June.
By supporting so many events at the highest level and all around the globe, Dubai Duty Free is effectively promoting Dubai’s sporting, leisure and business facilities, which are second to none. And with more and more world-class sportspeople choosing Dubai to showcase their talent, there is set to be much more to come in the future.
Corporate Social Responsibility
In October 2004, DDF launched the Dubai Duty Free Foundation, a charitable body founded under the auspices of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman of Dubai Duty Free, to organise its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives and, most importantly, raise funds for worthy causes, specifically those aimed at benefiting children. The Foundation has since donated funds to several charities, both at home and abroad, and plays an active role in helping families and children in need.
In 2008, Dubai Duty Free established its own Corporate Responsibility (CR) department in-house under which the Dubai Duty Free Foundation is managed. In addition, the CR department is committed to reducing the Environmental impacts and health and safety risks associated with the storage and retailing of goods. It is the Company’s policy to operate an Integrated Management System in accordance with ISO 14001: 2004 and OHSAS 18001: 2007.
Rolex and the Dubai Tennis Championships
Rolex is proud to be a major force at play behind tennis’s finest events, players and organisations. From Wimbledon and the Australian Open to Swiss phenomenon Roger Federer, Rolex has cultivated a privileged relationship with this great sport.
Since its founding in the early 20th century, Rolex sought to partner with activities that embody passion, excellence and precision. Naturally, Rolex gravitated toward the world of tennis, forming an alliance that dates back to the late 1970s when the brand became the Official Timekeeper of Wimbledon.
For Rolex, the association with Wimbledon has special significance because it is not only the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament in the world, but it has also achieved the perfect balance between tradition and innovation, similar to the evolution of Rolex’s Oyster Perpetual.
In addition to Wimbledon, Rolex is also the proud sponsor of many other prestigious tennis events, among which the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships holds a special place as one of the premier annual men’s team competitions in world sport. Rolex has been the Official Timekeeper of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships since 2007.
In patronage of tennis’ exceptional individuals, Rolex counts among its Testimonees Swiss phenomenon Roger Federer. Tennis requires absolute precision and consistency, and Federer, who has been associated with the brand since 2001, has mastered the game better than any other player of all time.
Rolex also stands behind Danish powerhouse Caroline Wozniacki, ranked No. 1 in the WTA from October 2010 to January 2012 and winner of the 2006 Wimbledon Junior Championships, in addition to rising champions Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (France), Juan-Martin del Potro (Argentina), Ana Ivanovic (Serbia), and Li Na (China), who made both tennis and world history by becoming the first player from an Asian nation to win a singles Grand Slam Title.
Driven by a passion for excellence and a great appreciation for tennis, Rolex, the world’s leading Swiss watchmaker, is committed to cultivating the strong ties that bind these two prestigious worlds in their shared pursuit of perfection.

Australian Open, Roland Garros, the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals and of
course, the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.
LACOSTE also employs a socially responsible role through the sponsorship of the Tennis Clinic for children with special needs. Children from various schools are given the unique opportunity to spend a day training with respected coach Clark Francis and his team.
Today, LACOSTE counts more than 121 tennis champions (among them 20 are in the top 100) from almost 10 different nationalities who share with the brand and its founder René Lacoste the essential values of tenacity, performance, and elegance. LACOSTE has also boasts an impressive network of ambassadors, including Gustavo Kuerten, Mats Wilander and Guy Forget championsembodying perfectly the Crocodile brand’s values of authenticity, elegance, empathy, joie de vivre.
