Expo 2020 Dubai to open tender process for retailer operators
Expo 2020 Dubai will open the online tender process to become an official retail operator for the highly anticipated event on Tuesday July 17, Expo organisers announced on Sunday.
According to Expo officials, over 5,000 types of official licensed products are due to be sold across more than 5,000 square-metres of retail space, as well as by authorised outlets around the UAE and online.
Selected retailers will have the rights to design, operate and commercialise Expo 2020 Dubai-branded retail operations.
Expo 2020’s retail operations will be based on the franchise model, offering a seamless and high-yielding revenue platform to operators.
Additionally, off-site retailers will be able to capitalise on the event. Expo-branded products are expected to generate high demand in malls and other retail destinations.
Selected retailers will also be given the chance to become authorised ticket resellers, enabling them to benefit from an additional revenue stream as well as footfall from visitors seeking tickets.
