Commenting on the event, Sultan bin Sulayem, DP World Group Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation (PCFC) said: “As a national leading growth facilitator, PCFC works hard to sustain DSF’s success by organizing the Carpet & Art Oasis annually. The 23rd edition is a reflection of how far the exhibition went since its first launch in 1996. People from all around the world flock to the exhibition every year, which has helped in boosting the retail industry and economic growth in Dubai. The emirate is gaining more and more importance thanks to the wise vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai”.

The event is a main attraction at DSF, especially for rug lovers who flock every year to the exhibition.

This attracts more businesses to the emirate which is becoming a world trade and tourism hub”.
