Emaar, the biggest lifestyle developer outside China, the developer of Burj Khalifa, The Dubai Mall, Dubai Opera, The Dubai Fountain and many thriving communities, including Downtown Dubai, has announced ‘Dubai Stars,’ a walk of fame saluting stars and influencers from all over the world.
The project will kick off with a global social campaign asking people to nominate their favourite celebrities and influencers for the first 400 stars to be featured at Dubai Stars.
The first phase of Dubai Stars, set along the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard in Downtown Dubai, will be unveiled in October at a mega event to be attended by the 400 featured celebrities who will launch their respective star.
Further underlining Downtown Dubai as the main tourist destination in Dubai, and Emaar as the provider of memorable, world-class lifestyle experiences, Dubai Stars will pay tribute to eminent personalities who have positively influenced the world through their work in music, film, art, architecture, sports, and literature as well as social influencers.
