Dubai, October 26, 2013: The first-ever consumer-focused India luxury show got underway at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai on Saturday with a strong attendance of leading members of the UAE's society and corporate world interesting in exploring luxury experiences out of the world's second most populous country and fourth biggest economy.

Royal India-2013 Luxury Show is expected to be visited by over 3000 by-invitation guests - High Net Worth Individuals (HNWIs) and other wealthy Emiratis, Arabs and Indians - over its three-day run.

The show, supported by the Indian Ambassador to the UAE and India's Ministry of Tourism, is being held with Gitanjali Group as Presenting Sponsor and Century Financial Brokers as the title sponsor.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Juma Al Maktoum, accompanied by the Indian ambassador to the UAE, His Excellency M.K.Lokesh, and other dignitaries, formally opened the debut edition of the show by cutting the ceremonial ribbon in the presence of a large number of government officials, businessmen, investors and media representatives.

The show, along with a gala dinner on the first day, is attended by high-flying investors, high-profile government officials, corporate honchos, celebrities, socialites, art connoisseurs and members of rich families of Emirati and Indian communities. 

Being held on a total exhibition space of 21,000 square feet, the show has a significant number of hand-picked exhibitors from India, specializing in luxury products, services and experiences in a travel, shopping, arts, lifestyle and wellness.

The CEOs of reputed organisations from various economic sectors of India and the UAE will be attending to explore business opportunities and corporate tie-ups.

The exhibitors have been able to replicate a slice of their bouquet of luxury offerings through fully-furnished Luxury Stands, each with a built-up space of 25 square metres -by far the largest size provided to exhibitors in any country-focused trade exhibition.

The organisers selected Dubai for the launch of the luxury show considering its eminence as the Arab world's luxury hub, accounting for 30 per cent of the Middle East luxury market and around 60 per cent of the UAE's.  According to the recently-released Hurun India Rich List, nine percent of India's super rich reside in Dubai. The UAE features sixth on the global ranking for a per capita income of $47,500. At $360 billion in 2012, the GDP of the UAE ranks third in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

According to the recent VISA Affluent Study-2013, Emiratis belonging to the affluent socio-economic class give equal priority to dining out, leisure and expenditures on family holidays.

The study revealed that the UAE was ranked fifth among the surveyed countries in terms of individual plans for future discretionary spending on holidays. Concerning family holiday trips over 90 per cent of Emiratis took an overseas holiday in the previous year and plans to travel again in the coming year.

India-UAE relations are growing stronger each passing year with annual bilateral trade exceeding US$75 billion. Last year, an estimated million Indians visited Dubai, adding up easily another five billion dollars to the bilateral trade. Every 20 minutes, an aircraft takes off between India and the UAE.

Ms. Gayathri Elayath Bhardwaj, Chief Event Organiser at Dubai-based Globuzz Events Management the show organisers, said: Royal India is a more result-oriented approach in engaging a premium group of wealthy and luxury-seeking members of the UAE society in a people-to-people format, meeting their needs and expectations. We knew about the huge potential of the UAE market for the luxury segment, but the response has been overwhelming, enabling the exhibitors reach out targeted audiences effectively.

She said it was perhaps for the first that the luxury' facet of India in tourism, hospitality, holidays, shopping, lifestyle, and other domains was being done in the Arab world for people looking for exclusivity, luxury and style. 

According to the Indian Ambassador to the UAE, M.K. Lokesh, the travel between the two countries was driven by necessity such as business, work, education and medical treatment, but luxury has emerged as a new dimension to this relationship. 

The show, he said, endorses the global vision to showcase India as a world-class platform in tourism, travel, hospitality, infrastructure, technology, and service industry sectors such as healthcare, wellness and education.

Mr. Parvez Dewan, Secretary at the India's Ministry of Tourism, pointed out that Royal India Luxury Show will create conducive environment that further enhances the luxury tourism sector in India at a global marketplace and Middle East, particularly the UAE.

The exhibitors have utilized the show to highlight their offerings to the selected invitees in a broad range of luxury products and services.
