“We are so proud to be celebrating our milestone 10 year anniversary,” said Chris Fountain, Managing Director of event organisers Turret Media. “Once again we are part of the Dubai Food Festival and helping to play a crucial role in driving regional and international tourism to the UAE. With over 160,000 people having visited the festival over the past decade, we are looking forward to reflecting on the event's tremendous success and growth. It's going to be the most delicious display ever to celebrate this special occasion.”

Electrolux is continuing its partnership with Taste of Dubai in its 10th anniversary.  This year, the new ‘Make life delicious' programme will give visitors the opportunity to both learn, share and be inspired to try new ways to bring food to life.
