Dubai to launch arts and sport Walk of Fame

Dubai to launch arts and sport Walk of Fame
March 22, 2019

Emaar, 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.

Dubai’s 'Walk of Fame' along the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard in Downtown Dubai with stars for 10,000 celebrities and influencers, is expected to be four times the size of the legendary Hollywood walkway.

The ‘Dubai Stars’ project will pay tribute to "eminent personalities who have positively influenced the world through their work" across various fields including music, film, art, sports and literature.

It is hoped that the ‘Dubai Stars’ will become one of the city's most-visited tourist attractions, with a diverse range of celebrities featured.

Social influencers will also be celebrated, with the public asked to vote for the first 400 names in an online nominations process.

Emaar Properties Managing Director, Ahmad Al Matrooshi advised “Emaar takes pride in ensuring the best lifestyle experience for both residents and visitors to Dubai,.

“With Dubai Stars we are further highlighting our commitment to making Dubai the best city in the world, and to promoting arts, culture and sports by saluting the stars, whose contributions continue to inspire the world.”

The first phase will be unveiled in October at a major event attended by the 400 featured celebrities.
