As the business hub of the Middle East and one of the world’s wealthiest cities, Dubai has attracted its fair share of affluents and luxury brands.

Luxury is arguably the primary industry in Dubai, as the city’s economy revolves around trade, tourism, real estate and financial services. The United Arab Emirates has increasingly become a haven for the ultra-affluent from around the globe, and brands across luxury sectors have expanded their presence in Dubai.

“Dubai sits at a crossroad between East and West and under the leadership of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, it has transformed from being an important regional hub to a global one,” said Christophe Caïs, CEO of CXG, Dubai. “Luxury brands have quickly found their clientele here, with local Emiratis, expats and tourists.”
