Commenting on the sponsorship, Colm McLoughlin, managing director, DDF, said: “We are pleased to support the Dubai Summer Surprises for the fourth year. This summertime event has been a driving force in attracting tourists and this year more then ever the 10-week festival promises to be the best yet.
