“We are excited to announce the first edition of RAD Spring Sales, which is expected to be one of the most popular events in Abu Dhabi’s retail calendar,” says Saeed Rashed Al Saeed, destination marketing director, DCT Abu Dhabi. “Our mall and retail establishments are some of the finest in the world, and are an important facet of Abu Dhabi’s economic growth. We trust that these incredible shopping offers will encourage people to get out into the city and enjoy these deals.”
