Sharjah: Expo Centre Sharjah (ECS) is set to become the most visited retail and leisure destination this season, as the 16-day Ramadan Nights got under way on June 15.

Being held as part of Sharjah Ramadan Festival organised by the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI), the Ramadan Nights has all the elements to help residents and visitors observe the fasting month of Ramadan and the ensuing Eid celebrations.

The most enticing component that is set to drive visitor traffic is the huge discounts - up to 80 per cent - on some popular products and gadgets that most participants are offering. Add to this the presence of leading retailers, a wide range of household products, food courts and an exciting line-up of amusement activities; visitors have a sure-shot Ramadan destination this season.

“The Ramadan Nights will be a perfect family event this Ramadan. Thousands of residents and visitors will be looking for an ideal place where they can spend their Ramadan evenings together with their friends and families, shop for Eid, enjoy multi-cuisine delicacies and keep the children engaged in games and amusement activities. Expo Centre will be one single place where they can find all these and much more,” said H.E. Saif Mohammed Al Midfa, CEO, Expo Centre Sharjah.

For retailers, the Ramadan Nights offers the best opportunity to take advantage of a season when household and lifestyle items, gadgets and electronic appliances see a massive increase in sales.

Recent studies have forecast a growth of up to 30 per cent in retail sales this Ramadan given that the UAE retail industry has been witnessing strong growth in sales for the past few years and is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 7 per cent during 2016-2020.

Saif Mohammed Al Midfa, CEO, and Expo Centre Sharjah, said: “The event is perfectly timed to coincide with the last two weeks of the festive season, aiming to cater to visitors’ complete shopping, entertainment and gifting requirements. Since the Ramadan Nights is held in conjunction with the Sharjah Ramadan Festival, major raffle draws of the festival will be held at Expo Centre Sharjah.”
