(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Emaar Retail, the premium provider of leisure and entertainment, has recorded a 25 per cent annual growth in the number of partners showcased across its diverse world-class attractions, building a strong partnership network to over 100 leading global and local brands in 2012.

Emaar Retail's iconic leisure assets are key attractions in the iconic Dubai Mall which welcomes over 60 million visitors a year, and Dubai Marina Mall, the must-visit retail and leisure destination in New Dubai. In 2012, an impressive 5.2 million visitors were welcomed to Emaar Retail's attractions, representing an increase of almost half a million visitors compared to 2011.

The robust performance of the leisure assets is a testament to the diverse and unique entertainment offered by Emaar Retail. An increasing number of brands are now attracted to the marketing platforms within these bespoke entertainment attractions as they recognise the exceptional opportunities to captivate tailored audiences.

Arif Amiri, chief executive officer, Emaar Retail LLC, said: "Forward thinking companies are constantly looking for innovative ways to showcase their brand offering within the increasingly competitive retail arena. Our growing partner network underlines the increasing popularity of Emaar Retail's leisure attractions as preferred brand building platforms for international and local corporations where the focus is on long-term customer engagement."

"Emaar Retail has created new benchmarks in the retail sector through innovative entertainment offerings, which has provided our brand partners truly extensive platforms for exposure to a global audience," he added.

Leading entities such as Swatch Group have renewed partnerships with Emaar Retail in 2012, and the group also counts several leading international brands such as Emirates airline, Samsung, Coca Cola and Emirates NBD within its partnership network.

"With millions of visitors flocking each year to the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, it presented an ideal platform to showcase our brand to a regional and global audience," said Vikram Krishna, head of group marketing & customer experience, Emirates NBD. "The resultant visibility generated through leveraging branding opportunities at strategic locations in and around the aquarium, also ensured long-term front-of-mind recall for the Emirates NBD brand."

Last year, drawing on the world-class prestige of Emaar Retail's leisure attractions, partnerships were forged with the UAE National Olympics Committee and Swatch Group for an array of promotions and show stopping events rolled out for visitors to the most popular attractions in the city including Dubai Ice Rink, Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo and KidZania.
