Ladies hustling for a good deal, families trying to escape the heat, kids running around, friends catching up for coffee - sounds like a perfect day at the shopping mall.
But this one was different - the @ripemarket event last Friday at @dubaifestivalcity was one of the first indoor markets for this summer. The market was characterized by stalls of local businesses, giving them a platform to sell their handcrafted products to residents and tourists visiting the mall. There was enough to keep the ladies and kids occupied ;-) Very well organized event, kudos to the event management team!
It was the first time TubTime @tubtimedxb was participating in a market, and for the same reason we were filled with anxious anticipation on how things would work out. The market was set up in Festival Square, centrally located in the mall, with ample sign boards guiding shoppers to the market. We registered ourselves earlier, so as to get a table allocated for us and to begin setting up our stall. Once we were all set up, there was no looking back. Shoppers started to pour in by 5:00 PM all the way till midnight, stopping by our stall for enquiries and questions. It was worth all the effort as the market exceeded our expectations in terms of footfall and sales :-) A big thank you to all for coming by and showing us your support.
Below is a customer review from Vivek Tejasvi who bought our products as a gift for his beautiful wife Sarika:
“I visited the TubTime stall at Dubai Festival City and was very impressed with their selection of organic bathing rituals. They were patient in explaining their unique concept and the range of skincare products. I bought the Damask Leaf Beeswax Candle (Red color) and the Pink Butterfly Soap, as a gift for my wife.
Very motivated bunch of ladies behind TubTime :-) I will definitely be ordering from their online store soon!”
Overall - a very successful event, as we were able to make our brand visible on such a large platform. Also, we got introduced to other entrepreneurs who share our passion. Shout out to @vifaacollection and @booktopiadubai, we wish them all the best. Looking forward to participate in the next market very soon :-)
Thank you Ripe Market!
