A lucky Emirati shopper has hit the jackpot, winning the grand prize in the mega raffle draw of the 47th Watch & Jewellery Middle East Show. Fatima Ahmed Saleh became the grand winner taking home 1kg of gold.

The Expo Centre Sharjah on Saturday organised its much-awaited mega raffle draw of the largest and longest running event of its kind, which concluded its autumn edition 2019 with a resounding success on October 5.

Seven more winners of gold sets, diamond rings and gemstones were also announced during an award ceremony hosted by Expo Centre Sharjah. The prizes were presented to the winners by Marwan Al Mashghouni, Director of Government Relations, on behalf of Saif Mohammed Al Midfa, CEO of the centre, in the presence of a number of senior directors.

The raffle draw was overseen by the Sharjah Economic Development Department (SEDD).

More than 66,000 visitors

Al Midfa congratulated the eight winners, stressing that customer satisfaction is the ultimate goal that the centre seeks to achieve throughout all shows and activities that it hosts or organises.

"The exhibition's fabulous prizes have no doubt played a significant role in attracting a huge number of jewellery and watches hunters, who exceed 66,000 visitors to various pavilions, enjoying a wonderful and fruitful shopping experience," Al Midfa said.

"It was very obvious that the five-day event has left a positive impact on stimulating a number of vital business sectors related to consumer products and luxury goods in Sharjah," the CEO of Expo Centre Sharjah added.
