Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) has unveiled the DIFC Hot Air Balloon, which symbolises the Centre's growth journey since its inception in 2004, under the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai.
The move is in celebration of its 15 year anniversary, and it also signifies the exploration of new directions by pioneering uncharted aspects of the financial services landscape. The DIFC Hot Air Balloon will be operated by Balloon Adventures Emirates, providing an unforgettable experience for DIFC clients and the wider public to fly over the dunes of Dubai with falcons, followed by a buffet breakfast in a desert setting.
"DIFC has come a long way since its inception 15 years ago, and we owe it to our long-standing clients for making our journey such a successful one," said Essa Kazim, governor of DIFC. "We are excited to embark on our new period of growth together with our community of over 23,000 professionals working across more than 2,000 companies, as we reach new heights in the next 15 years and beyond."
