KOCHI:The Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), an agency under the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) that is also organisers of the Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS), has  announced the names of the 20 regional and international students who have emerged winners of the ‘10th anniversary global edition’ of the DSS Apprenticeship Programme.

Vishal Keswani from Symbiosis International University will represent India in the longest-running destination-marketing internship programme.

The 2015 edition will have first-time participants from India, Russia and China joining its regional markets, including Iraq, Jordan, KSA, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Yemen, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Bahrain and Egypt, in addition to the UAE.

The winners will each be awarded an all-paid trip to Dubai, including return tickets and a two-week stay at EAHM - one of the world’s leading hospitality business management schools that is part of luxury hotel company Jumeirah Group. “We hope this event will help Vishal advance his skills and provide him the resources he needs to become a successful professional,” said DFRE CEO Laila Suhail.
