TUMI is in constant forward motion and using this holographic technology was a display of our commitment to innovation.” said Victor Sanz.

It showcased dazzling visuals featuring the TUMI Alpha Bravo Life in Forward Motion campaign which starred professional footballer Son Heung-Min, Mclaren F1 driver and gamer Lando Norris and actor and recording artist Anthony Ramos.
DJ Cyril and Arabs Got Talent finalist and percussionist Daneel Sayegh kept the energy up all night with live performances. Open until 14 February, the unique experiential pop-up features a design inspired by the concept of a supply crate parachuting into the heart of the Dubai Mall from the skies above.
