Spanning a weighty 132 pages, the November/December double issue is packed with insightful Middle East and Africa content.

Our cover story highlights the 40th anniversary of Dubai Duty Free, with our extensive coverage charting the travel retailer’s incredible rise to success, from 10-person start-up to multi-billion-dollar powerhouse.
