Downtown Dubai will be home to a walkable tribute to stars and influencers from all over the world - similar to Hollywood's Walk of Fame, Emaar announced on Monday.
Dubai Stars, located along Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, will kick off with a global social campaign asking people from all over the world to nominate their favourite celebrities and influencers for the first 400 stars.
The first phase of Dubai Stars will be unveiled in October at an event to be attended by the 400 featured celebrities who will launch their respective star, a statement said.
Dubai Stars will pay tribute to eminent personalities who have positively influenced the world through their work in various fields including music, film, art, architecture, sports, and literature as well as social influencers, it added.
