We are still in the first week of the New Year and already we have had a successful market at the Dubai Festival City Mall last Friday. We have more handcrafted goodness coming up on the 10th of January 2014 at Times Square Centre, Dubai.
As we have entered 2014, it is important to recall the 2013 successes at ARTE, so that we can build on them. We reinforce our commitment to producing handmade goods because we believe in touching the life of customers with various artforms that are created right here in the UAE.
Without further ado, here is a low-down of what we have achieved so far:
1) Our Facebook page rose to around 12 K followers and stays pretty active. We will continue to post photos of various sights around each ARTE market.
2) The ARTE blog has been viewed 22,000 times to date and boasts of 100 blog posts to date, with the most popular 2013 posts being the following:
The blog currently attracts visitors from 113 countries, led by the UAE and followed closely by India and the USA.
3) Our subscriber list is growing! We have 3,900 vendors on the ARTE database..
ARTE started around 8 years ago, in September 2005 and we will continue to focus on the best we can do for the fabulous and talented artisans at ARTE. Our desires for 2014 is simple : BETTER BEST.
4) ARTE continues to get a lot of press. Check out our Press archives to read some of the articles on ARTE and the arte-sans here.
