The special event was the culmination of the "Timex Meet Brett Lee" consumer promotion, which was run from 5th to 20th July, across all Hour Choice outlets and TIMEX kiosks across the city. This promotion allowed consumers who had purchased a Timex watch during the promotional period, to enter a draw in which a "lucky 11" would be selected to attend an exclusive lunch with Brett Lee at the Kempinski Hotel, in the Mall of the Emirates.
As Timex brand ambassador, Brett played the perfect host with the winners, enthusiastically discussing everything from cricket to cuisine and Timex watches with them.
Commenting on the successful promotion and event, P Ravi Rao, Group General Manager of Hour Choice said:
"We are extremely upbeat about this association of Timex with ace cricketer Brett Lee. This alliance will certainly go a long way for Hour Choice which retails Timex watches. Timex is one of the key brands at Hour Choice and the great response to this promotion is a clear proof of it."
Hour Choice is playing an active role in expanding the Timex brand presence in the region through various recent business developments like the formation of Timex Mono brand kiosks across the city. Expecting a substantial growth of the brand in the coming years, Hour Choice has also planned more such mono brand initiatives for Timex.
Timex Area Sales Director for EMEA region, Nick Green, comments on Brett's visit saying:
"We are glad to have Brett here in Dubai with us today to meet the winners of the "Timex Meet Brett Lee" consumer promotion. The promotion has been extremely well received and an event of this sort is always a great way to involve consumers with the brand. It was especially great that Brett even got the chance to visit our Timex kiosk in the Ibn Batuta mall where several more consumers got to interact with him. The day has been very successful for us all."
Timex Brand Ambassador and Australian speedster Brett Lee commented, "I am excited to be visiting Dubai as the Timex Brand Ambassador. It is a truly amazing city and it was great to have met so many fans and spent time with the winners of the Timex promotion. It would be wonderful to come back to Dubai again."
