The World Expo is a showcase for human achievements and advancements from around the globe. A place to celebrate and exhibit the latest developments and new technologies brought about by humanity’s constant enterprise. The concept of a Global Exhibition, or World Fair, was first realised in 1951 with London’s ‘Great Exhibition’. An event attended by such luminaries as the father of evolution, Charles Darwin, and pioneer of electromagnetism, Michael Faraday.
Now officially licenced once every five years, each Expo is built around predefined themes. All nations on earth are welcomed to demonstrate their latest and most exciting advances in those areas.
Previous Expos have seen the world’s first public viewings of such life-changing developments, from technology discovery to infrastructure development. Now, in 2021, Expo comes to Dubai. Just imagine what the world can discover…
For six months, Dubai will welcome every nation of the planet to the most significant event ever held in the Arab world. The theme of Expo 2020 is ‘Connecting Minds and Creating the Future, with a specific focus on the three areas of Opportunity, Mobility, and Sustainability. Expo 2020 is about bringing people together in one place, collaborating, creating, and changing the world.
Expo 2020 will be just as much about play as about work. A huge 4km2 district of the city is developed featuring the three thematic sections, 192 national pavilions, over 200 restaurants, and host a staggering 60 live shows every single day. At night the arena will come alive with big-name concerts and mesmerising pyrotechnic displays. All this in an awe-inspiring environment of world-class architecture and innovative landscapes.
Originally intended to begin in 2020, in the interest of safety and responsibility as the world strives to overcome the Covid-19 pandemic, Expo 2020 has been moved to new dates in 2021. The event will now run from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022. The site will be open seven days a week, from 10.00 am to 12.00 midnight on weekdays, and 10.00 am to 2.00 am on weekends.
