In October 2020, Dubai will become a global destination for millions of people who will get together to share ideas, showcase their innovation, collaborate and celebrate human ingenuity. Expo 2020 will open on 20 October 2020 in the south of the city with Al Wasl Plaza at its heart.
Expo 2020 is a trade exhibition that is held every five years and takes place over a six-month period. It is organised for businesses from 167 countries around the world to display their latest products and services, meet with industry partners and customers and examine current market trends and opportunities.
The 2020 World Expo has a main theme of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’ to foster creativity, collaboration and innovation. A dome will be set up in Al Wasl Plaza that will double as a 360-degree screen at night projecting images to the public. It will be filled with fountains, waterfalls, parks and palm-lined courtyards and will partly be open to the sky at the top.
If you are planning to attend this auspicious event, it’s best to book early, as millions of people are expected to attend, resulting in a shortage of flights and accommodation.
