Dubai’s big plans for the Expo 2020

Everyone should have seen the World Expo at least once in their life! But the Expo in Dubai will probably exceed all previous expectations. Dubai, the city setting one world record after another, wants to inspire its international audience! Dubai is taking on the topic of sustainability, for example, with the utmost responsibility. You can already tell from the sophisticated Expo building that Dubai is doing everything it can to put on a sustainable event. Normally, the elaborately designed Expo sites are dismantled immediately after the event, and most of the materials end up in the trash. But things are different at the Expo in Dubai. The pavilions, which are shaped like petals, can be dismantled and are to be rented out after the Expo.

What to expect at the Expo 2020

The World Expo is aimed primarily at visitors interested in innovation, scientific and technological progress. Over 25 million visitors are expected during the six-month World Expo.

In total, Dubai is letting the Expo cost over 7 billion euros to build the 480-hectare exhibition site.

The “Al Wasl” will combine the three exhibition themes of "Opportunity, Mobility, and Sustainability".
