What is the Dubai 2020
Initially scheduled for October 20, 2020, to April 10, 2021, the Expo 2020 had to be postponed due to travel restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. For branding and marketing purposes, organizers of Expo 2020 decided to keep the original name for this year’s event.
With the theme “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future,” Expo 2020 is based on the belief that bringing the world together can catalyze new perspectives and inspire action to deliver real-life solutions to real-world challenges. Located near Dubai’s southern border with Abu Dhabi on what used to be a barren desert, the Expo 2020 site covers over 1,000 acres. During the Expo, which used to be known as “The Worlds Fair,” 191 nations will showcase their greatest tourist attractions, discoveries, and ambitions. For the first time in its history, each country will have its own pavilion to display what makes it great and how it looks towards building a better future.
Expo 2020 has over 190 pavilions
At Expo 2020, visitors can explore three distinct districts:
In the Sustainability District, visitors will be given a glimpse of the future as they witness some of the world’s most advanced technology in action. In this district, various countries will show how they plan to use new technology to live in harmony with nature.
The mobility district will allow visitors to see how autonomous vehicles and cutting-edge mobility technologies are about to change the way we think and live.
Visitors to the opportunity district can witness how today’s dreams are transforming the aspirations and realities of tomorrow. There is a ripple effect that can be an agent of change for everything we do, unlocking billions of opportunities for a better tomorrow.
