Dubai to host Expo 2020, offering cultural experiences from over 190 countries

Dubai prepares to host Expo 2020, the most global Expo ever offering unrivalled cultural experiences from more than 190 countries.

The event tagged the world’s largest and most impactful event to ever hold in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia (MEASA) region, is set to hold from 1st October 2021 to 31st, March 2022.

With Expo 2020’s theme of ”Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”, as well as one or more of its sub-themes of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability, Dubai will welcome visitors from every corner of the globe to join the making of a new world, as it brings together the planet in one place to reimagine tomorrow.

The UAE services and business sectors, spearheaded by the hotel, travel and tourism industry, have been working tirelessly to make visitors to Expo enjoy a safe, inspiring and unforgettable experience during the six-month world event.

In light of the preparations for Expo 2020 Dubai, hotels have begun to allocate packages and extended stay offers specifically for visitors to the exhibition. The Dubai hotel sector is building more hotels despite the challenge and impact of COVID-19 on global tourism and travel.

Expo 2020 Dubai will be the largest cultural gathering in the world and will provide inspiring experiences for 182 days. More than 200 entities will contribute to these experiences, including countries, multilateral organisation, companies, and educational institutions, as well as millions of visitors, to create a version that is the largest and most diverse.
