Expo 2020 Dubai recently revealed its master plan at the Arab Media Forum held in Dubai from 11-12 May 2016. The site was unveiled through the use of augmented reality and leading-edge digital technology. The Expo pavilions will be dedicated to sub-themes Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability under the main theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’.
Reem bint Ibrahim Al Hashemi, Minister of State for International Cooperation, Director-General of Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “The Expo 2020 Dubai’s master plan truly reflects the theme of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, and aims to seamlessly integrate the three subthemes into the urban design, infrastructure, delivery, operations, and legacy of the mega-event.”
Expo 2020 Dubai will take place between 20 October 2020, and 10 April 2021, with approximately 25 million visitors expected. The entire site will span over two square kilometres, centred on the Al Wasl meeting plaza, the heart of Expo 2020. Spreading out from Al Wasl will be the three districts corresponding to the sub-themes which will each have their own unique pavilion.
The exhibition is sure to bring in diverse and unique people and industries from around the world which will leave a lasting impact on the city and the business events industry, driving knowledge creation in the emirate and fostering the exchange of ideas, information and research which ultimately boosts the broader vision towards transforming Dubai into a global knowledge hub.
