Dubai expo 2020

In November 2013 in Paris, Dubai marked an important milestone by bagging the bid to host the first-ever World EXPO in the MENASA (Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia) region. As one of the world’s most key events drawing millions of people, the Expo serves as an economic, social and political catalyst that attempts to open new doors for innovation, mutual aid, best trade practices, and most importantly, market growth. Accordingly, this momentous triumph is expected to bring an overall positive impact on the UAE’s economic landscape.

Dubai Expo 2020 Plan

The main theme of Expo 2020 is Connecting Minds, Creating the Future, which is supported by three sub-themes: Opportunity, Sustainability, and Mobility. The expo supports ideas and innovations that would help in protecting and preserving the world and its cultures.

Dubai has created a brand new city for Expo 2020, Dubai South. Located between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the entire site is extended across 1083 acres of land. The main area would be the central plaza, Al Wasl, which is a huge dome that would include parks, waterfalls, and fountains. The dome would also act as a 360o screen after sunset and would show images of people inside and outside the dome.

The Expo 2020 site can be accessed by four gates, and the area can hold more than 15000 people at a time. People visiting Dubai Expo 2020 would be able to visit the different pavilions, one each for the 192 participating countries. Every country would share their innovations, ideas, and culture with visitors through interactive exhibits, activities, etc. Food lovers would have a blast, as there would be more than 200 food and beverage outlets at the site.

How Many Tourists Would Dubai Expo 2020 Attract?

It is expected that more than 25 million international visitors would visit Dubai for Expo 2020, and the city is getting ready for a great show. More than 100,000 hotel rooms would be available for visitors in Dubai by 2020.

How will Dubai Expo 2020 Boost Tourism?

Perhaps the most significant of the sectors to benefit from this phenomenal feat is tourism, along with hospitality and real estate. Dubai is already a key tourist center attracting about 10 million visitors per year. Thanks to its architectural icons, unmatched infrastructure facilities, and breathtaking cultural and heritage sites. With the hosting of World Expo 2020, this figure is anticipated to rise by 25 million.

In its endeavor to welcome the largest ever number of global visitors in the history of Expo and live up to the expectation of its main theme, Dubai has devised a whole lot of ground-breaking plans to boost its tourism sector in accordance with DTCM’s Tourism Vision 2020. This vision is focused on aid processes required to cater to the demands of guests expected to participate in Expo 2020. This will see the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing working in collaboration with its tourism partners in government and private sectors to improve the infrastructure through the launching of world-class hospitality, leisure and entertainment establishments.

Alternatively, this will help the UAE’s tourism sector to gain a strong foothold in a global platform, thereby heightening its visitor footfall and creating a massive surge in sales and profit.

Apart from the already existing attractions, Dubai is all set to launch several other attractions in the coming year. Here are some amazing things that you would see in the city if you visit Dubai during Expo 2020:
