The Long-Waited-for Expo 2020 Dubai Is Finally Happening! Let’s Have a Closer Look at It

Mariam Youssef - Sep 2021

Expo 2020 Dubai is a celebration of human achievement and brilliance. It is a great opportunity for everyone to connect from different places across the whole world to experience the best of culture, art, geography, technology, science, innovation, and invention, and to put countless new ideas and thoughts into action that will make a lasting positive impact in our lives.

Expo 2020 is a World Expo that will be hosted by Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. This international event's dates are 1 October 2021 – 31 March 2022. It was meant to be hosted in October 2020, but it got postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The organizers of the event will keep the name Expo 2020 for branding and marketing purposes.

192 countries have confirmed their participation in Expo 2020, which makes it the most inclusive international Expo ever. Proudly, Egypt is one of the participated countries in this mega event, showcasing 3 original antique Pharaoh statues.

Expo 2020 is taking place on October 1st, 2021 and we're super excited and thrilled to witness this amazing cultural phenomenon. The Expo's main theme is "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future". The Expo also has three subthemes: opportunity, mobility, and sustainability and each one has its own pavilion.

The Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia area will host the World Expo in Dubai for the first time ever. This allows people from all around the world to participate in daily futuristic encounters. When Dubai was given the privilege to host Expo 2020 on November 27, 2013, the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, burst in fireworks. The following day was declared a national holiday for all educational institutions in the country. In 2020, the Ruler of Dubai vowed that Dubai would "astonish the globe."

The global fair's staging and preparations are estimated to generate 277,000 new jobs in the UAE, with a total economic impact of approximately $40 billion and a visitor surge of at least 25 million and up to 100 million. Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director-General of Dubai Municipality, stated that they had the region's largest laboratory and can quickly investigate new materials and technology required for building.
