Expo 2020 Dubai

Expo 2020 Dubai is a great exhibition that will showcase the achievements of world nations. A festival of human ingenuity, Expo 2020 Dubai aims to create opportunities for all, wherever they live, to reinforce and reenergise progress towards a sustainable future. This includes tackling the growing skills gap and helping to combat youth unemployment.

The World Expo opens on 20 October 2020 for 172 days to 10 April 2021 and will host 200 participants including 180 nations, alongside NGOs and sponsors. It is expected to welcome 25 million visits, with 70% coming from beyond the nation’s borders – the largest proportion of international visits in Expo history. It will provide an ideal platform to project the UK as a global force for prosperity, innovation, creativity and thought leadership. It will enable the UK to achieve impact and build influence not only in the UAE, but also in the broader Middle East and South East Asia (in line with the Gulf Strategy).
