Countdown Begins to Expo 2020 Vote
(Dubai) – The final countdown has begun with less than 100 days to go until representatives from the 167 member nations of the Paris-based Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) cast their votes on November 27th to decide which city will host the 2020 World Expo. The Dubai Expo 2020 team is now focused on working towards the Theme Symposium in Dubai this October.
The Theme Symposium, which will be held by each of the candidate cities, is an opportunity for the UAE to further demonstrate to BIE delegates the global relevance and timeliness of the bid theme, Connecting Minds, Creating the Future. Delegates will have the chance to explore the three sub themes; Mobility, Sustainability and Opportunity which represent key drivers of global development.
As a result of the country’s infrastructure and geographical positioning, Dubai Expo 2020 can expect to attract 25 million visitors offering a diverse and exciting international profile. For the first time in the history of World Expo more than 70 per cent of the visitors would stem from beyond the host nation.
