Dubai Expo

Dubai Expo 2020, the grandest spectacle on earth, unfolded over 182 days, captivating visitors from 192 countries and recording an astonishing 24 million visits. This extraordinary event showcased the power of global unity and demonstrated what can be achieved when people from all corners of the world come together.

Being the first World Expo held in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia (MEASA) region, Expo 2020 Dubai marked a monumental milestone for Dubai and a historic moment for the UAE. This significance was further magnified as it coincided with the nation’s Golden Jubilee, solidifying the legacy of Expo and paving the path for the next generation of change-makers.

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Expo 2020 Dubai Higher Committee, expressed immense pride in the Expo’s success, stating, “We have staged a World Expo that has connected minds, created the future, and inspired the world. Expo 2020 Dubai is a triumph that will be remembered as a beacon of unity and hope—a momentous achievement for the UAE as we celebrated our 50th year.”

Expo 2020 Dubai has been hailed as a resounding success and a symbol of hope, rallying the international community amidst uncertain times. Overcoming immense challenges, including the global pandemic that led to its one-year postponement and restricted travel, the Expo demonstrated resilience and adaptability with its robust health and safety measures.

Her Excellency Reem Al Hashimy, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director General of Expo 2020 Dubai, commended the extraordinary journey of the Expo, stating, “Despite unprecedented challenges, we have delivered on our promise to astonish the world. We presented world-class entertainment, celebrated diverse cultures, exchanged ideas, and sought solutions to global challenges. This is only the beginning of the new world we have begun to shape together.”

The success of Expo 2020 Dubai is owed to the collective efforts of a dedicated volunteer force of 30,000, the Expo Tribe, Participants, Partners, and the Expo 2020 Dubai Higher Committee. The theme “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future” truly came to life, exemplifying a shared vision and a testament to human ingenuity. As Expo 2020 Dubai bid farewell in a spectacular Closing Ceremony, HE Reem Al Hashimy closed the mesmerizing Entry Portals, symbolizing the end of an era filled with iconic moments.

Expo 2020 Dubai will forever be etched in history as a monumental event that showcased the spirit of unity, innovation, and hope. Its legacy will continue to inspire generations to come, reminding us of the remarkable achievements that can be accomplished when the world unites.
