The World Expo 2020 in Dubai will be the first Universal Exposition to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia region. The main site for the exposition will cover the area of 15,000 square meters. The main topics the exposition will be dedicated to are the different business, real estate, economic growth and environmental issues. Although the major part of the work has already been done, the UAE still has a lot of things to do to get ready for such a giant event of the international level. Expo 2020 is the global destination created for sharing and exchanging ideas, discussing innovation and inspiring cooperation.
One of the main goals of the exposition is to facilitate partnership and collaboration. Expos are arranged every 5 years and last for 6 months. Expo 2020 in Dubai will take place from 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021. The fair is aimed at bringing together people from all over the world, in particular, those ones with the vision of the future. Arabtec Construction, famous for successfully carrying out the project on Louvre Abu Dhabi, is in charge of building the UAE pavilion for Expo 2020. It won the contract in the competition with the other UAE and international companies. The pavilion will most certainly become one of the main attractions of this festival of the human genius. Its futuristic design is in harmony with the general concept of the event.
The Dubai authorities are determined to amaze the world. Expo 2020 is the great opportunity for the UAE to tell people more about the Emirati culture showcasing its accomplishments as well as foster cooperation. Expo 2020 is about “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future” that is nurturing a particular way of thinking. It is the excellent platform for discussing the three key subthemes of the exposition – opportunity, mobility and sustainability. The site that will host the event in the UAE is the real wonder from the architectural point of view. It has the shape of a flying falcon and is comprised of 4 floors.
While designing the pavilion, the architects did their best to reflect the main values the state finds important in the international arena – openness, tolerance, and collaboration. It will remain the outstanding landmark the nation will take pride in even after the fair. The preparations leading to the exposition had the very beneficial effect on the economy of the UAE – the number of workspaces has increased by nearly 280,000, and there has been an injection of $40 billion. Moreover, there will be the significant rise in the number of visitors during and after the fair.
More than 180 countries will participate in the Expo 2020 in Dubai. Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Netherlands, and France are among them. The pavilion created to host the event reflects the history of the UAE. It speaks of the people who influenced it, who made the change, who, like other participants of Expo 2020, had a vision of the future. Hosting Expo 2020 will strengthen the position of the UAE at the international arena. 2017 is the very important year for the UAE in terms of getting ready for the fair. One of the ambitious aims of the exposition is to engage youth as they are responsible for shaping the future.
Before the design of the Expo 2020 pavilion had been approved, the authorities considered numerous other projects and concepts. All of them were supposed to emphasize the UAE heritage, to tell people about its past as well as share its vision of the future. In 2016 the authorities of the UAE launched their Business Connect Programme. It offers financial support to projects that are looking for the solutions of the main challenges the world is facing right now.
Expos have the significant positive impact on the world. These are gatherings where people can truly learn from one another celebrating partnership and each other’s culture. Expectantly, Expo 2020 in Dubai will have the strong legacy as well. The pavilion designed for the fair is the demonstration of intelligent strategies and sustainability in itself. The exposition gives the UAE the excellent opportunity to be at the forefront, to show its achievements and participate in the international dialogue offering their solution and vision of the future. Expo 2020 in Dubai will become the life-changing experience for every participant of the event. It is one of those global events one cannot miss.
