The UAE will host the next World Expo from 2020-21, starting in October 2020. Expo 2020 Dubai will be the first Expo in a history that dates back to 1851 to be staged in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region and the Arab world.
In many ways, Expo 2020 Dubai will follow in the long tradition of Expos, or World Fairs as they have been known. It will be a festival for all, where everyone can learn, innovate, create progress, and have fun by sharing ideas and working together.
Each Expo has revolved around its own main theme to leave a lasting impact on the path of human progress and Expo 2020 Dubai’s will be ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’.
In this way, Expo 2020 Dubai provides a platform to foster creativity, innovation, and collaboration globally. We want to trigger a new age renaissance for a long-term effect in the UAE, MEASA and the wider world.
This is underpinned by three interwoven themes that we see as fundamental in addressing the most pressing issues of our time: Opportunity, Mobility, and Sustainability.
We will build on the ingrained traditions of openness, tolerance and inclusivity of the UAE to stage a World Expo for all ages and backgrounds.
Expo 2020 Dubai will take place at a very important time, with people never before being able to collaborate across the world and fields so easily. Expo has a rare opportunity to accelerate and fully exploit this convergence, where people from all walks of life can come together and explore new possibilities and solutions.
Expo 2020 Dubai is all about the future. The work we are doing now, Connecting Minds, and Creating the Future, is already underway and creating positive outcomes. After Expo 2020 Dubai closes in April 2021, its buildings and structures will find new life to educate and inspire its future visitors and residents.
Beyond that, it will leave a lasting legacy as the UAE continues its progress to an economy based on its human potential, having shown the world a dynamic and welcoming hub for innovation, collaboration and aspiration.
