2020 is going to be an exciting year as Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is hosting the upcoming World Expo, known as Expo 2020 Dubai. This is the first World Expo to be hosted in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region.
Expo 2020 Dubai will not be just another venue for World Expo because it is slated as The World’s Biggest Expo. Covering an area of 4.38 sq km, by visiting one location, visitors are able to see 192 countries and their exhibitions.
This is a first for World Expos, not only in terms of floor space, but also in the number of participating countries. In fact, each country will have its own pavilion, with a specific theme that is in line with the main theme of Expo Dubai 2020: Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.
To be hosted for six months from 20th October, 2020 until 10th April, 2021, Expo 2020 Dubai is set to welcome 25 million visitors from around the world, who will experience the warm Emirati hospitality at its finest.
