Expo 2020 Dubai – October 1, 2021 – March 31, 2022 @ Dubai, UAE
Oct 1 2021 – Mar 31 2022 all day
Connecting Minds, Creating the Future

Our once-in-a-lifetime celebration – the largest event ever staged in the Arab world – is set to welcome 190 participating countries, and millions of visitors from across the globe. Here they will experience warm Emirati hospitality at its finest, as well as the UAE’s values of inclusion, tolerance and cooperation. Youth are at the heart of our World Expo. That’s why Expo 2020 aspires to create a meaningful legacy that will benefit generations to come, both locally and globally, spanning everything from innovations and architecture to friendships and business opportunities.

No one could have predicted that our world would come to a pause because of a virus, that millions of lives would be forever changed, that economies would be severely impacted, and social interactions would take a completely different form.

Our journey has taken a different turn, and Expo 2020 will now run one year later than expected, from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022. But this has only strengthened the significance of our founding promise – to connect minds and create the future.

Her Excellency Reem Al Hashimy, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation Director General and Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau, said:
“At Expo we know we need to deliver better than what was planned before. We have the chance to respond to how our world has changed. And so we must seek new definitions of success. We must create an opportunity for the world to come together, not just physically but also virtually. We must achieve tangible positive outcomes. We must inform wisely and inspire utterly, a world that deserves better than it has today.”

We continue to make strong progress as we prepare for a new Expo that will reunite the world in 2021, with far-reaching precautionary measures allowing us to keep all event preparations on track while ensuring the health, safety and well being of everyone working throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

We are excited too about the deeper impact that our new World Expo will have on shaping a better post-pandemic world, as we bring the world together to tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges.

Now, more than ever, we stand as one. At Expo 2020, we look forward to harnessing that power of collaboration and innovation, helping us emerge from this crisis stronger than ever.
