An announcement has been made that Expo City Dubai would open in October by the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
As a result of its focus on sustainability, innovation, education, and entertainment, the new city has emerged as a prime location for business and innovation.
Dubai’s Expo City is scheduled to become the United Arab Emirates’ newest free zone, which will soon house the headquarters of renowned firms including DP World and Siemens, among others.
Plastic-free, pedestrian-only cities will be the norm in the green, tech-enabled cities of the future.
“We have set new benchmarks for future global events to follow the UAE’s signature approach of cooperating with all for the good of all. We continue to carry out the vision of our leadership at Expo site, which has grown to become a globally significant landmark,” said Sheikh Ahmed on the eve of the launch of Expo City Dubai, which will come up at the Expo 2020 site.
On Monday, Reem Al Hashimi, Expo’s Director-General and UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation, gave a keynote speech at the Bureau International des Expositions in Paris.
Despite the global epidemic, the Expo 2020 attracted 24.1 million visitors, she added.
“Expo Dubai is set to be a vibrant, human-centric smart city driven by sustainability innovation, education, and entertainment. Built around the principles of sustainability and home to more than 120 LEED-certified buildings, Expo City Dubai is designed as a blueprint for ‘green’ urban planning,” he said.
More than 80 percent of the infrastructure and buildings that have been built will be retained, including 123 LEED-certified buildings, which represent the highest standards of sustainable design, construction, and management.
Expo City places a high value on physical fitness, as seen by its 10 kilometers of bike paths, 5 kilometers of running paths, and 45,000 square meters of parks and gardens.
The Expo 2020 Dubai Pavilions, entertainment, and technological options, and the event’s enchantment, energy, and excitement will all be on display when the pavilions open on October 1.
Attractions like the renowned Al Wasl Plaza, the Garden in the Sky, and the Surreal water feature will all be around for visitors at Expo 2020. It’s only a matter of time before Alif and Terra become interactive instructional experiences.
Visitors will also be able to see the falcon-themed UAE Pavilion and Saudi Arabia Pavilion. Details on additional pavilions, including revised versions of Luxembourg, Australia, India, Pakistan, Morocco, and Egypt, will be released in the coming months.
In early September, the Terra and Alif pavilions of Expo City Dubai will open their doors to the public.
