The global impact of the corona pandemic also has an impact on Expo 2020 Dubai. At the request of the United Arab Emirates, the member states of the Bureau International des Expositions decided to postpone the World Expo in Dubai by one year. It will now take place from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
A World Exposition is a place of discovery and meeting of people of different nations. It connects across borders with the common goal of developing solutions and innovations for a better future. The Expo 2020 Dubai claim "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future" sums it up perfectly.
In 2020, however, the health and safety of all people is more important than ever before. #Stayhome and social distancing protects against further spread of the virus. Unfortunately, an opening of the Expo in October 2020 is not possible under these conditions. We are sure that we will overcome the crisis together and come out of it stronger. We look forward to offering our visitors an unforgettable and entertaining stay in our pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai in 2021 as well.
