    “Ladies and gentlemen, we are not closing down, rather powering forward,” said Reem Al Hashimy, the UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director General Expo 2020 Dubai. The minister was referring to the vast world expo site in the south of Dubai – where a new futuristic city is about to open in September/October.
    Officials have recently confirmed that the site’s flagship pavilions, as well as some of its entertainment and technology offerings will still be at the new city. These include the Al Wasl Plaza, the Garden in the Sky observation tower and the Surreal water feature. Alif, the site’s mobility pavilion and Terra, its sustainability pavilion will live on as “interactive educational experiences.” Later this year, the opportunity pavilion will become the Expo 2020 Dubai Museum – a new attraction that will “highlight the history and impact of World Expos and celebrate the success of the six-month event.”


    Other existing infrastructure that will stay include the falcon-inspired UAE pavilion, Saudi Arabia’s award-winning pavilion, the woman’s pavilion, and the vision pavilion. Negotiations are also ongoing for some country pavilions to continue operating in the new city – including reworked versions from Luxembourg, Australia, Pakistan, India, Morocco and Egypt. Dubai Exhibition Centre, the site’s main conference destination, will also remain.


    Cars will not be allowed across the site, and “soft mobility” options will be provided. The city will also not allow single-use plastic within its premises.The buildings will follow international standards of sustainability to reduce water and energy consumption.
    Businesses who want to set up within the new city will also enjoy benefits of a free zone ecosystem. Major firms have already expressed desire to set up shop at the site, including DP World and Siemens.
    Unlike during the six-month event, Expo City Dubai will not have an entrance fee, but individual attractions within will have their own ticketing system.

    New logo for the Expo City




  3. What about the German Pavilion. Is dismantling work going on, too?

  4. If you stay at Rove Hotel, they will allow you to walk around the site. You should ask first if you want to do so.

  5. Awww, that hurts so much to see my favorite world expo being torn down that way!

    Now that Expo 2020 is over, work is being done to create District 2020.



    Dubai is getting ready to welcome District 2020, a ‘smart city’ that will take shape in and around the Expo venue – and in no time emerge as the next big thing when it comes to choosing an office, a home, or a retail space.

    Dismantling of all non-legacy structures at Expo site will be done in 3-6 months.
