    Expo 2020 has achieved 20 million visits to date!

    Almost 70 per cent of visits came from the UAE. Latest figures show that children under the age of 18 have visited more than 2.8 million times.

  2. Even after Expo 2020 Dubai ends in March 2022, the Worlds Fair site will live on as a vibrant business district after the mega event. Once the event finishes, the smart city remains and gets taken over by DISTRICT 2020. District 2020 has estimated a population of about 145,000 people will visit, live and work at the hub over the next 25 years.

    Here are a few snapshot of features that will remain when the Expo site becomes District 2020. Dubai's newest residential and business zone.

    1. Al Wasl Centrepiece- Historical name for Dubai which means "connection" in English.


    2. Terra- (The Sustainability Science Pavilion)


    3- Alif- (The Mobility Pavilion)


    4. UAE Pavilion (Falcon Theme Park)


    5.Kingdom of Saudi Arabia


    6. Gravity- defying water illusion


    7. Garden in the Sky


    8. Exhibition Centre


    9. The Firdaus recording Studio


    10. Bike trails in 15-minute community


    Last but not the least The Rove is one of the two hotels on the 438 hectare site, overlooking Al Wasl Plaza, it will remain as a permanent offering.

    District 2020 had already attracted some of the worlds leading industrial, tech and logistic giants to invest including Siemens, Terminus and DP world.



  3. To my friends and partners who haven't visited Dubai Expo 2020 yet, do it! It's fantastic. Doubtlessly the world's best temporary theme park! Congratulations to all the geniuses involved in this magnetic masterpiece.

    It took me 8 days to visit all the pavilions, so if you have only a day or two, here are my recommendations. I sorted them not by the size of their budget, but by the size of their spirit:

    Syria
    Israel
    Saudi Arabia
    Terra Pavilion
    USA
    Spain
    Pakistan
    Japan
    El Salvador
    Mexico
    Gabon
    Portugal
    Brazil
    South Sudan
    Yemen
    Holy See
    Muslim World League
    African Union
    Iraq
    Turkmenistan
    Suriname
    Ethiopia
    Cambodia
    Jamaica
    Bahrain (for the food)

    You need to book Japan in advance through the expo app, and you only have about 3 minutes between 9am and 9:03am to do so, or else the slots are gone for that day. With Japan's borders closed since March 2020, the adjacent sushi restaurant is the world's only accessible truly authentic outlet — come between 10am-11am and you won't face a queue. Food in the Bahrain and Denmark pavilions is excellent, too. The worst exhibit is Libya's, even the staff wants to get out of that space. Come early, at around 9:30am, and avoid Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at all costs.

    EXPO 2020 will be the first 15-minute city in the UAE.



    After the completion of the world exhibition "EXPO-2020", its site will turn into a residential area, in which the main vehicle will be a bicycle. Thus, District 2020 will be the first 15-minute city in the United Arab Emirates.

    The concept of the 15-minute city brings to the fore walkability. Its essence is that citizens can find everything they need for life in their areas within 15 minutes on foot from their homes. We are talking about shops, social facilities, places of entertainment and so on. The municipality expects to implement the concept by 2030.

    District 2020 is the future vision of Expo2020, a sustainable and human- centric future city which wants to create a global innovation ecosystem that will support Dubai’s future plans and the increase of UAE’s economy.

    “The city is built for the next generation of tech and its Free Zone incentives, strategic innovation policy and prosperity inspire entrepreneurs to take their businesses to the next level. It offers entrepreneurs and start-ups a platform for ease of set up and scale. Its pro-business regulatory environment and global logistics power means entrepreneurs can go from licensing to launch, at pace with a strong network of incubators and accelerators ready to support."

  8. Expo 2020 Dubai legacy plans:



    Once the world's fair draws to close on March 31, work will begin on transforming the $8 billion site into a residential and commercial community. It is estimated that about 80 per cent of the structures will remain in some form. District 2020 will become the country's first “15-minute city”, meaning it will be possible to walk or cycle from end to end without the need for a car.

    The UK has already said it will open a hydrogen innovation centre with the UAE on the legacy site. Italy's government said it will run a “renaissance” legacy project at the site to preserve archaeological artefacts and art recovered from war zones.

  9. Various pavilions now close from time to time, and without notice, due to Covid outbreaks among staff. Japan was closed as of recent. Russia, too. There surely will be more.
