About World Expo

Expo is the world’s largest international event showcasing the world’s greatest innovations ranging from the arts to technological advances. Occurring every five years, World Expo (World’s Fair) was born in London in 1851. Lead by Prince Albert, the event took place in The Crystal Palace, a majestic cast iron and glass structure designed by Sir Joseph Paxton. The aim was to celebrate the worlds latest technological advances and modern manufacturing.

Expo Dubai 2020

The UAE is the first country in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia region to host a World Expo. An astonishing mega-event is expected to attract over 25 million visitors to discover life-changing innovations during its six-month run.
