Dubai Bids to Host EXPO 2020 under the Theme “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”
As the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) delegation visits Dubai today, numerous UAE government entities and hundreds of companies are supporting Dubai’s bid to host Expo 2020. The proposed Dubai Trade Centre-Jebel Ali site was selected due to its strategic location, equidistant between Dubai and Abu Dhabi and adjacent to the Dubai World Central airport and Jebel Ali Port, providing ease of access for the expected millions of international and local visitors. The site masterplan, which was designed by HOK, Populous and Arup, is a manifestation of the country’s Expo bid theme: Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.
