World Expositions, which take place every five years and last for a period of six months, are one of the world’s oldest and largest international events. The unexpected COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a wrench into activities all around the world, including the much-anticipated Expo 2020. Originally slated to take place in October 2020, this gala event was postponed for a year and will take place in Dubai this year under the theme “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.” People from all walks of life are invited to attend the festival, where they will have the opportunity to learn, explore, grow, and enjoy exchanging ideas and working together.

UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation Director-General and Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau, Reem Al Hashimy says “Excitement is building, and we are ready to welcome everyone to an unmissable six-month celebration, the likes of which the world has yet to experience. No two days at Expo will be the same, and with so much on offer, every guest will be inspired to visit as many times as possible, to experience the collaborative power of innovation and collaboration, and to participate in the making of a new world.”
Business to be Revamped
With the arrival of Expo 2020, change is coming to Dubai, bringing with it a once-in-a-lifetime chance for anybody starting up or relocating their business here. It’s a high-profile event that will offer the UAE some much-needed favorable publicity. Dubai is the first city in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia (MEASA) regions to hold a World Expo, demonstrating the growing importance as a global leader in the industry. The forthcoming worldwide exposure will enhance industries like tourism, hospitality, and retail, as well as push the boundaries in construction, sustainability, finance, and cutting-edge communications.
Any occurrence of events of this magnitude results in an increase in employment and skilled employees. Expo 2020 Dubai is expected to generate a plethora of possibilities with a large pool of talented individuals and create more than 270,000 new jobs in the UAE. It is also the right time for firms to leverage their products and services and go a bit further to reach your market and increase profitability.
A strong economy serves as a launching pad for new business opportunities. While Dubai has always been a good investment for everyone from startups to multinational organizations, the event is projected to bring in up to $35 billion in revenue, as well as up to $150 billion in foreign investments through industries including retail, hospitality, and real estate.
The six-month duration of this mammoth event will give entrepreneurs and SMEs the opportunity to network with other organizations, businesses, and institutions from across the world and form long-term profitable relationships. It will also be a place to learn how your company may profit more from untapped areas of market opportunities in the near future. World Expos are unparalleled in terms of scale and influence among international events. With tourists, publicity, and a boost to the economy, it’s critical and high time for companies to seize the opportunity before it’s too late.
Expo 2020 Dubai aspires to harness the potential of global cooperation and innovation in order to emerge stronger and united than ever from the current crisis. The organizers toil hard to assure health and safety in this prevailing covid 19 crisis, which includes the installation of sanitization stations across the site, the wearing of obligatory face masks, the application of social-distancing regulations, and progress is being made to keep the event preparation on track without any difficulties.
