His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has announced the opening of Expo City Dubai in October 2022. The new city is an ideal smart and futuristic place for business and innovation, driven by sustainability, innovation, education and entertainment.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid said, “Expo City Dubai will be an eco-friendly city, good for families, the economy and future generations. A city connected to the port and two airports, and with beautiful memories in the hearts and minds of millions of people. A city where the magic of the Expo will live on: Al Wasl will continue to shine, the waterfall will continue to delight, and the UAE, Alif and Terra pavilions will continue to enchant visitors of all ages.”
“This new city will be home to an extraordinary new museum, a world-class exhibition centre and the headquarters of cutting-edge and fast-growing companies. It will continue to be home to pavilions of Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Egypt and other countries. It will be a city that embodies every city’s dreams, and a city that continues to bring joy to our children, our families and all those we love.”
Expo City Dubai – the legacy plan for Expo 2020 Dubai and part of the Dubai 2040 urban master plan – builds on the momentum and resounding success of the six-month World Expo to create an eco-friendly, tech-savvy city of the future.
The comprehensive city with a variety of attractions will feature offices, leisure facilities, restaurants and entertainment venues, sports facilities and a shopping mall. It will be accessible by the Dubai Metro and will also be home to the world-class Dubai Exhibition Centre (DEC), a sought-after venue that hosted a number of global summits, conferences and concerts during Expo 2020 Dubai, DEC will continue to host various conferences, events and activities.
Expo 2020’s three most visited attractions – the iconic Al Wasl Plaza, the Garden in the Sky observation tower and the Surreal water feature – will remain. The Alif Mobility Pavilion and the Terra Sustainability Pavilion will continue their lives as interactive educational events.
Later this year, the Opportunity Pavilion will become the Expo 2020 Dubai Museum, a new addition highlighting the history and impact of World Fairs and celebrating the success of the six-month event.
Other attractions that will remain include the Women pavilion, which showcases women who can change the world, and the Vision pavilion, dedicated to the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid.
Visitors will also be able to explore the UAE falcon-inspired pavilion and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia pavilion. Details of several other countries’ pavilions, including redesigned versions of Luxembourg, Australia, Pakistan, India, Morocco and Egypt, will be announced in the coming months.
Offering ample business opportunities that meet sustainability goals, Expo City Dubai is already attracting the interest of a large number of commercial tenants. It will soon become the new headquarters for DP World, Siemens, and start-ups and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
