Expo City Dubai: Coming Soon

This October, get ready for a city that will transform the world. The previous site of the world-renowned Expo 2020 Dubai is becoming a city of the future: Expo City Dubai. 

"We announce the transformation of the Expo site into Expo City Dubai, a new city that illustrates Dubai's ambitions, after the historic success of Expo 2020 Dubai, which was visited by more than 24 million visitors and left an indelible mark on the 170-year history of World Expos.”

-Sheikh Bin Rashid, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and ruler of Dubai.

Expo City Dubai

When planning Expo 2020 Dubai, the UAE had to face a question that’s commonly proposed when large-scale, temporary events are held, such as the World Cup or the Olympics: what do we do with all the buildings once the event has concluded? Well, Dubai, true to its commitment to sustainable practices, has a plan for that.

That plan is Expo City Dubai, a smart city created from Expo 202 Dubai that will combine sustainability and innovation to create a futuristic city that will change the way we see World Expos and large, international events. Here’s what you can expect from Expo City Dubai:

Standout Exhibitions from Expo 2020 Dubai

A key part of commitments to sustainable development is reusing previous designs and buildings instead of simply destroying them. That’s why some of the most incredible pavilions and parts of Expo 2020 Dubai will be included in the new smart city, giving them both a new purpose and continuing to share their culture and knowledge with both visitors and residents. 

Easy Arrival

You can arrive at one of the city’s 3 main entrances within just a 20 minute drive from Dubai Marina. The city’s metro line also can take you from Dubai city centre to the Expo City or you can take a taxi; in addition, the city is conveniently located near two international airports. 

World-Class Gastronomy 

Dubai’s strong mix of cultures contributes to its wide gastronomic offerings; the city’s commitment to sustainability also is evident in its plastic-free regulation. 

Business Opportunities

Companies like DP World and Siemens have already jumped on the chance to create their home in Expo City Dubai and many more are following suit. For both start-ups and large companies alike, the city’s innovative and creative possibilities present a very attractive opportunity.

STEAM Experiences

Lastly, in accordance with Expo 2020 Dubai’s commitment to encourage growth and learning, Expo City Dubai will offer educational and cultural experiences in STEAM areas (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) to complement regular school programmes.
