A World Expo is the world’s largest mega-event, designed to showcase innovation, celebrate achievements of nations, unveil inventions and promote cultural exchange. Past World Expos have seen the public debut of everything from the X-Ray Machine to ice cream cones, electricity and the mobile phone. To date, 33 cities have hosted a World Expo, from London to Osaka and now, the record-breaking Expo 2020 Dubai.

Taking place October 20, 2020 to April 10, 2021, Expo 2020 Dubai will be the first Expo in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia region in 168 years. It has one of the highest country participations in history, with 192 countries—and for the first time ever, every country will have its own pavilion. An astonishing 125 million visits are expected at this groundbreaking event.
