Expo 2020 Dubai 100 days countdown launch
Expo 2020 Dubai, which will begin on October 1, is expected to attract more than 25 million visitors from all over the world.
In less than 100 days, all roads will lead to Dubai’s South District for the world’s greatest show — the largest international event amid a pandemic.
And when Expo 2020 Dubai opens on October 1, the world shall begin a new phase of recovery, said His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, as he announced the 100-day countdown on Wednesday.
“100 days for the launch of the largest international cultural gathering… 100 days for the meeting of 192 countries in Dubai… 100 days for the launch of the largest international event after the pandemic, so that the world begins a new phase of its recovery,” Sheikh Mohammed tweeted.
Fifty thousand employees worked to complete 192 pavilions while 30,000 volunteers are ready to welcome the world.
Expo 2020 Dubai is the first world exposition being held in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia. Under the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, it will bring together people and ideas from across the world under a single platform to inspire innovations and seek solutions to make the world a better place. Delayed by a year, the Expo promises to be a better and bigger experience for visitors. Organisers are expecting an estimated 25 million visits during the six-month period between October 1 and March 31.
