The UAE are putting forward a bid for the 2020 World Expo and, if chosen, it has already been decided that the Dubai Trade Center – Jebel Ali will be the venue for the event. If Dubai have success as the candidate city, it will blow all previous Dubai exhibitions out of the water, with millions of visitors from across the globe expected during the six month hosting period. The World Expo is the globe’s most renowned cultural, social and scientific celebration where innovators and forward-thinkers come together to discuss advancements for the future. If the UAE is selected as a host country, it will be the first time that exhibition has been held in the MENASA region as a whole.
The Dubai Trade Center will make the ideal venue for numerous reasons; its 438 hectare site and excellent conferencing/exhibition facilities are just one. The logistical benefits of the Dubai Trade Center – Jebel Ali are also clear, being an equal distance from the centre of Dubai and Abu Dhabi and being located nearby the Jebel Ali port and the Al Makhoum International airport.
It is thought that the venue would become a working monument to collaboration if it is used for the World Expo. The event has always been an important meeting point for individuals, organisations and countries to come together however it is the UAE’s theme that will really encourage connected thinking – the UAE World Expo bid 2020 theme is: Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.
In addition to the proposed theme, the UAE committee have put together three further subthemes for exhibitors and visitors to focus on. These are: the sustainability of energy and water across the world, the global opportunities for economic growth and the need for more integrated global transport and logistics systems. Despite these themes, there are no real restrictions when it comes to discussing world advancements. The World Expo is a brilliant opportunity to tackle many other issues of international importance, from poverty and the economic crisis, to transnational tensions and unemployment.
