Dubai Expo on-track for October 2021


Having made the decision back in May to postpone Dubai’s Expo 2020 until 1 October 2021 – 31 March 2022, the organiser has confirmed that it is on track with preparations for the new date, which is almost one year later than originally expected. Aside from the change of date, the nature of the expo will also be a little different with the organiser stating that social interaction will take a “completely different form”, hinting at a virtual as well as physical element to the event.

“At Expo we know we need to deliver better than what was planned before,” commented Her Excellency Reem Al Hashimy, UAE minister of state for international cooperation director general and Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau. “We have the chance to respond to how our world has changed. And so we must seek new definitions of success. We must create an opportunity for the world to come together, not just physically but also virtually. We must achieve tangible positive outcomes. We must inform wisely and inspire utterly, a world that deserves better than it has today.”

The organisation states that it continues to make strong progress in preparation for a new expo in 2021, with far-reaching precautionary measures taking place to keep all event preparations on track while ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone working throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

Dimitri Kerkentzes, secretary general of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), the intergovernmental organisation in charge of World Expos, recently stated on twitter that construction of the pavilions is progressing well and is due to be completed by the end of this year. Delegates from more than 190 countries, as well as commercial partners, government officials, members of the Expo 2020 Dubai Higher Committee and representatives from the BIE recently convened virtually to show their progress and commitment towards the expo’s shared goals as preparations gather pace. “After four days of fruitful discussions and productive meetings as part of Expo 2020 Dubai’s 5th International Participants Meeting, organisers and participants are more than ever geared up to deliver a truly exceptional World Expo in 2021,” said the BIE.

Dubai Expo 2020 was originally scheduled to take place from 20 October 2020 – 10 April 2021.
