Dubai Bids for EXPO 2020

Dubai has submitted a bid to host the World Expo in 2020. Under the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, the bid document explains that the city would host the prestigious world fair at the Dubai Trade Centre and lists detailed planning for event visitors, financial costs, environmental impact and the legacy it will leave.

The Expo is a chance for each participating country to showcase its national brand as well as facilitating the exchange of ideas and research between nations, generations and cultures.

Reem Al Hashimy, UAE Minister of State and Managing Director of the Higher Committee for Hosting the 2020 World Expo in Dubai said: "We have prepared a distinctive dossier to convey an authentic portrait of our nation and its vision to deliver an unforgettable World Expo in the UAE. Dubai Expo 2020 aspires to be a celebration of innovative new partnerships offering enduring benefits for future generations. I am confident that the Bid Dossier is a thorough piece of work and a deep portrayal of our capability to host such a mega-event on the eve of our 50th anniversary."

Dubai is competing against four other candidate cities; Ayutthaya (Thailand); Ekaterinburg (Russia); Izmir (Turkey) and Sao Paulo (Brazil). The winning city will be announced in November 2013 following a vote by the 161 member nations of the BIE.
