The World Expo is one of the oldest and biggest events on the planet. Every five years, a city takes its turn to host the occasion, which lasts six months at a time (Oct 1, 2021 – March 31, 2022) and invites every country in the globe to take part in showcasing the best of what they have to offer.
Its aim is to help people and nations across the Earth learn by sharing ideas, at the same time demonstrating innovation and further paving the path for progress in fields such as technology and architecture. Which city will host is determined by the Bureau International des Expositions, and the gatherings of minds at the World Expo also means having fun with a new theme every five years.
The next World Expo 2020 Dubai has the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’ at its core and takes place from October 1, 2021 until March 31, 2022. On November 27, 2013, the UAE was elected as the host country of World Expo 2020 during the 154th General Assembly of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE). This was the outcome of the voting of the 164 nation members. Dubai won by a resounding majority of 116 votes and Expo 2020-Dubai is the first World Expo in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region.
