Seven years in the making, and now, less than three months to go for the World’s Greatest Show, planning our visits to the Expo 2020 has begun in full swing. Last week, at the global media briefing, the Expo 2020 team addressed some important information for both visitors and the media. From the world chess championship to the world government summit and the world’s largest jiu-jitsu training event, the event is going to be nothing short of a spectacle. The committee also announced that on September 30th, 2021 we can expect to see an opening ceremony like no other.
“Our Expo, which is barely three months away, is the right place, the right time, and the right moment to come together to chart a path to a brighter future,” says Reem Al Hashimy, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director General of Expo 2020 Dubai. “The excitement is building, and we are ready to welcome everyone to an unmissable six-month celebration, the likes of which the world has yet to experience. No two days at Expo will be the same, and with so much on offer, every guest will be inspired to visit as many times as possible, to witness the collaborative power of innovation and collaboration and to join the making of a new world,” she further adds.
