Excitement for Expo 2020 in Dubai is reaching new heights as the United Arab Emirates prepares to celebrate one-year-to-go across all seven emirates today.
Events around the country, including live performances in Dubai from global superstar Mariah Carey and acclaimed Emirati singer and Expo 2020 ambassador Hussain Al Jassmi, will provide a taster of what visitors can expect when the show opens its doors on October 20th next year.
Expo 2020 will bring the world together, including more than 200 international participants and millions of people, in a spirit of celebration, collaboration and optimism for the future.
For six months, all eyes will be on the United Arab Emirates as it delivers an exceptional expo that entertains, enlightens and unites.
Reem Al Hashimy, director general, Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “As we mark one-year-to-go until the UAE welcomes the world to Expo 2020, these spectacular nationwide celebrations will usher in the final leg of a historic journey and a major achievement not only for Dubai, but for the entire UAE.
“So far, 2019 has been the year of delivery and the Expo 2020 site has been transformed by the completion of key construction milestones such as the Thematic Districts and the crowning of Al Wasl dome.
