In 1851 the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations crowned twenty years of rapid technological and social change, in an event that defined the spirit of the age. The millions of people who travelled to the Crystal Palace London saw what a world made by science and technology could look like.

WHAT IS AN EXPO
EXPO 2020 DUBAI

Key facts and figures

The journey to 2020 has started

We’re inviting people from diverse backgrounds and perspectives, including national governments, businesses, academia, civil society and citizens of the world, particularly the youth to be a part of this shared vision and the lasting legacy it will help us to create.

The 2020 World Expo will not be confined to a physical site, or to a six month period of time. It begins now, wherever people are coming together to think about what could be. Expo will provide a platform to foster creativity, innovation and partnership globally. We aim to work with others to accelerate the development of cutting-edge solutions, and scale them up so that they have a reach and value that stretches far beyond the event itself.
AN EXPO FOR EVERYONE FOR ALL TIME
