Collaboration will shape Expo2020 Dubai, and provide the springboard to a progressive and sustainable vision for the coming decades. The ultimate success of Expo 2020 Dubai will not only be measured by the number of national participants or international visitors, but also by the legacy the event leaves behind.
With over five years until the event closes in April 2021, planning is already underway to ensure that Expo will deliver lasting benefits for the participants and visitors, for the UAE’s prosperity and reputation, for business, for knowledge creation and for Dubai itself.
The economic legacy will be a result of the financial benefits generated from hosting the event. The investment made by the host city and participants, as well as the expenditure of all incoming visitors and residents, will have a considerable impact on the local economy.
The physical legacy will be the site, iconic structures and its infrastructure which will lie at the heart of the development of Dubai South. This will include a state of the art exhibition centre, academic and research institutions and a technology cluster.
