Expo bid partners
The UAE bid team has welcomed a number of partnerships with companies wishing to lend support to the 2020 World Expo campaign. There are three tiers of partnerships:
Six of the United Arab Emirate’s most successful companies have announced their official support for the campaign to host the 2020 World Expo in Dubai.
The six “Premier Partners” of the UAE’s World Expo 2020 bid are: Dubai Airports, Emirates Airline, Emirates NBD, Etisalat, DP World and Jumeirah Group.
Each of the partners will engage in a wide range of activities to promote the country’s efforts to host the first Expo ever in the Middle East, Africa and Southeast Asia region. The benefits that these internationally renowned companies will bring to the campaign will be far reaching, attracting global recognition for the bid through their numerous overseas operations.
His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman of the Emirates Group, and Chairman of the Higher Committee for Hosting the 2020 World Expo in Dubai said of the new Premier Partners: “We are extraordinarily pleased that five of the leading companies in the UAE have joined this important national effort, underlining our country’s commitment to the bid.
“With their active support, the UAE is now even more strongly positioned to be selected as the host nation for this celebration of new ideas and global partnerships, which will provide enduring benefits for future generations – here at home and across the world.”
The Higher Committee for Hosting the 2020 World Expo announced that it will further expand this partnership network, welcoming additional firms and organisations that share a commitment to achieving the nation’s strategic goal.
Lead Partners will work with the Dubai, UAE Expo 2020 team to raise awareness about the UAE’s bid to host Expo 2020 in Dubai.
The Dubai Department for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) was recently named as a Lead Partner. DTCM will work with the Expo team through a series of ongoing outreach initiatives which include hosting conventions, branding and distribution of informational material across Dubai.
The lead partnership network will be further expanded, with Dubai, UAE Expo 2020 welcoming additional firms and organisations that share a commitment to achieving the nation’s strategic goal.
