The World Expo 2020 in Dubai will take place from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
The World Expo has officially kicked off in Dubai, UAE, with an official opening ceremony held on 30 September. The main concept of the event is "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future".
According to the event's organisers, the exhibition will largely focus on three topics — opportunity, mobility, and sustainability. Additionally, important innovations will be presented on the sidelines of the event.
Some 191 countries around the world have confirmed their participation in the exhibition. The number of visitors to the event is expected to reach 25 million.
Last year, Expo 2020 was postponed over health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
