A Gateway To The World’s Emerging Markets
Imagine many of the world’s biggest companies and the most dynamic economies coming together to collaborate in one place, for six months, at the crossroads of the world.
As the first World Expo in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, Expo 2020 Dubai will give participants an unrivalled opportunity to access a region of more than 3.2 billion people, with a collective GDP of more than USD 6.5 trillion.
Taking place in the UAE, Expo 2020 Dubai will be at the centre of it all as the most international World Expo in history.
Two-thirds of the world’s population are just eight hours from one of the UAE’s five major airports, with connecting flights to more than 300 cities in 100 countries. It also hosts the largest maritime terminal in the Middle East, and the second fastest growing port in the world.
The UAE’s role as a leading international business hub will bring participants and businesses closer to the world’s fastest emerging markets with Africa’s booming commercial sector, India’s growing consumer class, and China’s established industries and New Silk Road all within easy reach.
No wonder the UAE is ranked first in MENA for enabling international trade.
As part of Expo 2020, you will have access to this invaluable platform for fostering international relationships, creating new business opportunities and capitalising on the full potential of the youngest global population in history.
It’s no wonder why world class companies from across the globe – including powerhouses such as Emirates Airline, Accenture, DP World, Emirates NBD, Nissan, SAP, Siemens and UPS – have already signed up as partners in the journey to Expo 2020 Dubai.
They will be joined by more than 200 international participants, including 180 countries, corporations, non-government organisations and educational institutions. About 70 percent of the 25 million expected visits will be from outside the UAE, the largest proportion of any World Expo.
In the true spirit of Expo 2020’s theme of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future,’ collaboration will help to accelerate progress in industries of the future and inspire breakthroughs in Expo’s subthemes of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.
Expo 2020 Dubai is not only an opportunity to showcase progress but a global destination to harness the incredible potential of emerging markets, made possible by the UAE leadership’s strategies to ensure businesses thrive, no matter where they come from.
