Dubai Expo 2020: All countries gather for grabbing and providing new opportunities

Expo 2020 is a world expo, where this time all the countries are gathering in Dubai Exhibition Centre, Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). 

Earlier, it was scheduled for October 20, 2020, to April, 10,2021, but to the pandemic Covid-19, it was postponed for October 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022.

However, it is still Expo 2020 due to marketing and branding reasons.

Administration

The main site of Expo 2020 is located in the area of 1083 acres located near Dubai’s southern border with Abu Dhabi. Reem Al Hashmi has organized it.

 An American firm, HOC, has designed its master plan. On September 30, 2021, the opening ceremony took place, which was live-streamed in 430 locations. 

Theme

The theme of the Dubai Expo 2020 is Connecting Minds, Creating the Future. This expo has three subthemes- Opportunity, Mobility, and Sustainability, each having its own pavilion. 

AGi Architects design the Opportunity Pavilion.

Terra’s sustainability pavilion includes the sustainability pavilion, a district stage consisting of 300 seats, and a walk through waterfall Brazil’s national pavilion, Czech Republic’s- water the desert, then enters Singapore’s rainforest, Germany’s wear cutting-edge devices, Netherlands’s- a miniature world pavilion. 

The Mobility pavilion includes the world’s largest passenger lift which is capable of transporting more than 160 people. 

Opening Ceremony

There were 3,000 people present as an audience inside Al Wasl Plaza and millions across the globe joined to view the ceremony virtually. The inspiration for the Expo 2020 Dubai logo- a golden ring of connectivity- was raised in Al Wasl Plaza.

 

Idea behind The Logo

The inspiration behind the new Dubai Expo Logo 2020 is a ring found at a 4000-year-old archaeological site in the desert. The land where the ring was found connected many ancient civilizations, explained H.H. Sheikh Mohammed, Ruler of Dubai and Vice President of UAE.

This design shows that the land of Dubai connects the ancient civilizations with deep roots, and the country will remain a hub that connects the world. 

The flags of the 192 participating countries in the Dubai Expo 2020, was then revealed via a domino effect where flags were opened one by one. It was a proud and beautiful moment to visualize.

 

Mascots of the Event

The six mascots of the event are Rashid and Latifa-: an eight and nine-year-old brother-sister duo; Salama- a ghaf tree; Alif, Opti, and Terra are the guardians’ mascots for the mobility, opportunity, and sustainability pavillions, respectively.
