What is an Expo

An Expo brings the world together in a grand and common project to find solutions to a fundamental challenge facing humanity. This challenge is addressed via the Expo’s theme, which acts as a springboard for what participants will showcase and what cultural events will be organised.

In their individual pavilions, countries display and showcase technological innovations and national cultures, engaging with visitors to craft a positive and distinctive national identity. Expos have a transformative power in shaping perceptions of nations and cultures, increasing awareness of the host country and international participants by helping to shape and enhance a nation’s image and reputation.

After Expo 2020

Working in real estate, one of the questions often asked, is “what will happen after Expo Ben?” It seems people have a fear that there’s been all this build up, it will happen and then just disappear. Not the case. In line with the Expo 2020 sub theme of sustainability, 80% of the buildings and structures on site will find life in the thriving future city of District 2020, leaving a meaningful and lasting legacy. It will become a vibrant residential neighbourhood with businesses, retail, and F&B, a place where businesses of all sizes set to thrive, social with cultural and educational facilities to teach the generation of tomorrow. It will be home to the world largest international airport. Surrounding communities are set to prosper. Ask yourself, why do you think Emaar, one of the biggest developers in the world are building their Emaar South community next to the Expo 2020 site?
