Dubai is all set to host the Expo 2020, the biggest exhibition of its kind that is going to showcase all kinds of innovations from different sectors. This is going to be a landmark event for Dubai as it is going to open up a lot of doors for further industrial and commercial development in this part of the world. When Dubai was declared as the destination of Expo 2020 in Paris back in 2013, it led to massive jubilations in both Paris and Dubai, with fireworks coming out of Burj Khalifa. As the year 2020 approaches, Dubai is getting ready for hosting this massive event which will be attended by innovators by innovators from across the world.
Expo 2020 Dubai will be held in Dubai South which is near the Al Maktoum International Airport. Spread across an area 4.38 square kilometer, the heart of this event is definitely going to be the Al Wasl Plaza. The first look of Al Wasl Plaza for the Expo 2020 was revealed in April 2017 where it was displayed that a dome is going to function as a unique 360° screen at night, effectively projecting images to all the visitors both outside as well as inside. This dome is going to be a huge one, with a 150 meter diameter and a height reaching up to 65 meters. It can accommodate around 10,000 visitors at its peak. It will also be filled with waterfalls, fountains, palm-lined courtyards and parks with a partially opened section at the top. Additionally, each of the participating countries is going to have their own pavilion. The main themes of the event, sustainability, opportunity and mobility will also have pavilions of their own.
The infrastructural development for Expo 2020 Dubai has already started and special developments have been made in the spheres of electricity sub stations, water lines, cabling, roads and telecommunications. The pavilions that are going to be made for the Expo 2020 will include numerous awnings, shades and tensile structures that are going to play a vital role in the success of the event. Already a number of cutting edge designs for Expo awnings are being explored with the sole aim of delivering a stellar experience for all the visitors who are going to be a part of this event. These awnings and tensile structures will also be created to adhere to special themes that are central to various aspects of the exhibition.
In 2018, Luxembourg and New Zealand revealed the designs of their pavilions for the Expo 2020. This was then followed by Germany and Saudi Arabia. The legacy of Expo 2020 will have far reaching effects for the people of the world and especially UAE. Innovations that are to be revealed here will not only change the way of life of people in UAE but also pave the way for developments in practically all segments of the society. Strategic advancements made in different fields will eventually improve the economy and lead to greater levels of satisfaction and happiness.
