Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, announced that Expo City Dubai will open its doors in early October.
Expo City Dubai is a new destination on the map of ideal destinations for residence, business, and education, and a home for innovation around the world, as well as the latest model for future cities.
“After the historical success of Expo 2020 Dubai, visited by more than 24 million visitors, leaving a mark in the 170-year history of world expositions, today we announce the transformation of the exhibition site into Expo City Dubai, a new city that represents the ambitions of Dubai,” Sheikh Mohammed said in a tweet.
Visitors will be able to visit the UAE and Saudi pavilions, in addition to pavilions of Luxembourg, Australia, Pakistan, India, Morocco, and Egypt.
Expo City Dubai will be plastic-free and will keep 80 percent of the existing infrastructure and buildings, including 123 LEED-certified buildings.
Expo City Dubai will provide a diverse range of opportunities for businesses seeking to achieve long-term success, and it is already attracting a large number of tenants, as the City will soon house the new headquarters of DP World, Siemens, as well as start-ups and small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
