Last month it was announced that Dubai has been awarded World Expo 2020, and we could not be more thrilled at the Atlanta Vision Clinic. Our beloved city beat three strong competitors — Sao Paulo, Brazil, Izmir, Turkey and Yekaterinburg, Russia — and will be the first destination in the Middle East to host the World Expo.
Dubai’s winning theme is “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.” The city — home to the world’s tallest tower, busiest airport and largest man-made island — has a long history of pioneering new ideas, making it an excellent place to bring the global community together to explore the key points of global development: Sustainability, Mobility and Opportunity.
The World Expos began with The Great Exhibition, held in London in 1851. Since then, the expos are held every five years. The international gatherings draw millions of visitors and allow the global community to bring together ideas, innovations and make progress on major issues of worldly importance with pavilions, exhibitions, and cultural events. The Expo in Dubai will run for six months, From October 20, 2020 through April 10, 2021.
The site chosen for the event spans 1,082 acres and is located between the major international airports of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Dubai is anticipating nearly 70% of visitors will come from outside the UAE. We’re thrilled to hear that preparations are expected to create nearly 277,000 new jobs in Dubai and will inject nearly $40 billion USD into our local economy overall.
