Get involved with EXPO 2020 DUBAI's legacy; DISTRICT2020 this October in Dubai at DSRPTD2021

EXPO 2020 DUBAI the largest event on the planet and the world's biggest show in history is kicking off this 1st of October 2021 til the 31st of March 2022. We all have the power to build a better world and shape the future. Discover what makes Expo 2020 Dubai unique and how we’re ‘Connecting Minds and Creating the Future’ through sustainability, mobility and opportunity, and this exactly is what EXPO 2020 DUBAI is all about to change the way you see the world as you explore 191 country pavilions and a host of signature pavilions.

Never in the history of World Expos have so many nations and so many cultures gathered together to do so much good for so many people. And the journey doesn't end here, what happens after the EXPO 2020 DUBAI is set to change how you see the future of sustainability, mobility, and entrepreneurship and business.

Transitioning into District 2020, the Expo 2020 Dubai site will live long after EXPO 2020 DUBAI closes its doors at the end of March 2022. This sustainable, human-centric smart city will reuse at least 80% of the Expo-built infrastructure, including LEED Gold and Platinum-certified buildings. As an integrated mixed-use community, it will carry on and fulfil Expo’s founding vision to be an ecosystem to connect, create and innovate.

District 2020 will evolve from Expo 2020 Dubai as a human-centric future city centered on the needs of its urban community. It will provide a curated innovation-driven business ecosystem that brings together global minds and embraces technology and digital innovation to support industry growth. Following the six months of the World Expo, District 2020 will re-purpose 80% of the Expo’s build environment into an integrated mixed-use community that will continue to attract businesses and people to work, live, visit and enjoy. District 2020 had been designed to support the future of working and living, and facilitate connection and collaboration. It will be home to an inclusive and diverse community seeking a more balanced way of life – a place that prioritizes well-being, inspires new ideas, facilitates growth and enables human potential.
