Expo 2020 Project
More than a century-and-a-half of World Expos have showcased life-changing inventions and cultural treasures. The first World Expo, held in 1851 at the Crystal Palace in London, showed what a world that embraced science and technology could look like.
Expo 2020 Dubai continues this history with a promise to hold an inclusive and global event with more than 200 participants from around the world – from unlocking development opportunities for the next generation, to reimagining how people move and connect, to finding sustainable solutions around energy and water. Today, new innovations are being created that, five years ago, would have been unimaginable.
Expo 2020 will be a showcase of human brilliance and achievement. The engines of growth are no longer steam-powered. Instead, collaboration and partnership have taken its place, becoming the driving force behind new developments. The event will showcase and explore what is possible when new ideas and people connect.
In a joint venture with Jacobs, Mace was appointed in 2014 to help deliver the real estate for the event and is helping transform the Expo site in Dubai South. The programme of works, which consists of more than 33 individual projects, will provide this area of the city with a sustainable and lasting legacy and transform it into a destination capable of hosting 300,000 visitors a day, providing a truly inspiring and entertaining Expo experience.
