District 2020 hosts the World Expo

Expo 2020 Dubai will be the first World Expo to be hosted in the MEASA region. Following the six-month World Expo, District 2020 will continue to fulfill Expo 2020’s vision of connecting minds with a space designed and built to push the boundaries of architecture, smart technology, and sustainability.

District 2020 will be repurposing over 80% of Expo 2020’s built environment to create a vibrant community that will become the home, workplace, and retreat for those who thrive by connecting with others, living in a centre for innovation.
