Dubai EXPO 2020 to boost tourism industry of Dubai

In November 2013 in Paris, Dubai marked an important milestone by bagging the bid to host the first ever World EXPO in the MENASA (Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia) region. As one of the world’s most key events drawing millions of people, the Expo serves as an economic, social and political catalyst that attempts to open new doors for innovation, mutual aid, best trade practices, and most importantly, market growth. Accordingly, this momentous triumph is expected to bring an overall positive impact on the UAE’s economic landscape.

As EXPO 2020 will call Dubai it’s home for six months from 20th October 2020 to 10th April 2021, perhaps the most significant of the sectors to benefit from this phenomenal feat is tourism, along with other five key sectors including hospitality, real estate, transport, retail, and banking. Dubai is already a key tourist center attracting about 10 millions of visitors per year. Thanks to its architectural icons, unmatched infrastructure facilities, and breathtaking cultural and heritage sites. And with the hosting of World Expo 2020, this figure is anticipated to rise by 25 to 30 million.

Needless to say, Dubai is expected to have an astounding economic boost with literally the whole world is set to make its way into the city.
