Expo 2020 Dubai is the first ever universal expo going to be held in the Middle East, Asia and South Africa (MESA) region. Two-third of the world’s population can reach Dubai within 8 hours. Hence, chances are high for millions of people to attend this expo that would continue for six months, starting from October 20, 2020, to April 2021. Almost 180 countries of the world are likely to participate in the event.
It was a success for U.A.E to win the bid as there were other potential host venues including Izmir in Turkey, Sao Palo in Brazil and Yekaterinburg in Russia. But holding the Expo 2020 in the Middle East would allow population and businesses of developing countries to benefit from mutual sharing of ideas.

The central theme of Expo 2020 is Connecting Minds Creating Future which means that fair would allow people and businesses to meet and share their ideas for finding solutions and promoting growth for an advanced future. The other sub-themes include Sustainability, Mobility, and Opportunity.
