A brief history of the Expo


Excitement is building as the city gears up for Expo 2020, but some are asking – what even is an Expo?

World Expos have helped humanity make sense of change and global developments through education, innovation and cooperation.

Initially the Expo was focused on industrial revolution and colonial ambitions. After World War II, the fairs promoted human progress and international dialogue. Since the 2000s, Expos have taken on a significant role to raise awareness on the importance of sustainable development and addressing challenges of our time.

The Eiffel Tower, Crystal Palace, Heinz Tomato Ketchup, IMAX … let’s see what Dubai’s Expo brings!
