World Expos are a global gathering of nations dedicated to finding solutions to pressing challenges of our time by offering a journey inside a universal theme through engaging and immersive activities. World Expos welcome tens of millions of visitors, allow countries to build extraordinary pavilions and transform the host city for years to come.
The first World Expo – the Great Exhibition – took place in London in 1851. The concept became popular and was repeated across the globe, demonstrating an unparalleled power of attraction and a record of world-class legacies. World Expos are regulated and overseen by the Bureau International des Expos (BIE) which was created in 1928. They have explicitly been organised around a theme that attempts to improve humankind’s knowledge, takes into account human and social aspirations and highlights scientific, technological, economic and social progress.
In the modern era, World Expos are unrivalled among international events in their size, scale, duration and visitor numbers. They are large-scale platforms for education and progress that serve as a bridge between governments, companies, international organisations, and citizens.
Expo 2020 Dubai is the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA). It will run from October 1st, 2021 until March 31st, 2022 . It is expected to host 25 million visits, with 70 percent of them coming from beyond UAE Serving an area with a collective population of nearly 3.2 billion people.
Under the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, Expo 2020 Dubai is set to provide a platform that fosters creativity, innovation and collaboration globally. This will be underpinned by three interwoven themes that are fundamental in addressing the most pressing issues: Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability. These subthemes represent the three thematic districts of the Expo site.
Expo’s site is located in fast developing Dubai South, directly accessible by road and rail and a short distance from three international airports . The site is also in close proximity to Jebel Ali Port. – The Expo site will house supporting amenities and facilities, including the Expo 2020 Village for participant and staff accommodation, warehousing, logistics, transport nodes, hotels, retail and a public park.
Rwanda at Expo2020 Dubai
The Republic of Rwanda has taken part in the World Expos since 2005 (Japan) and this year again, in Dubai UAE, Rwanda has confirmed its presence and will be located in the “Opportunity” thematic district.
Beyond coffee, tea and handcrafts that took the center stage in Rwanda’s pavilion during the past Expos, this time around, Rwanda looks at showcasing all the excellent strides achieved in the realization of its vision 2020 as well its aspirations for the Vision 2050.
Over the years, Rwanda has positioned itself as a regional ICT hub, a high end tourist destination, a MICE destination, an ideal location to invest in and do business with, a champion of green growth economy in Africa and has improved its connectedness to the rest of the world through its national carrier.
