The Dubai Expo 2020 site will be changed into the Expo City Dubai and soon open its doors to several new residents and businesses, said Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid on Monday, 20 June.

The Vice President and Ruler of Dubai laid out his vision for the legacy site in a series of tweets.


Expo City Dubai will become a “hub of economic activity” and a home to several major companies and their head offices.

The city will open up in different phases, with the Alif and Terra pavilions to make a comeback in September.

With a focus on environment and the technology, it will serve as a destination of its own, operated by the nearest Dubai World Central airport and the metro link with the city centre. The city would also be connected to a port and two airports.

Sheikh Mohammed further wrote, “After the historical success of Expo 2020 Dubai, visited by over 24 million visitors, left a mark in the 170-year history of world exhibitions, today we inform the transformation of the exhibition site in Expo City Dubai, a new city that will represent the ambitions of Dubai.”

Expo City Dubai will be an environment-friendly city that serves families and future generations.

Sheikh Mohammed further wrote, “The magic of Expo will continue.”


Major buildings and some of the most famous attractions from Expo 2020, which was from October 2020 till late March, will remain.

The new city will have a new museum, a world-class exhibition centre as well as the headquarters of cutting-edge & fast-growing companies.

It will persist to host the pavilions of Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Egypt and others.

It will be a city that represents the dreams of every town.

At an on-site briefing, Reem Al Hashimy, managing director of Expo 2020 Dubai, stated the people would be soon able to relive their finest memories of the world’s fair.
