Engaging with the private sector and the broader business community will be imperative in achieving our vision for a truly exceptional World Expo. We understand the importance of ensuring that business leaders and decision-makers are part of the journey as Dubai prepares to welcome over 200 participants and many millions of visitors in 2020.
Equally, much of the Expo's legacy will be defined by the economic growth and job creation from the commercial opportunities it triggers. Strong engagement and long-lasting business partnerships will play a key role in helping bring these objectives to life.
Read on to find out more about how our business development and integration activities are engaging and empowering like-minded individuals and world-class organisations from across the globe.
