    The World’s Greatest Show in the Making Tour!
    This summer, we welcomed the people of the UAE to the Expo 2020 construction site for an exclusive sneak peek at some of the Expo’s most iconic structures and a glimpse of how we’re getting ready to welcome the world.

    People in the UAE have been behind Expo 2020 since the very beginning, and we were honoured to open our doors to more than 3,000 people of over 75 nationalities for guided bus tours and the opportunity to explore the Expo 2020 Visitor Centre.

    The World’s Greatest Show in the Making Tour has concluded, but don’t worry! There are many more fun and exciting opportunities for everyone to be part of the Expo story. Be amongst the first to know what’s next and don’t miss out by signing up to our newsletter.
