How much would you pay for a once-in-a-lifetime experience?
Expo 2020 has announced great value tickets and extensive concessions for the next World Expo, set to attract millions of people from around the globe for six months of entertainment, innovation, discovering and, crucially, fun.
A single-day adult ticket (aged 18 and over) will cost AED 120 (USD 33) and give access to 60 live daily shows, future-shaping technologies, performances by world-famous artists, parades, cutting-edge innovations and architecture, special celebrations and more than 200 F&B outlets serving more than 50 cuisines.
It is unlikely that one visit will be enough. A three-day pass – which costs AED 260 (USD 71) and can be used on any three days of the 173-day event – lets visitors discover Expo 2020’s 4.38 sqkm site, including the Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability districts and the 192 Country Pavilions.
The great value ticketing also grants complimentary access for people of determination, while their carers enter for half price. Children aged five and below enter for free, as do seniors aged 65 and over, while youngsters aged six to 17 and students of all ages will get a 50 per cent discount.
With less than 550 days to go until the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region, Expo 2020 revealed its ticket prices at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2019 held in Dubai.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public in April 2020, although visitors will be able to buy monthly and season passes directly from Expo from Q4 2019 – details to be announced later. Single-day and three-day tickets will be offered to international travellers in bundled packages to be sold by Authorised Ticket Resellers, contracted with Expo 2020 starting May 2019.
