    Etisalat offer helping hand for Volunteers campaign

    The search steps up for 30,000 Expo 2020 Dubai volunteers with launch of new awareness drive with Etisalat

    The search for 30,000 Expo 2020 Dubai volunteers is building momentum with Etisalat announced as the Official Premier Partner.

    Etisalat will launch an awareness campaign and encourage millions of its customers to volunteer in the lead-up to and during the largest event ever held in the Arab world.

    The 30,000 volunteers will have a unique opportunity to play an essential role in Expo 2020 and to give back to the country, by welcoming the world to the UAE and helping to showcase the renowned Emirati culture and national values.

    The Expo 2020 Volunteers programme has already made a number of stops on a nationwide tour in its search for the talented people who will help deliver Expo 2020 from 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021.

    Abeer Al Hosani, Director, Expo 2020 Volunteers, said: “We look forward to working with Etisalat to connect with the volunteers who will play a crucial role in ensuring that Expo 2020 Dubai is the World’s Greatest Show. We have created meaningful roles that will lead to work-ready skills, as well as an exceptional experience that will remain with volunteers for life.”

    Dr Ahmed Bin Ali, Group Senior Vice President, Corporate Communication, Etisalat, said: “We are pleased to extend our partner relationship with Expo 2020 Dubai in finding 30,000 ‘faces’ to be part of this prestigious programme, giving them an opportunity to participate in the largest global event ever held in the Arab world. This is also in line with our brand direction, ‘Together Matters’, which embodies the power of technology in connecting and enriching people’s lives, reflecting the leadership’s principles of promoting co-existence and acceptance.”

    The UAE telecoms operator had been previously confirmed as Expo 2020’s Official Premier Telecommunications Partner and Official Digital Services Partner (jointly with Accenture). Through its partnership, Expo 2020 Dubai has become the first major 5G commercial customer in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region, enabling one of the fastest, smartest and best connected places in the world.

    During Expo 2020, there will be more than 30 volunteering roles – including welcoming guests, guiding visitors around the Expo site and supporting events – with more than 16 million volunteering hours spread across 173 days. Some of these opportunities are already available in the lead-up to Expo.

    Volunteers will gain unrivalled hands-on mega-event experience and practical skills, while meeting people from all around the world to develop international contacts – and having fun at the same time.

    The Expo 2020 Volunteers programme is open to all adult UAE nationals and expat residents, including university students, graduates, homemakers, employees, retirees and people of determination.
