    Expo 2020 signs 14-month sponsorship deal with Formula 1 starting with Abu Dhabi GP

    Expo 2020 signs sponsorship deal with Formula 1 to build awareness of World’s Greatest Show

    Expo 2020 Dubai has joined F1 as an official sponsor with a 14-month association that will run from the climax of the 2019 season and throughout next year’s race calendar.

    Formula 1 is a global sport and has a wide-reaching fan base – the perfect stage to showcase the first World Expo in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia region. The association is seen as an ideal fit, combining the World’s Greatest Show of human brilliance and achievement and the greatest motor racing spectacle in global sport.

    Expo 2020’s F1 sponsorship will involve activations to raise awareness of Expo 2020 and will include trackside and digital advertising at seven Grands Prix in 2020.

    To kick-start the association, the first trackside advertising will be seen at the Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on December 1. The trackside advertising will then be at the following Grands Prix in 2020: Vietnam, China, Canada, Great Britain, Singapore, USA and Abu Dhabi.

    Murray Barnett, Director of Sponsorships and Commerical Partnerships, Formula 1 said: “We are excited to be working with Expo 2020 Dubai – the largest coming-together of nations, multilateral organisations, corporations in the history of the region.

    “One of the defining features of Formula 1 is that our events help celebrate the countries we race in. Expo 2020 does the same for 192 countries in one incredible destination. Just like the World Expo, Formula 1 celebrates culture collaboration and innovation.

    “We are very proud to be promoting Expo 2020 in the lead-up to the event across some of our landmark Grands Prix in 2019 and 2020.”

    Anthony Ward, Vice President of Marketing, Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “Expo 2020 Dubai will be a unmissable global celebration that will showcase human ingenuity, international collaboration and futuristic, breakthrough innovations – all of which we see in Formula 1 action throughout the season.

    “With F1‘s like-minded audience, we look forward to building global awareness ahead of Expo 2020’s opening next October through this exciting collaboration with one of the world’s most popular global sports."
