    Dubai Exhibition Centre to host major events under deal with events giant Informa

    Middle East Film and Comic Con and 20th Cityscape Global among those to feature throughout Expo 2020 run



    Dubai Exhibition Centre has added to its roster of major business and entertainment events, further cementing Expo 2020’s status as the world’s greatest meeting of minds.

    Expected to attract thousands of attendees from across the world, the events will be organised during the six months of Expo 2020 by Informa – one of the world’s leading international events, market intelligence and scholarly research groups.

    They include the 20th Cityscape Global, the largest real estate investment and development event for emerging markets globally that will run between 10-12 November next year.

    Middle East Film and Comic Con, the region’s biggest festival of pop culture and gaming, will also take place at DEC in early March 2021 with an expected attendance of more than 45,000 people.

    The agreement with UK-headquartered Informa follows the announcement of other major events to be held at DEC during Expo 2020, including the World Government Summit and the Global Islamic Economy Summit, both of which will take place in November 2020, as well as the Global Business Forums on Africa, Latin America and ASEAN and World Chambers Congress 2021.

    The co-location of Expo 2020 and the Dubai Exhibition Centre – on the doorstep of the Dubai Metro Route 2020 – provides a unique opportunity for business delegates to network with Expo 2020’s more than 200 participants, including nations, global multilateral organisations, businesses, educational institutions and millions of visitors.

    Delegates can experience all that Expo 2020 has to offer from entertainment, cuisine, cultural events, architecture, to innovation, customised journeys and immersive exhibitions.
