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.
