    Expo 2020 IPM participants group shot

    International participants hear latest on Expo’s mission for a brighter tomorrow

    A thousand delegates from around the world discuss how Expo 2020 will answer global calls for optimism to create a better future

    How will the first World Expo in the Middle East region harness a spirit of optimism and unite the planet in a quest for a better future? That is a key topic for discussion at the fourth International Participants Meeting (IPM) organised by Expo 2020 Dubai.

    Around 1,000 delegates from around the world are gathering at the latest IPM – taking place from 29-30 November and the largest to date – to hear how Expo 2020 will create an international platform for collaboration that will spark innovative solutions to today’s globally-shared challenges.

    With less than 11 months to go until the opening of The World’s Greatest Show, attendees will receive updates on how Expo-led construction is on track and programming is coming to life, covering top-class food, music, tech, culture, art and creativity from around the planet.

    The fourth IPM comes just months after a Global Optimism Survey, commissioned by Expo 2020 and conducted by YouGov, found that people of all backgrounds in countries around the world were united in calling for more open dialogue, communication and collaboration between individuals and communities.

    Expo 2020, kicking off on 20 October 2020, will be the most inclusive and international in World Expo history, convening 192 countries, plus multilateral organisations, educational establishments and businesses for a global celebration of human brilliance and achievement.

    For six months, it will be a mega-platform for every participant to showcase the best of their cultures and innovations, cementing the UAE’s position as a regional gateway to access new markets and forge new links.

    The latest IPM is attended by government officials, country delegates and commercial partners from around 200 participating countries and organisations, as well as BIE representatives and members of the Expo 2020 Dubai Higher Committee.
