The Expo 2020 Opportunity
Expo 2020 Dubai is expected to boost the UAE’s economy by some €17.7 billion, creating 270,000 new jobs. €6.5 billion funding has already been earmarked by the government for Expo 2020 infrastructure and logistics. However, Dubai’s role as a regional trade, tourism and finance hub means that business in the Middle East, North Africa, East Africa, India, Central Asia and farther afield can be expected to benefit before, during and after the World Expo. The Expo is currently estimated to draw 25 million visitors from all over the world to attend, although some estimates run as high as 100 million visitors.
Dubai: A Global Business Hub
With more than 100 major trade exhibitions taking place each year, a busy international conference calendar and a list of high-profile annual sporting events, Dubai’s reputation as an event venue is well-known. It already hosts the largest trade fairs for key industry sectors such as construction, consumer goods, finance, healthcare, IT, telecom and transport. The city’s strategic location, excellent communications infrastructure and business environment have made it a magnet for global brands such as IBM, Fedex, Ford, General Motors, Google, HSBC, Nestlé, Pepsico, Shell, Toyota and many others who have their regional operations based in Dubai.
