The Arab will be the “Face” of the upcoming Universal Exposition. Here is where you may join up for the volunteer program

The “World’s Greatest Show Under Construction” bus tour, which took place earlier this year, was one of the community engagement initiatives building up to the event.

In December and January, though, you may require a sweater or a location with more efficient air conditioning (like a movie theatre or hotel lobby). Make sure you are wearing shoes that comfortable.

The UAE’s public dress code is typically casual, although respecting the local culture is always a good idea. When visiting places of worship, avoid showing your clothing in malls and restaurants, and cover your head.

How can I purchase Expo 2020 tickets?

Tickets can be purchased on the Expo 2020 website, through a network of approved ticket resellers having a contract with Expo 2020, and on the day of the event at the Expo 2020 door.

A day ticket costs Dh 120 (USD 33) for adults (18 and above), while a 3-day ticket costs Dh 260 (USD 33) and may be used on any three days during the 173 Expo days (USD 71). With 60 live performances each day, innovative technology, performances by world-famous artists, daily fashion shows, cutting-edge architecture, unique festivities, and more than 200 restaurants offering a world of cuisines, your ticket grants you access to a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Is there free admission for youngsters and the elderly?

Children under the age of five and seniors aged 65 and up are admitted free of charge.

What about the pupils, for example?

Teenagers from six to seventeen and students of all ages receive a 50% discount, while some people receive free admission while their supervisors pay half price.

What happens once the fair is over for six months?

The Al Wasl Plaza, for example, would be retained. More than 80% of the Expo 2020 Dubai infrastructure will be operated under the District 2020 framework.

The sustainability pavilion transforms into the planet, the epicenter of science, and a playground for children. The UAE pavilion will stay and be administered by the UAE government, while the mobility pavilion will be converted into a commercial structure.

What is the purpose of the Expo School Program?

During the six months leading up to Expo 2020, the Expo School Program has collaborated with schools in addition, students across the UAE to present them with unique adventures.

What a school can accomplish:

  • Take students to the exhibition site, where they will learn about the UAE’s rich history and legacy at the UAE pavilion, which is designed like a soaring hawk. Learn about other cultures by visiting the 92 nation pavilions.
