The established event will take place at the World Trade Centre in the Expo 2020 host city Dubai. The city will host the first world expo to take place in the Middle-East Africa or South Asia. Dubai World Trade Centre is the region’s largest purpose-built complex for events and exhibitions. Dubai has a fully integrated public transport system allowing visitors to travel by taxi, bus and car. Dubai metro is the unique feature which has already hailed as the world’s longest fully automated metro network spanning 75 km and serving 46 stations on two lines. The plans for 2020 are impressive.
