Today (October 1, 2022) marks one year since the start of Expo 2020 Dubai and for visitors it was an emotional reunion at Expo City Dubai as it opened its doors amid some favourite attractions.
The legacy of Expo 2020 Dubai, Expo City Dubai aims to build on its resounding success by retaining 80% of Expo-built infrastructure. The Vision Pavilion and the Women’s Pavilion are now open, in addition to Alif, The Mobility Pavilion and Terra, The Sustainability Pavilion, which opened in September. Visitors can also buy tickets to the Garden in the Sky observation tower and enjoy free daily access to the Surreal water feature and Al Wasl Plaza.
Around 50 Expo City Dubai staff and their families opened the Sustainability Entry Portal, welcoming the public and heralding the advent of a new era. The Al Wasl reawakened in spectacular style, with a spellbinding light show to celebrate the collaborative, creative and optimistic spirit of this innovation-driven city of the future.
A clean, green, innovation-driven, human-centric city of the future, Expo City Dubai is designed as a blueprint for sustainable urban planning, galvanising action on its journey to net-zero. It also provides a business ecosystem that embraces technology and digital innovation.
Emotional reunion at Expo City Dubai was also facilitated by the return of some of Expo 2020 Dubai’s most popular food and beverage vendors. These include traditional Emirati Al Fanar Restaurant & Café, ECCO Pizza & Pasta with its hearty Italian fare and the popular Albaik from Saudi Arabia. Further there are several food trucks including the likes of The Mattar Farm Express, B Café, Wofl, Tropicool, Daily Dose and Milky Ice Cream from Poland, as well as French cuisine from La Serre. More outlets will be unveiled soon.
