The Benefits of Becoming an EXPO 2020 Corporate Partner

- Greg Hastings

EXPO 2020 will reshape the way business is done in the UAE; the event will positively impact the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and wider Middle East, and Africa Asia region. As the first-ever EXPO to be held in the region, EXPO 2020 will definitely have an impact beyond the borders of Dubai and the UAE.

Experts say beyond commerce, there is a significant human development dimension to the EXPO, with job and investment creation expected to benefit the regional economies. The construction, tourism, leisure and hospitality sectors have obvious potential to benefit from development spending and job creation. Technological Innovations in alternative and conventional energy as well as engineering, logistics and Urban Planning will likely see many opportunities.

In a city where hotel occupancies are high already, EXPO 2020 is estimated to require an additional 50,000 rooms across over 200 properties, which is expected to create 100,000 new jobs in tourism and hospitality. So how can your business become directly involved with EXPO 2020?
