Expo City Dubai has been giving visitors a preview of what to expect as it opened two of its most popular pavilions on September 1. The city — which is the legacy site of Expo 2020 Dubai — will officially open on Saturday, October 1, with more pavilions and experiences on offer.
Admission to the city itself is free. A one-day Attractions Pass priced at Dh120 will initially grant visitors access to the four pavilions. The pass will “evolve to include more pavilions and attractions as they open”.
Children aged 12 and under and people of determination can visit the attractions for free, but have to obtain their complimentary pass at one of Expo City Dubai’s ticketing booths.
Visitors can also opt for individual pavilion tickets, which cost Dh50 per person per pavilion (free for children aged 12 and under and people of determination).
The pavilions and some attractions will be open Monday to Sunday, 10am to 6pm. Some attractions are open 24/7.
1. Surreal Water Feature
This is easily among the most popular attractions at the Expo site, and what’s more, it’s free! Water gushes over immersive walls and then appears to flow back up. According to the city’s website, central spirals produce roaring hydrogen flames and unexpected colours. The whole show is choreographed to surreal music in a collaboration between LA-based WET Design (designers of the Burj Khalifa fountain), and Ramin Djawadi (award-winning composer of the Game of Thrones score).
2. Al Wasl Plaza
Take in the sights and sounds for free under the Expo dome. Known as the beating heart of the expo site, the plaza houses the largest 360-degree projection surface in the world. Named after the Arabic word for ‘connection’, its massive steel trellis dome is 67.5 metres high.
1. Vision Pavilion
This pavilion celebrates the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai. It is inspired by Sheikh Mohammed’s book ‘My Story: 50 Memories from 50 years of Service’. Visitors can learn about his childhood and the experiences that influenced his bold vision for Dubai and the UAE.
2. Around the World
This is an Italian-made carousel with hand painted images of past World Expos. You can sit on a horse, inside a tea cup, a rocking chariot or on a bench.
3. Alif – The Mobility Pavilion
From nine-metre-tall, photo-realistic figures from the Golden Age of Arab civilization to the Emirates Mars Mission, travel through time and discover how mobility evolved over the centuries. Step into the future and check out how artificial intelligence is set to transform cities.
4. Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion
Connect to a forest’s roots and dive into the depths of an ocean depths to explore how humanity has impacted the environment. You will step out of the pavilion pledging to do your bit to protect and preserve the planet for generations to come.
5. Women’s Pavilion
It demonstrates an important principle: When women thrive, humanity thrives. It reaffirms a commitment to gender equality and women’s empowerment, while celebrating women’s achievements and successes, highlighting the challenges they still face, and exploring ways to work together for a more equal world.

in Business, UK&I October 4, 2022 0
The senior leadership team will include newly appointed operations manager Glyn Hughes, formerly operations lead EMEA at Electrosonic, and procurement manager Steph Kenny.
SPOR has appointed Glyn Hughes to the company’s newly formed senior leadership team following significant growth over the past 12 months.
Hughes has joined as operations manager from a senior position at Electrosonic, and will be part of the senior leadership team with Steph Kenny who has been promoted to this role.
As operations manager, Hughes will oversee systems integration, including project management, engineering, commissioning and installation, with a dotted line over to the pre-sales/solutions architect team.
Hughes was head of engineering at Electrosonic in the UK from 2017 before being promoted to operations lead for EMEA in 2021. He has almost 30 years experience in AV, originally starting at Shuttlesound (the then importer of Electrovoice and Crown audio equipment) in 1992, where he worked on theatre and stadium sound systems.
Career highlights include working on the Millennium Dome, where he engineered and ran the site for four zones and the central show. At Wembley Stadium, he ran the site and co-ordinated the installation of 6,500 loudspeakers. And at Dubai Expo 2020, he oversaw the installation of two large pavilions and engineered a third pavilion.
Hughes said: “I am very excited to be a part of SPOR and a part of the journey that they are making. We have ambitious plans for growth and an amazing reputation for a company that is (comparatively) so young. I love the people, the collective attitude and spirit!”
Steph Kenny joined SPOR as a procurement manager in 2020, before joining the senior leadership team this year. She previously worked at AVI-SPL, working her way up from procurement assistant to supervisor and manager within four years, before relocating to the North West.
She added: “I feel hugely privileged to be a part of SPOR’s growth and success, it has been so exciting to watch the team grow and see the company go from strength to strength in such a short period of time. I’m looking forward to embarking on my new role, conquering the challenges, sharing the rewards and continuing on the journey.”

UAE: Amazon opens its largest delivery station in Abu Dhabi, creates hundreds of jobs – Khaleej Times

Tuesday, Oct 04, 2022 | Rabi Al-Awwal 8, 1444
Published: Thu 23 Jun 2022, 2:13 PM
Amazon on Thursday announced the opening of its largest delivery station in Abu Dhabi in time for the upcoming Prime Day event this July.
The 4,700 sqm state-of-the-art delivery station is the second largest in the country and provides same-day and one-day deliveries to customers across the city, including those located in outer areas, such as Al Samha, Al Shawamekh, Yas and Saadiyat Islands, Bani Yas, and Al Wathba.
The new delivery station creates opportunities for hundreds of full and part-time employees in a range of jobs with all kinds of experience, education, background, and skills. From delivery station associates to positions in operations, health and safety, supply chain technology, and analytics, all employees are eligible for training programs that will upskill UAE talent in the future-facing ecommerce sector. The station will also create new opportunities for Delivery Service Partners in the country.
The launch of the new facility follows Amazon’s announcement with the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO) in November last year, detailing the opening of its most technologically advanced Fulfillment Centre in the region that will be opening its doors in the capital in 2023. Both the new Fulfillment Centre and delivery station bolster Amazon’s commitment to advance innovation and technology in the Emirate, in line with Abu Dhabi’s innovation agenda.
Ronaldo Mouchawar, Vice President of Amazon Middle East and North Africa (MENA), said: “Amazon remains steadfast in its commitment to innovating on behalf of our customers. We pride ourselves on working alongside partners such as the Abu Dhabi Investment Office, who share our focus on innovation and providing the right resources and logistics to enable businesses and talent in Abu Dhabi to excel in the digital economy. By empowering the wider ecommerce ecosystem to get products to customers faster and more conveniently, we are ultimately improving the shopping experience for all customers.”
Eng Abdulla Abdul Aziz AlShamsi, Acting Director General of ADIO, said: “The partnership between Amazon and ADIO reflects the ease of doing business in Abu Dhabi and the long-term growth opportunities available in the emirate. Amazon supports our vision for sustained investment in innovation and is bringing the latest logistics technologies to the region. The opening of Amazon’s new delivery station and planned Fulfillment Centre in 2023 will establish Abu Dhabi as a major global hub for ecommerce and logistics.”
Supporting Abu Dhabi’s efforts to encourage innovation, the delivery station operates using Amazon’s global logistics technologies that are built on the company’s 20+ years of operational expertise. Amazon’s new delivery station will support the company in providing a reliable and convenient delivery experience for its customers through same-day and one-day delivery options.
Prashant Saran, Director of Operations for Amazon MENA, said: “Built within Abu Dhabi’s ecosystem of innovation, our new delivery station brings world-class last-mile technology to the logistics and supply chain sector in the capital. The range of jobs at this facility will help to nurture the city’s talent pool and prepare them for the digital future that Abu Dhabi is striding towards. Opening ahead of the upcoming Prime Day event taking place this July on Amazon.ae, the facility and its technology enable us to continue to provide a seamless delivery experience for Prime members across the country.”

UAE jobs: Aviation sector hiring at all-time high as travel demand surges post Covid – Khaleej Times

Tuesday, Oct 04, 2022 | Rabi Al-Awwal 8, 1444
Published: Mon 29 Aug 2022, 4:25 PM
Last updated: Mon 29 Aug 2022, 10:30 PM
Applications to the Emirates Aviation University have almost doubled to the pre-pandemic levels as hiring in the aviation sector has reached an all-time high.
“The shortage of skilled staff in the aviation industry has created huge opportunities for employment,” said Dr Ahmad Al Ali, Vice Chancellor of Emirates Aviation Industry (EAU).
This year, EAU has received almost 3,000 applicants – nearly double the number of applications it had for the 2019- 2020 academic year- for its various undergraduate program. Dr Al Ali said there are many reasons why Dubai is seeing such a huge demand for aviation courses. He said, “Whenever there is a downturn, the aviation industry is one of the first to experience a rebound.”
He added, “Given that the UAE, and particularly in Dubai, is such a hub with four major airlines, it is only natural that more people want to study aviation.”
The recently released Pilot and Technician Outlook by Boeing has predicted that there will be a demand for over 2 million new aviation personnel over the next 20 years to safely support the recovery of commercial air travel and meet rising long-term growth. The Middle East alone will need over 200,000 pilots, technicians and cabin crew during this period.
“The shortage in the aviation industry is huge, to be honest,” said Dr Al Ali. “The industry is struggling for aircraft maintenance, engineers and mechanics. There is also a shortage of staff in airports and airport security. It could be years before the gap between demand and supply can be bridged.”
However, he added that the emirate of Dubai has been fortunate not to face a shortage of staff in the industry because of the city’s ability to rebound quickly. “The impact on UAE is significantly lower than Europe and other regions of the world, partly because we graduate about 400-500 students every year,” he said.
In 2021, the university placed 84% of its graduates in various companies like Dubai Aerospace Enterprise, Airbus and Boeing, apart from Emirates.
Since the Covid-19 pandemic, there has been a shift in focus with lessons learnt during pandemic is now being incorporated into the courses at EAU.
“Mathematical modelling, date sciences and artificial intelligence (AI) is something we are really stressing on in our program,” Dr. Al Ali said. “These are three subjects that go hand in hand and will play a huge role in the future in industries like healthcare and aviation.”
“This is especially because of what happening during the pandemic. Mathematical modelling really played a huge rule during Covid for decision makers. Even now countries are relying heavily on modelling. Data is available but how do you interpret it to get the best out of it? Graduates need to learn these skills.”
In addition to this, the institute is also focusing on research projects. The EAU permits students to work on projects in collaboration with other Emirates entities like Dnata to find solutions for real-world problems. “One of the issues we worked on involved optimizing traffic flow from an airplane into the airport,” he said. “We also now have a PhD program that focuses on mathematical modelling,” he said.
