Dubai Police in collaboration with Expo 2020 Dubai have set a new Guinness World Record for creating the ‘Largest online video chain of people passing and wearing a self-adhesive badge/sticker’.
A total of 265 people from 193 nationalities and 192 Country Pavilions said “Thank you Expo 2020” on camera in their national languages before virtually handing the Expo 2020 Dubai badge, or pin, to one another via split screens.
The three-minute video chain was adjudicated by Guinness World Records-MENA and took 48 hours to film.
Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, UAE Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence and Commissioner General of Expo 2020 Dubai; Reem Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director General of Expo 2020 Dubai, and Major General Ahmad Mohamed Rafee, Acting Assistant Commander-in-Chief for Administration Affairs at Dubai Police, attended the award ceremony to recognise the achievement at Dubai Millennium Amphitheatre on Monday.
Speaking after the ceremony, Lieutenant Hamad Khalil Obaid Al Bishri of Dubai Police said: “Along with creating a safe and secure environment at Expo 2020 Dubai we wanted to create a unifying message of equality that Dubai thrives on. We decided to bring all the pavilions together, under one flag of connecting minds and building a healthy future. After only one week of collaborative efforts with different pavilions we started filming, and achieved our goal of producing our message.”
