“Since its inception, Expo 2020 Dubai has been committed to harnessing cutting-edge technology to provide visitors with an enriched experience, both onsite and wherever they may be in the world,” said an Expo 2020 spokesperson.
“Given the impact of the pandemic over the past year, we have been working hard to refine our virtual offering as a complement to the physical event. A Virtual Expo will act as sneak peek and reach audiences who are unable attend due to distance or special circumstances, widening the reach of Expo both digitally and physically,” the spokesperson said in a statement to Khaleej Times.
The six-month upcoming exhibition will be the largest business event to be held since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic last year.

“We are committed to ensuring that every visitor’s experience, whether digital or physical, is special. We want to leverage tomorrow’s technology to excite and inspire, creating entirely new types of experiences, a first for a World Expo. We remain committed to bringing the world together and look forward to sharing more of our exciting plans for Expo 2020 Dubai in due course,” said the spokesperson.
The six-month long mega event will also be visited by millions of people virtually.
“Expo 2020 Dubai looks forward to welcoming millions of visitors from around the world, with millions also expected to attend the Virtual Expo. The Virtual Expo will reach audiences who are unable attend due to distance or special circumstances, widening the reach of Expo both digitally and physically,” said the statement.
