Education & Culture – Expo City Dubai


Before Expo City Dubai, there was Expo 2020 Dubai. From 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022, the first World Expo ever hosted in the Middle East fulfilled its promise of connecting minds and creating the future. Expo 2020 provided an international stage for creativity and collaboration. Through its gates came artists and academics, dancers and diplomats, pop stars and pioneering thinkers, culinary wizards and cultural icons, tech maestros and tomorrow’s leaders.

Today, the legacy of Expo 2020 continues to evolve and flourish through Expo City Dubai, a dynamic cultural hub where global cultures converge and transformative experiences come to life. With its iconic architecture, immersive exhibitions, and a passion for sustainability, Expo City Dubai offers its visitors extraordinary journeys that foster dialogue and spark imagination.


At Expo City Dubai, our mission is to create a vibrant cultural hub that transcends boundaries, inspires creativity, and fosters meaningful connections. We are committed to showcasing the diversity of global cultures, nurturing a sense of wonder, and driving innovation. Through immersive experiences, collaborative partnerships, and sustainable practices, we strive to ignite curiosity, promote dialogue, and shape a brighter future for all.
