With Expo 2020 Dubai finally set to open its doors to a post-vaccinated world from 1st October 2021 until 31st March 2022, many companies including Siemens, Atlas Capital Holding, Terminus Group to name a few, already plan to set-up their tech & R&D presence within District 2020, the legacy project of Expo 2020 Dubai.
Continuing with the Expo 2020 Dubai theme of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, more than 80% of the buildings and infrastructure, including digital infrastructure built for Expo 2020 Dubai will be inherited by District 2020. District 2020 is a mixed-used global innovation hub created to foster collaborations, where companies of all sizes operating across key growth industries of education, construction & smart cities, smart mobility & logistics, digital health and technology can innovate and develop their operations further.
As the vision for District 2020 reflects Expo 2020 Dubai’s themes of Mobility, Opportunity and Sustainability, the LEED Gold certified area is complete with a 45,900 sq m parkland, 10km of cycling tracks, 5km of jogging tracks, the Dubai Exhibition Centre and the Children & Science Centre.
