Dubai Expo 2021

World Expos are held every 5 years or so. The last few editions were Hanover (2000), Aichi (2005), Shanghai (2010) and Milan (2015). For 2020, the host city is Dubai, with the expo opening, after being held back by the pandemic, on Oct 1st, 2021. The next Expo is Osaka (2025). At the listing of country pavilions, the info shown is mostly pavilion related, here are a few with distinctive country related tag lines:
  • Afghanistan - Bazaars of cashmere, saffron and precious stones
  • Australia - World's first astronomers [the aborigines]
  • Estonia - The best of Nordic cuisine with an Estonian twist
  • India - India's past, present and future
  • Ireland - 5000 years of myth, legend and literature
  • Pakistan - A country of unparalleled nature and adventure
  • United States - Experience American freedom
The expo looks like it's a 100% in-person event, with no mentions of virtual tours or event broadcasts. The programme lists many satellite events but no further information is available. For a feel of the vibe, check out the expo's twitter account.
