The Expo 2020 site will become “the future home of Dubai’s conferences and exhibitions” once the event concludes in 2021.
Marjan Faraidooni, the organising body’s vice president of legacy, said that more than 80 per cent of the 4.3-square-kilometre site in the Dubai South district will be reused for conferencing and exhibitions, as well as providing collaborative working spaces, an educational institute and a “science exploratorium”.
The conference and exhibition centre, a key building in the Expo master plan, will become a major event venue, to be operated by Dubai World Trade Centre.
