Expo 2020 Dubai has released the latest visitor counts, with 3,578,653 individual visits registered by the half-way point of November – only six weeks into the six-month run of Expo 2020 Dubai.
The announcement comes after a jam-packed weekend of incredible music, sports, and cultural acts. Highlight and Punch, as well as Fela and the Kalakuta Queens, went to the stage on Friday night for the KITE concert, which was devoted to the life of Nigerian musical artist and political activist Fela Kuti.
Also, Nancy Ajram and Ragheb Alama, two Arab mega-stars, performed in front of a packed Al Wasl dome.
Expo 2020 Dubai is more than a term in the UAE, since Dubai's candidacy was selected by the World Expo appointment panel in Paris in 2013.
Over 190 countries will gather in Dubai for a global exchange of culture and innovation.
Participants have been given the option to set up shop in their own pavilion to demonstrate how their country contributes to important global debates on highly debated themes.
Expo 2020 focuses on three main themes: sustainability, mobility, and opportunity, which are addressed in different ways throughout three distinct areas.
Visitors are asked challenging 'Would you rathers?' in several halls about their personal resource use vs. the impact on the natural environment, such as: Would you give up your phone to save a rainforest you'd never see?
Data is gathered and shared with visitors through a scoreboard, allowing them to come to their own judgments about the morality of the situation and helping organizers to better understand audience opinions in their quest of education on crucial subjects.
Hydroponic gardens and dioramas demonstrating sustainable living options may be found in A Laboratory of Future Values.
Outside, in an open-air stadium with a stage and food and drink sellers, traditional music and acts mingle with more contemporary soundscapes.
The Mobility District and its pavilion are in charge of encouraging visitors to form stronger bonds with one another and to explore new frontiers at the cutting edge of human progress.
Installations and exhibits aim to help build the foundations of a peaceful, global society in which information, ideas, and things are shared more quickly than ever before.
Expo 2020 Dubai is open to the public until March 31, 2022 and invites the entire world to participate in a celebration of togetherness, opportunity, innovation, and sustainability that will help to define a better, brighter future for all.
