Dubai Expo 2020
Tickets are on sale for Expo 2020 Dubai, the largest event ever to take place in the Arab World, and there is extra incentive to book now, with a chance to attend the much-anticipated Opening Ceremony on 30 September.
UAE residents ages 18 and above who purchase a Season Pass or Family Package before 14 August will be entered into a raffle for the opportunity to win a prized place at a night that will go down in history.
The breath-taking culmination of almost 10 years of planning and preparation for Expo 2020, the Opening Ceremony at Al Wasl Plaza – an architectural marvel featuring the world’s largest 360-degree projection surface – will star dazzling visuals and world-class acts.
Aside from the opportunity to attend this milestone event, a Season Pass will also unlock 182 days filled with thousands of events and amazing exploratory experiences.
With up to 60 live events a day – including film nights, poetry readings, art activations, music concerts, cultural tours, parades and interactive journeys for all ages – as well as more than 200 food and beverage options, the site will be alive with sounds, sights, rhythms and flavours from across the globe.
Expo’s stellar local and international entertainment line-up includes the likes of Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman’s pioneering women’s ensemble the Firdaus Orchestra, Bollywood sensation Sonam Kapoor, celebrated Emirati singer Ahlam, monthly music festival Expo Beats, and the famously evocative dance moves of the Russian Bolshoi. Many exciting additional names will be announced soon.
Tickets are on sale now at www.expo2020dubai.com and via more than 2,500 Authorised Ticket Resellers, with Mastercard debit and credit holders receiving a 25 per cent discount – and also doubling their chances of winning in the Opening Ceremony draw.
The carrier is a premier partner and the official airline of the show.
Emirates customers visiting Dubai, or travelling through the emirate, anytime during the event will be eligible to receive a free day pass.
Expo 2020 Dubai runs from the start of October until March next year.
With the UAE moving onto the amber list, travellers arriving in the UK from Dubai no longer need to quarantine in a government-approved hotel.
Emirates will soon launch various Expo-themed packages to allow customers to enjoy the excitement of the 182-day event and experience what its host city of Dubai has to offer.
The six-month event offers a bustling programme, packed with experiences to suit all ages and interests, including a rich line-up of themed weeks, entertainment and edutainment, while art and culture vultures, foodies and technology fanatics can expect to enjoy exhibits, workshops, performances, live shows and more.
Architecture aficionados will be surrounded by inspiring designs throughout Expo 2020.
Visitors can drop by their national pavilion for a taste of home, the 190 other country pavilions to experience other cultures and distinctive offerings, or various thematic and special pavilions to get a glimpse of the future.
