Blink and a new building is already standing tall!

Dubai Expo 2020 Site Progress

A new aerial footage released by the authorities shows that the Dubai Expo 2020 site is coming to life rather spectacularly.

It captures the progress of the development of Dubai Metro extension and multiple other buildings, and looks amazing.

Dubai was awarded the hosting position of Expo 2020 in 2013

In less than two years, scores of visitors from around will be in Dubai for the world's largest exposition in 2020, and if the rapid progress of the site is any indication, it looks like the 438-hectare area will be ready by October 2020.

The event will happen between October 20, 2020 and April 10, 2021 in the Dubai South district near the Al Maktoum International Airport.

“Our video showcases this month’s bird’s eye footage of the latest progress on site and how the theme districts are all emerging to deliver Expo 2020 to the world,” the team behind the project said.

The chosen theme for 2020, which changes with each Expo, is 'Connecting minds. Creating the future'.
