Expo 2020 may be Postponed Until 2021

Expo 2020 may be Postponed Until 2021 - Coming Soon in UAE
29 March 2020

The representing UAE officials, BIE committee members, international stakeholders, and other Dubai Expo 2020 organizers will hold a virtual meeting to discuss the future of this significant event.

Expo 2020 is the most anticipated event of the year. However, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it may be delayed until 2021. The decision will be made by the organizers on Monday, March 30th during a virtual meeting. Three options will be considered – maintaining the current opening date, to delay for several months, and even next year carryover. Previously a similar problem was considered by the organizers of the Tokyo Olympics, and they decided to postpone the event for a year.

At the meeting, the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) steering committee from Paris will assess the current situation and adjusting planned preparations. A change of date requires a two-thirds majority vote from the committee’s members.

Event rescheduling may become a huge disappointment for UAE. Dubai already spent billions building attractions, hotels and facilities. All this was done in expectations for the arrival of many visitors from different countries. But in this situation all plans are subject to change.
