The main site of Expo 2020 Dubai is a 438-hectare area (1083 acres) located between the cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, near Dubai’s southern border with Abu Dhabi.
The master plan was designed by the American firm HOK and is organized around a central plaza (entitled Al Wasl), enclosed by three large thematic districts: Sustainability District, Mobility District, and Opportunity District. The names of districts are dedicated to the sub-themes of Expo 2020, each of them has its own pavilion.
The infrastructure of the 4.38 km2 Expo 2020 site was built by Orascom and BESIX. The site has an emergency center which includes an isolation room, emergency care room, ambulances, and helicopter services.
Expo City will be a clean, green, tech-enabled city of the future driven by sustainability, innovation, education and entertainment. It will be reachable by Dubai Metro via Expo 2020 station. Plans are in place for buggies, scooters and bicycles to be the primary modes of transport used within the Expo City, with Cars not being allowed to enter.
Some major pavilions are planned to stay and remain open, like Alif, the site’s mobility pavilion and Terra, its sustainability pavilion. They are planned to live on as “interactive educational experiences”. Other existing destinations that planned to stay include the falcon-inspired UAE pavilion, Saudi Arabia’s award-winning pavilion, the woman’s pavilion, and the vision pavilion.
As announced, Expo City Dubai will not have an entrance fee, but individual attractions will have their own ticketing system.
