What is Expo 2020 Dubai?
The Expo 2020 Dubai is the first to be hosted by a country in the MENA region. The World Expo has run since 1851 when the first event was held in London called the Great Exhibition. It is a grand gathering of nations dedicated to creating solutions to the pressing matters of the world. It is expected that 25 million visitors will visit Dubai during Expo 2020’s six-month run!
How long is the Expo 2020 Dubai?
Don’t let 2020 fool you. Expo 2020 is kicking off right now and extends well into 2022. Opening night was October 1, 2021, with the show running through to March 31, 2022.
Have you ever wondered, though, why the event is called Expo 2020, despite the fact that it is 2021?
The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the world as we know it. Borders were shut, flights grounded; and schools and offices closed. Events, including global ones like the Expo 2020,
had to be postponed. Originally scheduled for 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021, it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The organizers choose to keep the name Expo 2020 for marketing and branding purposes.
What’s happening at Expo 2020 Dubai?
190 countries will share their culture and innovation! Participating countries have been allowed to set up a shop at their very own pavilion to showcase how their nation is contributing to critical global debates on international issues. The Expo 2020 has three core themes: Sustainability, Mobility, and Opportunity.

South Korea’s pavilion”Squid Game”
South Korea’s pavilion at Dubai’s Expo 2020 is hosting the traditional children’s games popularized by the Netflix most viewed series “Squid Game” – but without the deadly consequences. Participants each day get the chance to play “Dalgona,” a game where they try to cut out different shapes from a hard candy. Winners – and even the losers – get a South Korean snack as a reward. Participants also play “Ddakji,” in which they try to flip an envelope-shaped paper. But they as well don’t get slapped if they lose like the series. “Squid Game” is a brutal Netflix survival drama about desperate adults competing in deadly children’s games for a chance to escape severe debt. The show has captivated global audiences since its September becoming Netflix’s most-viewed series.
