The sustainability and mobility pavilions as well as Garden in the Sky are to open next month, ahead of the official October launch
Expo City Dubai will welcome visitors to two of its pavilions from September 1, ahead of its full launch in October.
The re-opening of its mobility pavilion – Alif and the sustainability pavilion – Terra – will mark the “first chapter of Expo City Dubai’s journey,” a statement said.
Garden in the Sky, with its breathtaking 360-degree views, will also open on September 1, with tickets priced at Dhs30 for adults, and free of charge for People of Determination and children aged five and under. Other attractions are free for children aged 12 and under and People of Determination.
Tickets, which cost Dhs50 per person per pavilion, are available at the Expo website and can be purchased at four box offices at Expo City Dubai from September 1. Other attractions, such as the Al Wasl Plaza, the Surreal water feature, the Women’s pavilion and the Vision pavilion, as well as children’s playgrounds and the carousel – will open in October.
Later this year, the opportunity pavilion will become the Expo 2020 Dubai Museum, the statement added. Expo City Dubai is also looking forward to the return of UAE students, with the Expo School Programme preparing immersive educational experiences, exhibits and interactive workshops, the statement added. The exhibition site, which has already hosted the six-month-long expo event, will transform into a smart destination for businesses, driven by sustainability, innovation, education and entertainment.
The site will also host the 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP28).
Last month, Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum was appointed chairman of Expo City Dubai Authority, while Reem Al Hashimy was anointed CEO.
