Tickets for Dubai Expo 2020 will go on sale next year

Expo organisers have signed up more than 1,000 authorised ticket resellers across the world

Tickets to attend Dubai Expo 2020 will go on sale next year, it has been confirmed.

Expo organisers have signed up more than 1,000 authorised ticket resellers (ATRs) across the world including online travel agents, tour operators, hotel groups and airlines, a statement said.

The global network is “crucial to Expo 2020 achieving its goal to welcome 70 per cent of visitors from outside the UAE and make the next World Expo the most international in its 168-year history”, the statement added.

Expo 2020 has activated reseller networks in target markets based on how prospective visitors in those countries book tickets at varying stages of their journey-planning process.

So far, the ATR network represents indicative commitments for more than two million tickets, organisers said.

A single-day adult (ages 18 and over) ticket will cost Dhs120 ($33), while a three-day pass, valid for a two-week period after first use, will be priced at Dhs260 ($71).

Expo 2020 will also offer concessions to students, children aged five and under, seniors aged 65 and over, as well as people of determination and their assistants.

Tickets will give holders access to the main pavilions as well as 60-plus live shows each day, daily parades, special celebrations and more than 200 food and beverage outlets.

Sanjive Khosla, chief commercial officer, Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “Expo 2020’s comprehensive ATR network surpasses any previous World Expo at this stage of event preparations.

“The global travel industry is the main conduit that will drive international visitation, and with our solid start we are on track to attract the most international audience ever to a World Expo.”

The six month event, the first Expo to be held in the MEASA region, aims to attract 25 million visits.
