Expo City Dubai has unveiled three new attractions that pay tribute to the 200-plus nations and international organisations that helped make Expo 2020 Dubai such a huge success.
The three ‘Stories of Nations’ exhibitions are located in the Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability Districts and feature pavilion highlights from the event, while sharing new stories and inspiring new memories.
Visitors can discover how countries and international organisations contributed to the theme of each District and explore a treasure trove of memorabilia and artefacts including sculptures, musical instruments, textiles, clothing, digital assets and more.
Nadia Verjee, the Executive Director of the Expo Dubai Group told Dubai Eye 103.8’s The Agenda that the exhibitions are highly interactive and also cater to children.
In the Opportunity District, the exhibition theme is Our Moment in Time and showcases humanity’s collective determination, its changing perspectives, our empathy for one another and how we all came together at a moment of tremendous possibility.
Our Endless Imagination in the Mobility District captures humankind’s relentless pursuit of excellence, highlighting how ingenuity and ambition transform the way we live, connect with each other and exchange knowledge and ideas.
In the Sustainability District, Our Wonderful World takes visitors on a curated tour of country highlights that celebrate humankind’s relationship with nature.
