Dubai Expo 2020

Expo 2020 has been the most prestigious event to be held at Dubai, United Arab Emirates with a message of unity and growth. This would be a confluence of ideas, success stories and innovation while bringing together cultures, knowledge and creativity to the emirate. His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai's Executive Council, issued directives today allowing Dubai Government employees to take a special paid leave to attend Expo 2020 Dubai. The six-day leave can be taken between October 1, 2021, and March 31, 2022, during the Expo 2020 timeframe. The leave was offered so that employees could take their families to the expo and learn about the numerous global solutions and technologies on display. The Expo was originally scheduled for 20 October 2020 – 10 April 2021. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Arab Emirates, the new dates are 1 October 2021 – 31 March 2022.
