A glimpse inside the Dubai Exhibition Centre

24 April 2019

Excerpt from Dubai Media Office:

A new 3D animated fly-through shows a world-class venue comprising 45,000 square meters of space spread across two campuses, housing a theater, auditorium, several multi-purpose halls, four suites and 24 meeting rooms, and customisable to all event needs, including large indoor concerts.

Co-located at the Expo 2020 site, the DEC forms a key part of Expo 2020's legacy, where it will continue to serve District 2020, the integrated urban development that will repurpose more than 80 per cent of Expo's built environment. A crucial driver of growth in the business services sector, the DEC's operation and expansion will attract both domestic and international visitors and encourage a sustainable, resilient and diversified economy in line with UAE Vision 2021, a set of national priorities to mark the country's Golden Jubilee.

Ahmed Al Khatib, Chief Delivery Officer, Expo 2020 Dubai, said, "By any standard, the Dubai Exhibition Centre will be a cutting-edge venue that will play a pivotal role during Expo 2020. But the impact of such a unique space will stretch well beyond the six months of the Expo, boosting the region's meetings and events industry, furthering the UAE's reputation as a destination for major conferences, and fuelling growth in Dubai's knowledge-based economy for many years to come."
