EXPO 2020... DUBAI !

Congratulations to the Team of Expo 2020 Dubai, UAE !

Following a vote wednesday in Paris by the Bureau International des Expositions, it is our great honour and pleasure to announce that the UAE has been selected as the host nation of the World Expo 2020 in Dubai under the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’.

First round :

Second round :

Third round :

As you can see, it's a final result. Result altogether predictable. It must be said that Expo 2020 Dubai has every chance of his side, sparing neither effort nor money to get this 'right to Expo' ! And it worked!
It's regrettable that Turkey was not found in the final against Dubai. Indeed, the city of Izmir presented his candidacy for the second time, friendly staff, honest and very dynamic, with the interesting theme of health for all. So it was Russia's bid against Dubai for the final round, a strong candidate despite a certain lack of trust and honesty. About Sao Paulo, it could have been an opportunity to see for the first time a World Expo in South America. Unfortunately, a low score that simply explains, a bid rather late, lack of energy, of communication, and locally, lack of support. We can say that it was maybe a little too early.
Anyway, go to 7 years in Dubai !
