The Upcoming Communities in Dubai Focusing Expo 2020
Emirate obtained the right to host Expo 2020. The six month Expo is a huge and international event that gathers people with different backgrounds, beliefs, cultures to share ideas. Away from isolation, Expo gathers 25 million people from all over the world to solve and deal with the global matters like energy, water and transportation and achievements like the telegram, diesel engine, and color TV, as one nation.
Expo 2020 is expected to have a large impact on many sectors like tourism, trade, investment, economy and especially the real estate sector. Properties and real estates must be fully prepared to contain this event. Thus experts had planned and started out several mega projects to be ended before the start of Expo 2020. These megaprojects are as follows:
