This presentation is the second of five opportunities the UAE will have to formally support its bid to the BIE in the lead up to the November 2013 selection of the host nation for the Expo.
Members of the delegation, Led by His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, in his capacity as Chairman of the Committee, includes: His Excellency Mohammed Ibrahim Al Shaibani, Director-General of His Highness the Dubai Ruler’s Court, who serves as Deputy Chairman of the Higher Committee for Hosting the World Expo 2020; Her Excellency Reem Al Hashimy, Minister of State and the Higher Committee’s Managing Director; Ahmed Abdullah Al Shaikh, Director General of the Government of Dubai Media Office; and Helal Saeed Al Marri, CEO of Dubai World Trade Centre.
The presentation to the BIE will take place just days ahead of the UAE’s special national celebrations at its pavilion at the 2012 International Expo in Yeosu, South Korea, a three-month event that is expected to attract up to 8 million visitors from across the world. Select members of the Higher Committee for Hosting the World Expo 2020 will travel to South Korea for those celebrations, which will be held on June 14.
The UAE’s bid to host the 2020 World Expo in Dubai is competing against biddings by four other candidate cities, including Ayutthaya (Thailand); Ekaterinburg (Russia); Izmir (Turkey); and Sao Paulo (Brazil).
