The number of registered visitors to Dubai's Expo 2020 has passed 10 million.

Expo 2020, which was, as the name suggests, originally scheduled for 2020 but had to be moved due to the pandemic, is the largest major global event to be held since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak.

In addition to physical visits, the Expo's digital platform had seen 37 million visits by 27 December 2021.

The Expo opened its gates on 1 of October 2021 – a year later than originally planned – and will run until 31 March 2022.

The first-ever expo to be held in an Arab country features nearly two hundred exhibitors in an exhibition ground covering more than 4sq km (1.5sq m).

Located between the city-states of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the master plan for the Expo Dubai 2020 was designed by US architects HOK – in partnership with Populous and Arup – and is organised around a central plaza, entitled Al Wasl.

It is enclosed by three large thematic districts, each dedicated to one of the sub-themes of Expo Dubai 2020 – Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.

In total, the event features 191 nations and each country participating – for the first time ever – has its own pavilion.

The country pavilions are accompanied by three other types of pavilions – partner, organisation and special pavilions.

The partner pavilions are occupied by commercial companies showcasing their innovations and products, while ​​international organisations are using their presence to show how they are working to address the global challenges of our time.

The special pavilions feature a mix of "education, entertainment and excitement", offering learnings and interactive experiences on topics such as sustainability and "opportunities".

Many of the pavilions have been designed by renowned architects and are destinations in their own right.
