International participants contributed significantly to the vibrancy, success and impact of Expo 2020 Dubai. A powerful demonstration of Expo’s message of unity and optimism, and illustrating an unwavering belief in the UAE’s ability to safely host a global event during a pandemic, the 218 participants, including 192 nations, sealed Expo 2020 Dubai as the most international World Expo in history.

Expo 2020 Dubai’s ‘One Nation, One Pavilion’ approach ensured each and every country took part on an equal footing and showcased their achievements and aspirations on an inclusive, global platform.

The One-Stop Shop supported participants around the clock, ensuring a seamless and efficient experience for all. This included the integration of government authorities, reinforcing Expo 2020 as a flagship national project and collective endeavour.

Representing global industry leaders and homegrown companies across key sectors – from travel and technology to energy and security – Expo’s commercial Partners brought a wealth of best-inclass products, services, technologies and solutions, supporting the delivery of an exceptional visitor experience and amplifying Expo’s impact and reach.

Delivering a world-class event required a world-class workforce and Expo 2020 formed a close-knit tribe that reflected the ambition, diversity and inclusive spirit of the UAE. From talented graduates to subject-matter experts and seasoned mega-event personnel, the diverse Expo tribe played a crucial role in the event’s success.

The largest of its kind in the history of the UAE, the Expo 2020 Volunteer Programme provided an unparalleled opportunity for people of all ages and nationalities to give back to the nation, while also enhancing both the participant journey and the visitor experience. The 30,000-strong force would become an important part of Expo’s social legacy.
