The initiative connected Expo 2020 with people across the seven emirates, reflecting the spirit of hospitality and generosity that the UAE will showcase when it says ‘hayyakum’ (Arabic for ‘welcome’) to the world in 2020.
More than 100 tours took place, welcoming visitors from 79 nationalities. Tours were also organised for special groups such as senior citizens, school classes, Boy Scouts and Girl Guides. In total, more than 14,500 seats were requested.
Manal Al Bayat, Chief Community Engagement Officer, Expo 2020 Dubai, said:
“We were delighted with the success of the sneak preview bus tours, which have highlighted just how excited the nation is to say ‘hayyakum’ to the world at Expo 2020.”
Expo 2020 Dubai is set to welcome 192 participating countries and millions of visitors for the largest event ever staged in the Arab world, taking place in Dubai South from 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021.
