Excited to see the Expo spectacle next year? Take note of the ticket prices: A day pass for one adult will cost Dh120 and a three-day pass - which can be used on any three days throughout the event's 173-day run - will be priced at Dh260, organisers announced today.
It takes just one ticket for you to experience 'the future' through the technologies showcased at the Expo; marvel at cutting-edge architecture; try dishes from different countries; and celebrate with the world in daily parades.
Considering that there will be 60 live shows a day and performances from international artists - on top of the surprises from 192 country pavilions, organisers said one visit "will not be enough to see, hear and taste all that Expo 2020 has to offer".
Sanjive Khosla, deputy chief for sales and marketing at Expo 2020 Dubai, said: "With less than 550 days to go before the biggest event ever to be held in the Arab region, excitement is building up fast. We can't wait to welcome millions of visitors from around the globe, as we make every effort to ensure that our welcome is warm and reflective of the rich Arabic tradition of hospitality.
"We aim to be a World Expo that is accessible to all and we believe the ticket prices and concessions will help us achieve that ambition."
Children aged five and younger, as well as seniors aged 65 and older, may enter the site for free. Youth aged six to 17 and students of any age will get a 50 per cent discount, while people of determination will be granted complimentary access, with their carers entering for half the ticket price.
The Expo School Programme will also offer specially curated journeys for students of all ages, aiming to educate them on the Expo's sub-themes, namely Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.
Gillian Hamburger, senior vice-president for programming at Expo 2020 Dubai, said:
"Every day at Expo 2020, there will be live events, including parades, performances, global music shows, hands-on workshops and other diverse entertainment for all to enjoy. There will be sitewide celebrations on special days such as Diwali, UAE National Day, Christmas, New Year's Eve, Chinese New Year and International Women's Day."
Tickets will go on sale for the general public in April 2020, although visitors will be able to buy monthly and season passes directly from the Expo starting the last quarter of 2019. Details of these will be announced later.
For international travellers, on the other hand, single-day and three-day tickets will be offered in bundled packages to be sold by authorised ticket resellers, starting next month.
Expo 2020 Dubai expects to attract 25 million visitors to explore its theme of 'Connecting Minds, Creating the Future' in the six-month event starting October 2020.
More than 70 per cent of visitors are projected to come from outside the UAE - the largest proportion of international visitors in the 168-year history of World Expos.
