Dubai World Expo 2020's latest video in its bid to hold the World Exhibition in 2020.

MidEastPosts.com is a firm supporter of bringing the exposition to the region. We believe turning the world’s spotlight towards the Middle East is a way to challenge the many stereotypes that exist of its peoples, culture and ambitions.

We also believe that an event built around showcasing innovation, business, trade and globalisation is one where we can show what we are good at. Qatar’s World Cup win was an incredible achievement, but sport is not an area the GCC at least has yet to excel at. Business is – certainly in the melting pot of ideas, peoples and cultures of Dubai and the UAE.

There are other more local reasons why we hope the UAE wins. Dubai has always had ‘plans’, visions and dreams in spades. The Dubai World Expo 2020 will give them a much needed focus.

Finally, we think the region truly deserves it. It will be the first time the event is held on Middle East sand. This is a region that has gone through much pain. It would be good, for once, if the world turned its attention on the region for all the right reasons…
