Expo 2020 Dubai has recorded 10,836,389 visits as of January 24, while the virtual visitation reached 72.5 million.
The visitors were attracted by the new musical from Indian stars Shekhar Kapur and A.R. Rahman, plus a series of high-profile events as part of the first Global Goals Week to be held outside of the United Nations in New York, according to an Expo 2020 press release on Tuesday.
Across the Expo 2020 Dubai site, which is four times the size of Dubai Mall and spans the area of 613 football pitches, visitors have safely enjoyed the nearly 200 events being staged every day, thanks to stringent precautionary measures against Covid-19.
Global Goals Week, which ran from 15th to 22nd January at Expo 2020 Dubai associated with the United Nations, proved similarly popular. The site came alive with post-it pledges and inspiring ‘to-do list’ activations, adding to the range of compelling forums and panel discussions.
The Theme Week advanced the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a blueprint to achieving a better, more sustainable future for all, tackling global challenges such as poverty, inequality, health and education, and climate change. Expo 2020 Dubai continues to be committed to promoting the SDGs, providing a platform to create a positive impact for our collective future.
