Expo 2020 Dubai Records 5.66 Million Visits

Expo 2020 Dubai has seen a staggering 5,663,960 visits up to 5th December, since it first opened on 1st October, with recent figures buoyed by the UAE’s Golden Jubilee festivities and a raft of spectacular sport, music and cultural performances.

During his visit last week, French President Emmanuel Macron, congratulated Expo 2020 Dubai for "organising this exhibition and making it a success".

Proving that one day isn’t enough to experience everything Expo 2020 Dubai has to offer, six out of 10 visitors (57 percent) now hold an Expo Season Pass, with the number of repeat visitors in the first two months reaching 1.2 million.

More than a quarter (28 %) of November visitors came from outside the UAE, with the top international visitor countries including India, France, Germany, Saudi Arabia, and the UK.

Numbers are expected to rise further with Christmas festivities and more world-class performances, such as Grammy Award-winner Alicia Keys’ show at Al Wasl Plaza on 10th December, Academy Award-winning composer and musician A.R. Rahman on 22nd December and Broadway superstar Lea Salonga on 25th December.

Expo 2020’s virtual visitation rose to an incredible 25 million, driven by the uptake of Live@Expo, which enables visitors to take a bespoke live virtual tour through the site. Virtualexpodubai.com was also honoured by the UK’s Favourite Website Awards (FWA) with the 'Most Favourite Website Award' for November 2021.
