Expo 2020 Dubai has teamed up with Cisco to ensure that the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia region leaves a lasting positive impact.
Cisco will provide its latest technology innovations that enable the exploration of new possibilities and connections for a sustainable, inclusive future.
Expo 2020 will take place between October 20 2020 and April 10 2021 and organisers expect nearly 25 million visits, 70% from outside the UAE.
Expo 2020 Dubai and Cisco will work closely to deliver a global event that is at the forefront of technological evolution and demonstrate how connectivity can be a force for social and economic good, in alignment with the event’s theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.’
As the next World Expo’s Digital Network Partner, Cisco will provide the secure, intelligent foundation for connectivity through its intent-based networking solution, making Expo 2020’s technology infrastructure the most advanced in the event’s 167 year history.
His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Expo 2020 Dubai Higher Committee, said: “Dubai is rapidly becoming one of the smartest and most connected cities in the world, exploring futuristic solutions that range from driverless vehicles to artificial intelligence solutions.
“At Expo 2020, we hope not only to share the expertise we have acquired across these areas, but also, through our partnership with Cisco, to connect minds around the world and capture the many opportunities made possible through collaboration.”
