EXPO 2020 AL WASL PLAZA

Al Wasl Plaza is the centre piece of the 4.38-square kilometer Dubai Expo 2020 site.

Al Wasl is the historical name for Dubai which means “connection” in Arabic, a key ambition for Dubai to bring people of all backgrounds together to “Connect Minds”.

The plaza will connect the three thematic districts – Opportunity, Sustainability and Mobility – as well as other main concourses, including the Dubai Metro link and the UAE Pavilion. The central garden is framed by three Grade A office buildings, two 4 star hotels and a 69m high 130m diameter steel trellis enclosed by a fabric to be used for a record breaking immersive environment.
