The Future of Expo

District 2020

District 2020 will be a global innovation ecosystem and mixed-use community. A sustainable, human-centric smart-city, it will re-purpose at least 80% of Expo 2020’s built infrastructure, including LEED Gold and Platinum-certified buildings.

A Lasting Legacy

The connections we will make, our hopes and aspirations, and the opportunities to experience innovation, ideas, cultures and traditions of over 190 participating countries will all translate into building a better tomorrow.
