ABOUT DISTRICT 202015
WHERE PEOPLE, SPACES AND IDEAS COME TOGETHER
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TAKE A GROUP OF DOERS, THINKERS, ARTISTS AND SCIENTISTS AND GATHER THEM IN ONE PLACE?
Then you give them access to the most advanced technology and dynamic structures possible.
You give them spaces where they can share ideas, learn from each other and unlock inspiration.
You build homes so they can take root and raise families.
You expose them to stimulating art, culture and education.
What happens when you take the best the world has and offer it to the people who want it most?
For six months from October 2020, Expo 2020 Dubai will be one of the most connected places in the world.
And District 2020 will continue to connect people, long into the future.
District 2020 will form the heart of a world-class integrated community, building on the legacy of Expo 2020 Dubai and supporting the acceleration of Dubais development. It will be a home for innovators, for original thinkers, for pioneers.

When cutting-edge technology is just the way you order dinner.
And people call your neighbourhood one of the most connected places in the world.
You can just let them know.
