Dedicated business track to offer extensive opportunities for networking, knowledge sharing and growth.
Expo 2020 has announced the launch of Thrive Together – a business-focused programme offering a range of curated events and tailored products and services for business of all sizes, from home-grown UAE-based businesses looking to expand, budding entrepreneurs eager to share ideas and build their network, or overseas companies entering the region for the first time.
The wide-ranging business events calendar will feature a number of Thematic Business Forums, delivered in collaboration with Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, as well as three Global Business Forums, including the first edition of the Global Business Forum ASEAN. These events will highlight emerging business opportunities, cutting-edge technologies, and serve as a platform to connect, create and innovate. They will also accelerate private sector progress across current global challenges including climate change and biodiversity, space, and knowledge and learning.
Products and services offered as part of Thrive Together include an AI-powered app, facilitating meaningful B2B, B2G and G2G connections across geographies and industries, suggesting potential matches for users based on their profiles, expertise, objectives and interaction patterns; a dynamic and ever-evolving Business Calendar, carrying the latest information on inbound business delegations, as well as all business events taking place across the Expo site; and access to the Business Connect Centre, which will house chambers of commerce and trade entities from across the region, as well as investment houses and venture capitalists.
In addition to the Expo 2020 tickets launched last month, an enhanced ticket package has been created with business-focused visitors in mind. Launching shortly and priced at AED 1,750, the Premium Experience Season Pass includes complimentary access to the Expo B2B App, a dedicated concierge, entry to the exclusive premium lounge, guided tours, F&B discounts and priority access to a number of events and experiences as well as unlimited fast track entry to the Expo across the entire six months of the event.
Thrive Together builds on the UAE’s reputation for facilitating business and trade, with world-class infrastructure, business-friendly regulatory frameworks and a vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem. It also leverages the connecting power of Expo 2020 Dubai, which across 182 days will bring together 191 nations, as well as multilateral organisations, academic institutions and millions of visitors to inspire meaningful change and create a brighter future for all.
