Masterplan for UAE’s 2020 World Expo bid

(WAM) / 5 August 2012

Two internationally leading consultancies have been appointed to support the development of the masterplan for Dubai Trade Centre-Jebel Ali, the UAE’s proposed site for the 2020 World Expo in Dubai.

Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) ... has been mandated to carry out a site analysis and legacy masterplan review. As part of this feasibility study, JLL will develop a long-term land use plan, providing a sustainable development strategy for both the Dubai Trade Centre-Jebel Ali site and surrounding areas.

Mace, a consultancy and construction company with a presence in 69 countries around the world, has also been engaged by the Expo 2020 team to assist with cost management and planning, working closely alongside the bid masterplan architects to develop the overall scope of this important project.

Dubai 2020 EXPO bid gains momentum

(Wam) / 11 August 2012



YEOSU, S.Korea – UAE’s participation in 2012 Yeosu Expo, which ends on Sunday in southern harbour city of Yeosu in South Korea, has added to UAE s credential as a Middle East s hub to pave the smooth way for Dubai s bid to host 2020 World Expo.

UAE also earned international endorsement as the role model for emerging economies by showcasing UAE s phenomenal development achieved in less than half a century under the wise and visionary leadership of the country which differentiated from other regional countries.

.........

Dr. Charles Mercieca, president of IAEWP, UN-NGO (ECOSOC) lauded National Media Council (NMC) of UAE and staff for their capabilities reaching out to audiences at 2012 Yeosu Expo with such a wonderful film as Turtle for the 2012 Expo’s main theme of “The Living Ocean and Coast” visualizing the most desirable future for the ocean”. “We did not hesitate to select “Turtle” as the best film at 2012 Yeosu Expo, he said in his message sent to the UAE Pavilion recently.

I guess the best choice would be either Dubai or Brazil because they could give more justice to it I guess. I'm not saying that others are not qualified but by that time I'm thinking that either the two can give more emphasis to it.

My vote goes to Dubai or Sao Paulo.

The cities of Thailand and Turkey nobody knows them and they are not attractive to tourism.

My favorites: Izmir and Sao Paulo, both cities can get a lot from the expo experience, cities with a lot of cultural values that are respected, not impossed. Both countries are in an importan development process.

Dubai doesn't need an expo to improve itself, they have enough money to develop the city and the country as if they have an expo each year. The video seems to say, we know we are the best, and forgets about how the world can get advantage from the expo in Dubai furhtermore than the show off all that they have achieved with money, a little bit selfish forgots the human side of the city.

Ekaterinburg: Seems like a large and cold russian city, withut personality and very generic, not very modern.

The Ayutthaya presentations are very old fashined it seems that they are bidding for an 80's or 90's expo.

Whichever city holds it, pointless to spend such an incredible amount of money on useless stuff like this. In the age of the Internet when you can access information from anywhere in the world, such exhibitions have lost their utility.

They are planning a super-tower of renewable energy

Each pavilion will reflect the sunshine to the top of the tower, converting all the solar energy in electric energy !!!
