ATM Global Stage


The opening session will look at the role Expo 2020 Dubai plays in delivering the UAE government’s long-term vision for economic diversification. High-level government and private-sector stakeholders will discuss how the mega event will leave an enduring legacy for the country and contribute to its goal of becoming a knowledge economy and a leading global city and tourism destination. The core theme of sustainability will also be discussed. The panel will outline true impact of Expo on the UAE and the wider GCC’s travel, tourism and aviation industries. They will also consider the big picture infrastructure and investments planned for the next 10 to 15 years, from airports to cities-within-cities, that are all part of the UAE’s ambitious masterplan for growth and development.
