The most awaited Dubai Expo 2020 is gearing up and preparations for the grand event are well underway. A hunt for more than 30,000 volunteers has been launched who would be the ‘face’ of the largest global gathering in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia.
The volunteers will be coming from various nationalities and backgrounds and will be playing an important role in the Expo. The task will include welcoming about 25 million visitors over the six-month-long event. 70% of visitors are to come from outside the UAE which is the largest proportion ever in the history of the expo.
Volunteers can participate in the events leading up to the Expo 2020 and also attend the brainstorming sessions which could have their ideas be included in the plans. This time’s Expo’s main theme is, ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’
There are more than 45 roles available for volunteers which include welcoming guests to managing events with about 16 million hours of work spread across 173 days. People who decide to volunteer will gain hands-on experience and exposure to such a ground-breaking event.
Reem Ebrahim Al Hashemi, Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director-General of Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau commented on the event and the search for volunteers,
“Expo 2020 is a global event for everyone to learn, innovate, create, and have fun by sharing ideas and working together and we are proud to include opportunities for more than 30,000 volunteers from any age, nationality or background, reflecting the diversity of our Expo and our nation”
Najeeb Mohammad Al Ali, Executive Director, Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau also added,
“We will focus on attracting various groups of society, including university students, housewives, retirees, employees and people of determination. There will be opportunities for everyone, in line with Expo 2020’s theme”
