Just 300m from the heart of Expo 2020 Dubai site, renowned as the ‘World’s Greatest Show’, the Dubai Exhibition will be home to The Retail Summit in March 2022.

The Centre will continue to serve District 2020, the integrated urban development that will repurpose more than 80 per cent of the built environment from Expo 2020 when it closes at the end of March 2022.

A driver of growth in the business services sector, the Dubai Exhibition Centre’ operation and expansion will attract both domestic and international visitors and encourage a sustainable, resilient and diversified economy.

We want to make sure that your visit is both enjoyable and safe. To ensure this, health and safety measures will be fully implemented across the Expo 2020 Dubai site. Find out more about the health and safety measures of the Summit and the Dubai Exhibition Centre.
