The UAE has demonstrated tech-savvy methods to overcome the pandemic via detection of infections followed by consistent monitoring, alongside successful implementation of social distancing. This has also made the Emirates a safe space as most countries tackle new waves of the covid crisis, enabling it to host tech events as well as art and defence exhibitions in the new normal.
With one of the largest gatherings of innovators in the post-lockdown era, smart city Dubai is now set to host millions who’ll visit Expo 2020 in person or virtually. In addition to security measures as well as arrangments for transportation, authorities have now launched a customised app, which will take personal preferences of visitors in account to generate an itinerary for them.
The platform designed for the site which is said to be the size of an entire European city-state, will come with a map equipped with GPS tech for guiding visitors. The navigation system will point out attractions which are most in sync with an individual’s interests, so that people are able to make the most of their time at the tech event.
Users can also select where they want to dine, as the app will feature suggestions as per their culinary preferences, in order to help them sift through over 200 options. At the same time the platform will automatically manage reservations for the user through the Smart Queue system deployed at Expo 2020.
This intelligent solution books the most convenient slots for visits to preferred attractions, so that a visitor doesn’t have to wait in line. Users can also link their social media accounts with the app, to help it access their personal interests, and provide info about parking as well as public transport options.
Apart from tech geeks, an Expo Business app matches entrepreneurs with locations, which are most likely to boost their prospects, by scanning their objectives. For a small fees, the platform even enables chatting and networking to help businesses grow via new connections.
