Less than 23 days remain for doors to open to the widely anticipated event, as periodic updates surface from the organisers.
The last update saw the completion of the multi-million-dirham landscaping project, while His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai reviewed the final preparations at the site earlier this month.
“Our teams are ready and pavilions are complete for the world’s largest event since the outset of the pandemic,” said H. H. Sheikh Mohammed.
