Galadari Brothers has become one of the first private sector groups in the United Arab Emirates to offer six days off to its employees so that they can experience the wonders of Expo 2020 Dubai. Group staff can take this leave at any time throughout the duration of the Universal Exhibition from October 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022.
The group also cut employees’ working time by one hour throughout the six-month Expo. This will help them leave their workplace earlier and avoid rush hour traffic. The initiative will also help reduce the additional traffic the Expo is expected to bring on the roads.
The government in Dubai earlier announced six days of paid leave for its employees to visit the World Expo and explore the various global solutions and innovations on display.

So for all of you who want to visit and find out more about what the future will bring, I say the time is right. “
Mohammed Galadari, co-chair of Galadari Brothers, said the Expo is an event not to be missed. “We are excited and proud to offer our employees a chance to explore all that the mega event has to offer.
