Expo 2020 Dubai to host online seminar | News



Expo 2020 Dubai has partnered with travel experts, international participants and official partners for its pre-event programme featuring digital connectivity and the changing nature of travel and tourism as some of the key themes.

Covering key sectors such as mobility, transport and logistics, governance, education and travel, Expo Talks: Travel and Connectivity – a series of virtual panel discussions and talks held on February 16th – also examined artificial intelligence and data privacy.

The event provided a glimpse of how Expo 2020 will bring to life the theme of travel and connectivity when it opens in October, and featured keynote remarks from Reem Al Hashimy, United Arab Emirates minister of state for international cooperation and director general of Expo 2020 Dubai; Tim Clark, president of Emirates Airline; and Hatem Dowidar, chief executive of Etisalat Group.

Emirates hosted two ‘fireside chats,’ with the first focusing on the evolution of on-board connectivity and what this could look like in the future.

The second explored how the airline is creating and nurturing an ecosystem for innovation in travel and aviation in Dubai, and whether Covid-19 has influenced or expedited innovation in this space.
