BIE Executive Committee proposes postponement
The Executive Committee of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) has unanimously agreed to propose the postponement of Expo 2020 Dubai to 1 October 2021 – 31 March 2022. It's important to know that changing the dates of an Expo requires the support of a two-thirds majority of eligible votes of Member States of the BIE, thus the General Assembly will now be called upon to vote.
Considering the practical impossibility of holding a General Assembly, Member States will be asked to cast their vote remotely by Friday 29 May. Should the motion receive a two-thirds majority of eligible and voting Member States, the
dates of Expo 2020 Dubai will be officially changed to 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
We will provide an update as soon as the decision has been made, but in the meantime, we wanted to show you we're still working hard on delivering our beautiful pavilion. It's starting to take shape and to be honest, it brings us a lot of hope in these challenging times. Stay safe, stay home.
