Known as The World’s Greatest Show, the World expo is a sheer celebration of human brilliance and achievement. A gathering of nations from across the globe, the World Expo was first conducted in London in 1851. Today, it is being regulated by the Bureau of International des Expositions and provides a venue for countries to showcase their latest achievements and developments on the technological, scientific, cultural, social, and economic fronts. A great opportunity to connect with people from all parts of the world, it is also a place to experience the best of art, culture, geography, science, technology, innovation and invention. This will ignite new thought processes and ideas and finally impact and improve lives everywhere.
Expo 2020 is a once-in-a-lifetime celebration of ideas, culture, collaboration and innovation. The largest event ever staged in the Arab world, this is also the first World Expo to be held in this region. Truly an event of massive scale and proportions, everything about the event is in superlatives.

This created an entirely new social networking experience which caused teenagers to flock to this newbie platform.
Ecommerce has been one of the fastest growing businesses in the Middle East, and UAE has some of the most exciting online shopping figures in the region.
