Simply Sunday. If you plan ahead as far as the year 2020, expect Dubai to be over-run with millions if not billions of visitors. Yes, Dubai won the bid to host World Expo that year.
The photo shows the CEO of Jumeirah, Gerald Lawless, listening, in Dubai, to live radio of the final voting in Paris, on Wednesday November 27th, 2013. It was actually quite obvious that Dubai was going to win. Helped by the Emirate’s official PR company, Falcon and Associates, Dubai obviously wooed the 167 international ambassadors to France who were flown to Dubai for ‘site inspection’.
But the return will be obvious. It is said $8.4 billion will be spent in establishing the World Expo venue, with lots of additional luxury hotels along the way, but the event will bring in about $23 billion. Not bad… good luck Dubai!
