Expo 2020 Dubai to award Dhs 11 billion worth of contracts
Updated on 31 January 2017

Expo 2020 Dubai will award 47 construction contracts worth Dhs 11 billion (3 billion USD) in 2017 as preparations for the first World Expo in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia continue to gather pace.

A further 98 non-construction contracts totalling more than Dhs 360 million (98 million USD) will also be distributed before the end of the year. These will range from legal advisory services to event management and merchandising.

The construction contracts for 2017, which are open to local, regional and international businesses, include the third and final infrastructure package for the event’s support areas, including car parking.

Other key awards for the year ahead include the construction of the three Thematic Districts that will host the majority of the pavilions, as well as the public areas and the design, development and delivery of all temporary architecture and infrastructure required to stage the event.

The announcement shows that the Expo is on track to complete the majority of construction a full year ahead of the event opening in October 2020 and is delivering on its commitment to bring major opportunities to both local and global companies.

The procurement process, from initial registration on the portal to tender participation, has been based on the three key principles of transparency, simplicity and inclusivity.
