Al Wasl Plaza
Melbourne installed electricity to host the event, Seattle built the Space Needle, whilst Paris constructed the iconic Eiffel tower specifically for the event. Dubai has designed a crowning jewel – the Al Wasl Plaza, the world’s largest projection surface services as a connecting dome of the Expo. The translucent trellis mimics the Expos logo and will be the surface to project imagery to be seen from both inside and out. The 5 ‘petals’ that adjoin the trellis shaped plaza compromise offices and hotels, such as the Rove Hotel.

With bathrooms offering tired travellers and visitors an indulgent shower from the Embassy rain shower column alongside practical washroom space with under counter basin, wall hung pan and soft square brassware to deliver a contemporary design.
What is the World Expo 2020?
1851 saw ‘The Great Exhibition’ at Crystal palace London, showcasing the incredible inventions the Industrial Revolution brought us; the educational exhibition was praised and every few years what we now name a ‘World Expo’ is hosted in a different geographical location. The Dubai World Expo is the first to be held in the MEASA will be a 438-hectare area (1083 acres) located between the cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi and will run for almost 6 months from 01 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
The World Expo’s have been iconic exhibitions with unveilings that have proven to pave the future since the 19th Century. During each prolonged exhibition period of up to a year, past visitors discovered the first telephone, wireless technology and even the first Ferris wheel – The Ain Dubai, or Dubai Eye is under construction as the tallest observation wheel set to aptly open in line with the Expo 2020 – another Sanipex Group project reference.
