The United Arab Emirates will be hosting one of the most gigantic events of the world in Dubai, “Expo 2020” from October 20, 2020, to April 10, 2021. Over 190 nations and millions of visitors will connect at this enormous platform.
There is a famous proverb attributed to Benjamin Franklin, “Failing to plan is planning to fail”. This adage has a lot of weight on it. Before starting anything we have to plan smart otherwise it just sabotages the whole plan. Similar is the case with Expo 2020.
Most people believe that it’s an event where they can make last-minute arrangements which is a big mistake. Expo 2020 is larger than life events which will be running for nearly six months and it requires proper planning.
There are unlimited operational challenges for the companies who will be visiting during Expo 2020. The first and foremost challenge is choosing the right accommodation for your personnel. Though Dubai is big enough to accommodate millions of people, the point of concern is the nearest, economic and ideal choice of accommodation.
There will be unlimited corporate groups checking-in from various countries around the globe before and at the time of the event and their accommodation will be the prime challenge during that time. If you will have pre-corporate bookings, it will save you thousands of dollars as all the hotels and private accommodations will be overbooked; if available, the prices will be touching the sky.
Another big challenge is traveling time during the event. Expo 2020 will be attended by not just international visitors but by the locals also. Thousands of local people will be traveling during the event. However, there will be taxis and rent-a-car services. Apart from this, Expo 2020 will also have its own dedicated Dubai Metro Service which can hold a capacity of 40,000 passengers per hour to and from the site. If your accommodation will be near to the venue it will save you from the hassle of traffic.
Apart from the discussed challenges some other challenges include legal assistance, stationery & photocopy services, printing and designing of marketing materials like broachers, give-aways, back-drops, and corporate standees, multi-media, furniture, medical facilities, photography and video service, and many more.
