The Expo 2020 site in Dubai will be converted into a smart city, where the latest in technologies can be tested, once the world fair ends in 2022.
The site will be renamed District 2020 and a once crowded event venue will be transformed into a permanent and futuristic residential, cultural, business, and technology powerhouse.
A blueprint to repurpose the sprawling 438-hectare site is being developed by senior Expo officials in partnership with Siemens, the Germany technology company.
