Olivier Harnisch, Chief Executive Officer of Emaar Hospitality Group, said,“Emaar Hospitality Group has paved the way for creating an innovative hospitality landscape in Dubai, offering a range of experiences, from luxury to contemporary midscale. I am delighted that we have been awarded Expo 2020 Dubai’s Official Hotel and Hospitality Partnership. My team worked hard towards this achievement and I thank them for their commitment and dedication.

 

“In our role, we focus on providing an exceptional level of hospitality that will encourage visitors from across the world to return and experience everything that Dubai and the UAE have to offer. Expo 2020 will further strengthen Dubai’s position as one of the world’s most open and technologically advanced cities. We are delighted to be part of this journey.”

Expo 2020 Dubai expects to welcome 25 million visits during the six months of the event, from 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021. About 70 per cent of visitors are projected to come from outside the UAE – the highest international proportion in the 167-year history of World Expos.
