Dubai with the $7 billion Expo 2020 by HOK, will become the first Middle Eastern city to host the international exhibition in its 150-year history.
HOK Dubai’s Daniel Hajjar, said:
“This win is a testament to the commitment of the UAE citizens to create a prosperous future for their country and region. We are proud to have led the design of the Expo site and to be associated with producing a winning entry for Dubai so that this great country can continue to boost its reputation on a global stage.”
