Expo 2020 will now welcome the world from 1st October 2021 to 31st March 2022. The UAE requested to postpone the current Expo 2020 Dubai schedule due to the current challenging times.
The new dates were announced following a two-thirds majority of voting of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) Member States where they voted in favour of postponing the next World Expo by one year.

They supported the request to postpone Expo 2020 and the proposed dates, which are 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
