The official Expo 2020 app allows users to tailor their visit to the fair, matching individual interests to create a personal schedule of events and attractions, across a site twice the size of Monaco.
Visitors can use the app to buy tickets, choose from more than 200 dining options and themed culinary events, and manage reservations for Expo 2020’s intelligent Smart Queue system — offering guests the ability to reserve a convenient time slot to visit a pavilion of their choice and avoid queues.
Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the Official Digital Services Partner of Expo 2020, the app - available to download via the App Store or Google Play - allows visitors to create an Expo 2020 account or link their social media account, as well as access a GPS-enabled interactive map of the Expo site and step-by-step directions to points of interest across Expo.
A chabot on the app will provide information on making visits to Expo 2020 safe and enjoyable, including details on opening times, parking options and how to reach Expo using Dubai’s extensive public transport options.
Mohammed Alhashmi, Chief Technology Officer of Expo 2020 Dubai, said, "Hosting the world in one place for six months, Expo 2020 offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore new frontiers and join in a celebration of creativity, innovation, human progress and culture."

The mobile app is a window for visitors worldwide to learn about Expo 2020 and plan their visits via curated journeys to ensure an accessible and relevant experience for all."
Separately, the Expo 2020 Business App matches users with similar interests and objectives among the business community, to facilitate meaningful business to business (B2B), business to government (B2G) and government to government (G2G) interactions across geographies and industries.
Powered by artificial intelligence and available for mobile and desktop, it suggests potential matches for users based on their profiles, expertise, goals and interaction patterns - ensuring every business visitor can meet their business objectives.
Available via WebApp, App Store and Google Play, the Expo 2020 Business App allows users to create their profile, highlighting key information and contact details, while selecting filters and researching potential match partners. Once a connection is made, users can start engaging, chatting and scheduling meetings with other users, businesses and entities of interest to establish relationships during and beyond Expo, which closes its doors on 31st March 2022.
While free to download, a small registration fee applies to access the app’s premium features, such as networking, connecting, chatting and scheduling meetings.
