US-based CH2M HILL and UK-based Mace have been confirmed for the Dubai Trade Centre Jebel Ali development – the master district that will host the expo.

The Dubai Expo 2020 exhibition site will be able to accommodate up to 300,000 visitors, with average week-day attendance expected to be more than 150,000.

In a statement the companies said the site would be the prototype smart destination for ‘purposeful innovation’, retaining a core focus on youth and culture, establishing Dubai as a global city of the future.

It also “aims to continue to inspire the region’s youth through the delivery of an inclusive environment that fosters cultural learning, collaborative co-creation and business in a complete destination proposition”.

“Dubai Trade Centre Jebel Ali development will become a new focal point of global business tourism for the region, reinforcing the UAE’s established position as an international destination fostering thought leadership across key sectors for economic development and a business networking hub through trade fairs, mega-events and conferences,” the statement continued.

CH2M HILL-Mace were involved in the delivery of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and is playing a strategic consulting role on Rio 2016.
