Christie has been named as the official displays and projection partner for Expo 2020 Dubai.

As Expo 2020’s newly appointed official displays and projection partner, Christie will showcase its laser projection technology, including using more than 250 of its D4K40-RGB projectors to create life-like evolving scenes on Al Wasl Plaza’s giant 130-metre-wide projection surface, which can also be seen from above.

Christie will supply and manage all display screens across the Expo site, with millions of visitors expected to attend.

Expo 2020 Dubai expects to attract 25 million visits between 20 October 2020 and 10 April 2021, with about 70 per cent of visitors projected to come from outside the UAE – the largest proportion of international visitors in the 168-year history of World Expos.

The first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region, and the largest event ever staged in the Arab world, will bring together more than 200 international participants, including countries, corporations, multinational organisations and educational institutions, to explore Expo’s theme of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’.
