You were not there when humans conquered the fire when they wore animal skin clothing or invented the bicycle tire. You weren’t there when they created algebra, built the Giza Pyramids or painted the Mona Lisa. You were not there when they made the paper or built the amphitheater for the first time, or when they calculated gravity or made a reality fly

Expo 2020 Dubai, a long-awaited exhibition

Less than a year before the opening of Expo 2020 Dubai, whose official slogan is “Connecting Minds to Create the Future”, the organizers are multiplying campaigns to bring the Expo’s message of uniqueness and collaboration to the world at large. After the video campaign last June of footballer Lionel Messi, designated global ambassador for the 2020 World Expo, it is now time for rapper Will.i.am to deliver his message to attract the 25 million visitors so much awaited.

But you could be there and witness with your own eyes new acts of human genius… Be there to see the alliance of art, music, fashion and science. See a futuristic festival full of new and radical ideas, magical performances, in a six-month show. This you cannot afford to miss. It is the best of humanity and the greatest show of our time
