Despite the unusually distant timeline, officials with Expo 2020 are already planning to have participation from the U.S.
This comes on the heels of a Dec. 2 announcement of Dubai being named the host city of World Expo 2020. Officials would like to gather U.S. participants in an effort to “connect minds and plan the future of the Middle East.”
The Expo will cover topics including logistics, energy consumption and developing new economic models.
Tom Kallman, president and CEO, Kallman Worldwide Inc., is spearheading a newly formed conglomerate named USA Alliance for Expo 2020. Kallman said he wants a cross-section of U.S.-based businesses, associations, educational and cultural institutions to become part of the joint effort.
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the people of the UAE and U.S. to deepen our ties and address our common future on such a grand, worldwide scale,” said Kallman.
Kallman added that Expo will be the ideal platform to share U.S. ideas and visions for connecting minds and planning for the future.
