Jacobs Mace to manage Expo 2020 programme delivery

DUBAI, June 24, 2019

Construction consultancy Jacobs Mace said it has been named the official programme delivery management provider for Expo 2020 Dubai.

Since its appointment as project management consultant in January 2015, the syndicate has been part of the team responsible for managing the design and construction of the Expo 2020 Dubai site.

Commenting on the announcement, Ahmed Al Khatib, the chief development and delivery officer, Expo 2020 Dubai, said: "Jacobs Mace has proven to be a solid partner, playing an essential role in ensuring that construction is on track. Delivering an event of such enormous scale takes a collaborative effort and is only achievable by sharing knowledge and making continuous improvements side by side with our partners."

Expo 2020 is expected to attract 25 million visitors between October 20 next year and April 10, 2021, and of this, 70 per cent are projected to come from outside the UAE – the largest proportion of international visitors in the 168-year history of World Expos.

More than 200 participants, including countries, corporations, multinational organisations and educational institutions, will gather to explore Expo 2020’s theme of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’.-TradeArabia News Service
