The World Expo in Dubai kicked off yesterday with great fanfare and this year welcomed Swatch as the official timekeeper.

 

After a grand opening by the young crown prince of Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed yesterday, the World Expo opens its doors today, October 1, 2021. On the outskirts of Dubai and in the middle of the desert, the exhibition aims to welcome 25 million visitors from around the world over 6 months. It promises to unveil architectural wonders and technological innovations in its many pavilions.

 

Swatch, the official timekeeper of the exhibition, will be present in four boutiques located in the Welcome Plaza and in the Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability sectors.
