UAE celebrates one year to Expo2020

The countdown to Dubai’s biggest ever event starts today, and popular spots across the UAE lining up special events to mark the milestone.

Global superstar Mariah Carey and acclaimed Emirati singer Hussain Al Jassmi will headline the Expo2020 concert at Burj Park in Downtown Dubai, that’ll be capped off with a fireworks display and LED show.

If you're heading down there, do bear in mind its a ticket only event, and that traffic will be heavy in the area.

Celebrations have been planned in every emirate today for the one-year-to-go countdown to the world's greatest show.
