Innovators unite at Expo Live summit


More than 100 Expo 2020-backed innovators from every corner of the world descended on Dubai this week, to exchange ideas around some of the planet’s most pressing challenges.

Hosted in Downtown Dubai, the three-day annual Expo Live Global Innovators Summit is a flagship event for Expo Live – Expo 2020’s global innovation and partnership programme that has allocated $100 million to support grass root innovations with guidance, exposure, and grants of up to $100,000.

"Despite being separated by thousands of miles, all of our Global Innovators are unified in their steadfast commitment to building a brighter future for generations to come," said Yousuf Caires, Senior Vice President of Expo Live, who opened the summit on Wednesday.

"Our annual Global Innovators Summit represents a unique opportunity for grantees to come together and network, share ideas and learn from each other’s experiences as they continue to bring each of their unique innovations to life.

"Expo Live is proud to support their solutions in making this a global reality – fueling optimism and proving to the world that life changing innovations can come from anywhere, to everyone."
