Or should I say, Dubai did it…I am so happy and incredibly excited that Dubai has won the bid to host the Expo 2020!!
The excitement in the city is palpable and as the announcement was made in Paris about 30 minutes ago, I could hear all the fireworks displays in the city..unfortunately I couldn’t see a thing, but apparently the city has gone crazy!! I feel so proud to be part of this amazing city which has such a positive vibe most of the time, but it will go into overdrive after this announcement!
I am sure once everyone has calmed down, the reality will be that we will all have to deal with an even more frenetic pace in the city (and much more traffic)but what a great achievement for our leader, HH Sheihk Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and his incredible team who put so much effort into our presentation for the bid. Without the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed, none of this would be possible and Dubai certainly would not be the place it is….I feel so lucky to be living in such an amazing place.
