Expo 2020 has announced the launch of Thrive Together – a dedicated, business-focused programme offering a range of curated networking, knowledge-sharing and thought-leadership events, as well as tailored products and services that will enable visitors and participants to explore new business opportunities, form impactful partnerships and collaborate towards sustained economic prosperity in the UAE, the region and beyond.
Created specifically for the business community, both domestic and international, the Thrive Together programme will include a number of Thematic Business Forums, delivered in collaboration with Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
These events will highlight emerging business opportunities, cutting-edge technologies, and serve as a platform to connect, create and innovate. They will also accelerate private sector progress across current global challenges including climate change and biodiversity, space, and knowledge and learning.
Three Global Business Forums (GBFs), including the first edition of Global Business Forum ASEAN, will take place at the world-class Dubai Exhibition Centre (DEC), Expo 2020 Dubai. These GBFs will welcome prominent speakers, leading decision-makers and industry experts to explore business synergies and address obstacles to growth, driving trade and investment and fostering economic development.
Meanwhile, Country Business Briefings will enable each of Expo’s participants to leverage the presence of their heads of state or government, as well as their business leaders, to showcase their country-specific business and investment opportunities to a global audience.
Products and services offered as part of Thrive Together include an AI-powered app, facilitating meaningful B2B, B2G and G2G interactions across geographies and industries, suggesting potential matches for users based on their profiles, expertise, objectives and interaction patterns.
An easily accessible Business Calendar will be updated daily and carry the latest information on inbound business delegations, and all business events taking place across the Expo site, including in DEC, International Participants’ pavilions, and the Expo 2020 Business Connect Centre. Sitting at the heart of the Expo site, adjacent to the iconic Al Wasl Plaza, the Business Connect Centre will house chambers of commerce and trade entities from across the region, representing more than one million companies, as well as investment houses and venture capitalists.
