The figure includes all physical ticket holders but excludes representatives, delegations, guests, staff, and other stakeholders. Aside from that, the Virtual Expo, virtualexpo.world, has been a huge success. It debuted on September 30th, and over three million people watched the opening ceremony live on screens! In addition, between October 1 and 10, five million online visits were recorded.
There are a variety of expo ticket options available, but multi-day and season passes are the most popular. People have been impressed by the pavilions of various countries.
According to Joseph K Issa, Commissioner General of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, people are genuinely interested in the pavilions and want to know what they have to offer.
Next year, on March 31, 2022, Expo 2020 Dubai will come to an end.
