Expo 2020 Dubai has welcomed 771,477 ticketed visitors through its gates since its October 1st opening.

At roughly 50,000 guests a day, the event is on track to welcome around nine million visitors over its six-month run time.

Almost half of all visitors hold a season pass, with more than 100,000 people visiting the site twice and more than 35,000 coming three times during the first 15 days, highlighting the number of attractions on offer at the largest event ever held in the Arab world.

To date, visitors to the World Expo – the first ever held in the Middle East – came from 181 nationalities, only 11 fewer countries than the 192 participating in the event, each with their own pavilion.

The figures include all ticket holders, but exclude representatives, delegations and guests of International Participants, partners and other stakeholders, as well as staff.

Expo 2020 Dubai runs until March, with more than 200 pavilions and countless other attractions for visitors to explore, plus up to 60 events daily, as well as panel discussions, cultural performances and much more.

Bringing Expo 2020 Dubai to a global digital audience, the number of virtual visitors has risen to 9.3 million since October 1st, up from 7.8 million last week.
