Saudi Arabia will host the World Expo in 2030 in Riyadh

Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, has been granted the honor of hosting World Expo 2030. Embracing the theme “The Era of Change: Together for a Foresighted Tomorrow,” the Riyadh Expo is set to unfold from October 2030 to March 2031.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), in collaboration with Italy and South Korea, actively pursued the esteemed event, held on a quinquennial basis. Riyadh’s selection as the host city underscores the efforts spearheaded by Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and aligns seamlessly with the strategic roadmap outlined in Saudi Vision 2030, leveraging the nation’s inherent strengths.

This achievement comes on the heels of Saudi Arabia’s successful bid to host the FIFA World Cup in 2034. Originating from the Great Exhibition in London in 1851, the World Expo is a global spectacle addressing contemporary issues, with oversight by the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) in Paris. Member states cast votes to determine the host city.

Riyadh’s confirmation as the host for World Expo 2030 was sealed following the culmination of final bid presentations at the BIE general assembly in Paris. Looking ahead, the forthcoming World Expo, themed “Designing Future Society for Our Lives,” is slated for 2025 in Osaka, Japan, with Dubai having hosted the most recent edition in 2020.
