Epic Nationwide Celebrations And Dazzling Burj Khalifa Show Mark One Year To Go Until Expo 2020 Welcomes The World

– Mariah Carey and Emirati singer Hussain Al Jassmi perform live in Dubai extravaganza

The UAE marks the milestone moment at fun, free events across all seven emirates

Everyone is invited to play their part in exciting journey to the World’s Greatest Show

DUBAI, 20 October 2019 – The UAE came together this evening to celebrate One Year to Go until Expo 2020 Dubai opens its doors, with spectacular events in all seven emirates marking the milestone moment in style and offering a tantalising taste of what’s to come at the World’s Greatest Show.

Global superstar Mariah Carey and acclaimed Emirati singer and Expo 2020 Ambassador Hussain Al Jassmi headlined celebrations in Burj Park, Downtown Dubai – treating the audience to hour-long sets packed with their greatest hits.

All eyes turned to Burj Khalifa at 2020 (8.20pm) for a mesmerising LED and fireworks show that launched the 12-month countdown to 20 October 2020, when the largest event ever staged in the Arab world will open its doors for an unmissable 173 days of inspiration, innovation and fun for all the family.

Top-class events were held simultaneously from 1700 to 2200 in the six other emirates, at Louvre Abu Dhabi, Al Majaz Waterfront in Sharjah, Ajman Museum, Umm Al Quwain Corniche, Al Qawasim Corniche in Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah Fort.

All seven free, family-friendly celebrations underlined the nation’s ever-growing excitement and pride as it prepares to host the first World Expo in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region. Each drew a bustling crowd and featured musicians, painters, poets and other figures from the UAE’s flourishing cultural scene, as well as great food, craft areas for children, live streams of Dubai’s headline acts and plenty more.

Najeeb Mohammed Al-Ali, Executive Director Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau, said: “This was a wonderful ‘Be There’ moment for the nation after we launched our newest campaign – ‘Be There for the World’s Greatest Show’ – only last week. Tonight gave the entire UAE and the wider world a tantalising glimpse of what Expo 2020 Dubai will offer in just 12 months from now – and proved exactly why everybody will want to be there for an unmissable landmark in our history.”

An appearance from Bollywood actress and singer Shraddha Kapoor added further star quality to proceedings at Burj Park, while five UAE-based musicians of diverse genres performed a song they had written especially for the One Year to Go celebrations. Their collaboration will feature in a documentary titled ‘Musical Encounters’ to be released shortly.

Across all seven emirates, performances by 100 artists from 26 different nationalities highlighted the nation’s rich talent pool and multicultural modern society, as well as the global appeal of Expo 2020.

More than 100,000 plastic bottles were saved during the national celebrations as part of the ‘Be Water Wise’ initiative – a collaboration between Expo 2020 and the UAE Water Aid Foundation, Suqia UAE, to raise awareness about water scarcity and single-use plastic. In line with Expo’s subtheme of Sustainability, free drinking water and 98 per cent biodegradable and compostable paper water bottles were provided to all visitors, performers and staff.

Expo 2020 Dubai will bring together 192 participating nations and an anticipated 25 million visits, showcasing the best in technology, architecture, gastronomy, culture and more while also exploring how humanity can shape a more sustainable tomorrow through the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’.

Everyone is encouraged to join the journey to Expo 2020 through a variety of options from Expo Live’s pioneering social projects helping communities around the globe, to the volunteers programme, which will see a diverse mix of 30,000 UAE residents and expats become the ‘face’ of the next World Expo.

More details are being announced about The World’s Greatest Show of human brilliance and achievement on a continuous basis. Stay in the know by visiting expo2020dubai.com or follow any of Expo’s social media channels.

About World Expos

In 1851 the Crystal Palace was the centrepiece of London’s Great Exhibition – the first World Expo. It celebrated the man-made industrial wonders of a rapidly changing world. Architecture, contents and a theme, ‘Industry of All Nations’, were combined to create a big idea of nations meeting nations in shared technological and commercial progress. In more recent years, participants in World Expos, including governments, international organisations and companies, have gathered to find solutions to universal challenges and to promote their achievements, products, ideas, innovations, their national brand, and their nations as destinations for tourism, trade and investment.

World Expos are held under the auspices of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), the intergovernmental organisation responsible for overseeing and regulating international exhibitions (‘Expos’) and for fostering their core values of Education, Innovation and Cooperation. Today, four types of Expos are organised under the BIE’s auspices: World Expos, Specialised Expos, Horticultural Expos and the Triennale di Milano.

SKINCLUSION Ambassador Priyanka Chopra Jonas Talks Diversity, Inclusion and Unconscious Bias

SKINCLUSIONTM is a Global Awareness Initiative from Obagi® Celebrating Diversity and Inclusion

Focuses on Need for People to Recognize and Address Their Own Unconscious Bias – Specifically Surrounding Skin Tone

Everyone possesses unconscious or implicit bias, but the majority of us are not aware of its impact on our thoughts and actions. Unconscious bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions and decisions in an unconscious manner.

SKINCLUSIONTM, a new campaign from Obagi®, is looking to create a global dialogue about the need for people around the world to recognize and address their own unconscious bias, specifically surrounding skin tone. While unintentional, unconscious bias reflects deeply engrained stereotypes and can create “blind spots” that prevent us from seeing the beautiful humanity we all share.

SKINCLUSIONTM Ambassador, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, discusses:

– Why this campaign is personal to her

– The importance of fighting for inclusion and celebrating diversity

– How she supports brands that align with her own values

– The SKINCLUSIONTM  campaign and how your audience can get involved

Obagi® is a female-led global skin care brand with a 30-year history of providing scientifically proven skin care products and a commitment to diversity and inclusion in all aspects of its business – including clinical research. Priyanka has been dedicated to fighting for inclusion and diversity over the course of her 20-year career and believes in supporting brands that align with her values.

Story Description

SKINCLUSIONTM is an initiative celebrating diversity and inclusion, which is very dear to my heart. It was developed by Obagi®, a skin care brand with more than 30 years’ experience researching products on all six skin types, including mine. I love the way their Pro-C products make my skin look and I’m excited to partner with a brand that aligns with my values.

SKINCLUSIONTM seeks to create a global dialogue about the need for all of us to make conscious choices to see the beauty in all of our differences. It helps us address our own unconscious bias which can create blind spots that can hurt and divide us.

Visit Skinclusion.com to join me in this conversation and to learn more.

Obagi’s SKINCLUSIONTM is a global awareness initiative that celebrates diversity and inclusion, and encourages us all to recognize and address our own unconscious bias, specifically surrounding skin tone. Unconscious bias affects nearly everyone, but the majority of us are not aware of its impact on our thoughts and actions.

Recognizing our own bias allows us to challenge it, overcome it, and ultimately, create a world where diversity is celebrated. Obagi is a conscious, global skin care company with a 30-year legacy and a commitment to diversity and inclusion in all aspects of their business – from their culture to product development. As part of this initiative, Obagi® will be supporting the important work being done by the International Diversity Cultural Organization and Project Implicit.
