The World Expo 2020 Dubai is an exhibition of all the new innovations being introduced, and it is also a chance to learn about all the cultural events and issues happening. The theme chosen for the World Expo in Dubai is “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”. This World Expo will open on October 2020 and is expected to attract thousands of people from all over the world. I will learn a lot about Dubai and its functions. I will hopefully also understand a lot about their culture and their history. I expect to learn how Tourism and Hospitality differs based on the culture and their traditions. I have heard many exciting things about the World Expo but I have never been to any. I plan to expand my understanding of how events such as the World Expo are planned and what is expected of them. I then plan to use this newly acquired knowledge of all the angles of Hospitality in my field of Hotel and Lodging.
The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world and was finished being constructed on December, 30 2009. The Burj Khalifa was built because Dubai wanted to be recognized and known for something other than their oil. To know that I will be standing in front of the worlds tallest building in just a few days is nerve-wracking. I am excited and curious to see the building in person and to learn more about the building’s history. I believe that visiting this attraction will help in Hospitality and Tourism because I will learn what type of people and how many of them this building attracts every year and how it has helped Dubai. I will be learning a lot about Dubai and its history through its architecture. I also plan on applying what I learn while visiting this attraction to help me develop as an industry professional.
