One such glimpse into the exhibition was given to us on March 10, when Expo 2020 Dubai tweeted out a video giving us a one minute preview into the spectacular show that will take place at the Al Wasl Dome.

The Al Wasl Dome is the world’s largest 360-degree projection screen that has used 13.6 kilometres of steel which is equal in length to 16 Burj Khalifas. It weighs 2,544 tonnes which is equivalent to 25 blue whales – the biggest animal on the planet and is as wide as two Airbus A380 measuring 130 metres wide.
