The long-awaited exhibition is just around the corner…

It’s been a very long time coming, but finally the much-anticipated Expo 2020 is less than one month away. What if we told you we know how to score free Expo 2020 tickets? A number of airlines and hotels are offering them out, and certain groups are entitled to free tickets too.

Running from October 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022, this spectacular event will see 192 countries from around the world exhibit their feats in every sector (from industrial to scientific to technological) in huge pavilions.

Known to some as ‘The World’s Greatest Show’, there will also be entertainment, live performances, and over 200 food and beverage outlets at the super-sized exhibition. With so many countries coming together to show themselves off, you can be sure it will be a spectacle quite unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
