Expo 2020: Dubai is the first world event since the CoVID pandemic. With 192 countries participating, it has been heralded for strengthening international confidence after a tumultuous period.
What Was Said About The Market?
In August 2021, Arabian Business reported that business conditions in the UAE were at a 2 year high. Although exports were down, optimism remained for a strengthening of economic conditions on the back of Expo 2020: Dubai.
2021’s third quarter saw a rise in Dubai’s Consumer Confidence Index, with a marked increase in those surveyed feeling positive about their personal finances and future. Whilst in a survey conducted by the Dubai Chamber, respondents demonstrated increased business confidence for the fourth quarter of 2021.
Much of this confidence can be attributed to the positive effect of the Expo, with business leaders optimistic that it will strengthen economic conditions.
In fact, Hamad Buamim, President and CEO of Dubai Chamber, was reported as saying that hospitality and logistics are among those industries that will see the most activity during the Expo.
What Is The Impact of Expo 2020: Dubai So Far?
As more and more flock to this well-planned and sophisticated event, exhibitors have had to ensure that they can accommodate their visitors, whilst the rest of Dubai — and the UAE — copes with the increased demand of tourists, as well as the exhibitors.
This unprecedented increase in consumer demand has resulted in a shortfall in the supply of staff to various venues. As we mentioned in ‘What Can You Do To Meet Unexpected Supply Demands Quickly?’ the best way to manage increased demand is hire part-time workers.
