Saudi Arabia Named Host for 2030 World Expo

In a highly contested bid, Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, has been unveiled as the host city for the 2030 World Expo, edging out competition from South Korea's Busan and Italy’s Rome. This marks Saudi Arabia's inaugural hosting of the World Fair, making it the second GCC country to stage the international exhibition, following Dubai's Expo 2020 held in 2021 and 2022.

The World Expo, originating from the 1851 Great Exhibition in London, is a major global event that takes place every five years, attracting millions of visitors. The decision follows intense lobbying efforts from Italy, Saudi Arabia, and South Korea, highlighting the significance of securing the prestigious hosting opportunity.
