If anyone were to ask where the tallest building can be found, you’ll find Dubai at the top of the answers. Just like how the Burj Khalifa cemented Dubai’s fame as a land of architectural feats, the Expo 2020 is set to catapult the Emirate once again into the global limelight, as it welcomes the world for a six-month-long trade fair that starts on October 1, 2021.
