Long ago, travellers referred to Dubai as Al Wasl, or “the connection” – a name that reflects the area’s heritage as a meeting point. This spirit of coming together takes shape in Al Wasl Plaza, Expo 2020’s spectacular centrepiece and gathering ground for celebration and wonder.

Beacons of Al Wasl
As visitors walk under the magnificent Al Wasl Dome, their eye will be drawn to 42 striking one-metre diameter bronze medallions laid into the ground beneath their feet.
Just like beacons of light in a dark night, each of these bronze sculptures enlightens the ideas, achievements, people and places that are part of the country’s success and growth.
