The Legacy of Expo 2020 Dubai

Expo City Dubai will retain a great legacy from Expo 2020. 80% of the site’s infrastructure will remain, with large thematic pavilions such as Terra (Sustainability), Alif (Mobility) and Opportunity continuing as permanent installations for future visitors to marvel at. 

In addition, some of the event’s most visited pavilions will also stay on site. These include UAE, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Egypt, Luxembourg, Australia, Pakistan, India as well as the Women’s and Vision pavilions. Furthermore, three of the event’s most iconic attractions – the spectacular Al Wasl Plaza (featuring the world’s largest 360-degree projection surface), the acclaimed Garden in the Sky observation tower featuring a stunning view of the entire site, and the Surreal water feature, will also be re-opened so you can check out the best of Expo City Dubai at leisure!

Funky Interior Design

Rove Expo City has a continuous contemporary aesthetic throughout. Each zone balances clean lines and fresh functionality with cool comfort and a trendy interior, leaving plenty of space for your dreams along with flashes of quirky local art for a tonne of inspiration.

Save Energy, Waste Less, Re-use More

You don’t get to be the only hotel at the most environmentally friendly World Expo in history without upping your Earth-love ethos to match! Expo City Dubai pledges to be free of single-use plastic, and has over 120 LEED-certified buildings. It has the world’s largest installation of Siemens’ MindSphere, a cloud technology platform that uses smart meters and sensors to keep energy consumption in check.

Rove’s commitment to making a positive impact in everything we do can be found within the big stuff filtering all the way through to the tiny details. We’ve utilised the latest technologies in energy efficiency with increased solar paneling, whilst operating with the leading Artificial Intelligence in food waste solutions and so much more, all in line with our strong spirit of #sustainability. All of these green initiatives proudly give our hotel a Gold certification on the LEED scale, one of the world’s most widely used green building ratings.
