Economic impact of world expo on host country

Related Introduction This proposal outlines the following research question: This is an interesting topic for two primary reasons. The first is the personal workplace experience of the author, which involved a position at Dubai Media Incorporated Dubai TV conducting analysis about current affairs in the UAE region. The second is the fact that this is a landmark moment in the history of Dubai, the UAE, and the Middle in general, as it is the first time that an international exposition has been held in the region.

It is possible that it will lead to the development of new forms of culture; the old may be reformulated and developed in unique ways, but it may also be fused with ideas and institutions from abroad to create novel cultural hybrids. Research questions This research will aim to answer the following questions: What factors are likely to contribute to the success or failure of the World Expo 2020?

Benefits to last post-expo

What are the social, economic, and cultural changes that Dubai is a likely to experience? How might Dubai use the World Expo 2020 as a marketing tool?

  1. Basically, the principle purpose of this expo is to educate the folks and strengthen the good relations between the host and participating countries. In total, more than 70 million people have visited the exposition, including 22 heads of states and governments and 78 foreign ministers.
  2. This volume of activity has also required significant logistical management.
  3. An economist with a leading bank, who requested not to be named, said economic impact studies will be conducted after the selection process is over in November. Therefore, the event itself does not generally create profit for the organisers, but there are positive spillovers that occur over a period of time.
  4. The event is being monitored through security cameras and 250 suspects have been identified. Helal Al Marri, director-general of Dubai's Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing believes the event's impact on these sectors will be huge.

How might Dubai use the symbolic economy to aid its cultural and urban regeneration and shape its new urban identity? Will Expo 2020 commentary and press show Dubai in a positive or negative light?

What impact will the Expo 2020 have on Dubai

Literature review Due to the very recent nature of the announcement, there is almost no literature dealing directly with the relationship between Dubai and the Expo 2020. However, there has been considerable commentary in the form of political and economic punditry, much of which is academic.

  1. It was visited by 659,452 people.
  2. How might Dubai use the symbolic economy to aid its cultural and urban regeneration and shape its new urban identity?
  3. Within two months, 867 lost items were found, 273 of which were returned. It was visited by 659,452 people.
  4. Jitendra Gianchandani, chairman and managing partner of Jitendra Consulting Group, said tangible benefits are difficult to measure, but otherwise it has infinite purpose to host such events.
  5. The second is the fact that this is a landmark moment in the history of Dubai, the UAE, and the Middle in general, as it is the first time that an international exposition has been held in the region. From June 10 till Aug.

Rose and Spiegel 2009for example, stress that much of the evidence for the benefits of mega events is commissioned by groups with biasing agendas e. The same is argued by Nitsch and Wendland 2013who also point to the large initial investment in facilities and infrastructure associated with mega events, which can place a considerable burden on the local or national economy; there tends also to be a dramatic and unpredictable effect on property prices.

The conclusion of Nitsch and Wendland 2013 is that mega events tend to have an overwhelmingly negative effect on population growth i. However, Nitsch and Wendland 2013and Rose and Spiegel 2009point to the difficulty of estimating the impact of major events. Problems quantifying the effects, especially on phenomena such as labour markets, are often exacerbated by the fact that many studies are commissioned ex ante by biased groups. Moreover, in conducting analyses such as this, it is difficult to find an adequate sample size due to the infrequency of mega events.

Then there are problems with the intangibility of cultural and social spillover effects, as well as the economic multiplier Rose and Spiegel, 2009.

Methodology The effects of the Expo 2020 are best assessed using a variety of methodological approaches, employing both quantitative and qualitative methods. From the quantitative side there will be content analysis-case studies and statistical analyses. From the qualitative, there will be surveys, questionnaires, and interviews.

  • Will Expo 2020 commentary and press show Dubai in a positive or negative light?
  • The BIE estimates that Milan Expo 2015 is expected to generate 70,000 job opportunities and 21 million visitors are expected during May- October period in 2015.

In terms of research philosophy or methodology, strictly speakingthis research will take both an objectivist and a subjectivist approach Crotty, 1998. It would be advantageous to use what Nitsch and Wendland 2013: Meaning and Perspective in Research Progress.
