Direct Access worked with Expo City on the accessibility of the site for COP28 UAE. Managed by Expo City, the City will host the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference this November.

Direct Access provided a team of Access Consultants onsiteĀ undertaking international accessibility standard benchmarking for best-in-class accessibility. Our Access Consultants delivered;

  • Full design plan reviews for concept, schematic, and final design stages.
  • Site-wide audits of existing facilities and fit-out processes of new facilities for standard compliance and opportunities to innovate.
  • Provided a point of call for all accessibility queries from all departments.
  • Advised international participants and other stakeholders on accessibility operations.

What is EXPO City?

Expo City Dubai is a purposeā€“built, eco-friendly facility that was previously constructed to host the World Expo 2020 Dubai for a period of six months (for which Direct Access also managed accessibility). It has since been transformed into a sustainable business centre hosting a wide range of leisure and cultural activities and even offering residential opportunities in the form of District 2020, a complex made of 15 high-rise buildings.

COP-28 will see world leaders unite to discuss ways to achieve sustainability and enable action towards world climate security.

Like previous editions, the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) known as COP28, will assess and drive progress on combatting climate change.
