Expo 2020 Dubai organisers have confirmed that 192 countries will take part in next year's landmark event.

The world fair will be hosted in the Middle East for the very first time, from October 2020 until April 10 the following year, with 25 million visitors expected to flock to the emirate.

Expo is a global celebration of innovation, inventions and human ingenuity which is held every five years, lasting for six months.

The first Expo was held in London back in 1851.

“We have invited all countries in the world without exception, in line with our commitment to making Expo 2020 Dubai a truly international event and platform for all of humanity,” said an Expo spokesman.

“For more than 170 years, World Expos have been apolitical events focused on furthering humanity for the common good through innovation, cultural exchange, creativity and collaboration. We are proud to continue that tradition.”
