Etisalat, Accenture partner for Explore 2020
Etisalat and Accenture have partnered to present a digital preview of Expo2020.

Etisalat Digital is collaborating with Accenture to give visitors to GITEX Technology Week a taste of the innovative digital experiences that will be available at Expo 2020 Dubai.  The joint Digital Services Premier Partners are showcasing Explore 2020, an interactive 3D fly-through experience of what awaits attendees at Expo 2020, on the Etisalat stand at GITEX.

The 3D environment, rendered in real time, provides a scale replica of the Expo site, allowing visitors to ‘fly through' and navigate the Expo 2020 Dubai site at will, as a result of Accenture and Etisalat Digital's design, development and optimization effort.

 "We are excited to bring this unique 3D experience of ‘Explore 2020' that will take our visitors on a special journey of the Expo 2020 Dubai site," says Francisco Salcedo, Senior Vice President, Etisalat Digital. "This joint project with Accenture will give all visitors an insight of Expo 2020 Dubai and take them through all the highlights of this global event including behind the scene highlight of Etisalat contribution to the site such as 5G capabilities launched earlier this year."

"In 2020 millions of visitors will enjoy an incredible journey around the Expo site, which will be one of the smartest, fastest and best-connected places on the planet," says Mohammed AlHashmi, Senior Vice President of Innovation and Future Technology at Expo 2020 Dubai. "I'm delighted that visitors to GITEX today can have a special preview of this experience, thanks to Accenture and Etisalat Digital."

"Expo 2020 Dubai is an event that will connect both minds and people together, by generating innovative ideas and solutions for a brighter and better future," says Gerardo Canta, managing director and Accenture's Communications, Media & Technology lead for the Middle East & Turkey.
