The procedures for companies interested in bidding in tender procedures for EXPO Dubai 2020 are being simplified. It will no longer be necessary to have a commercial permit valid for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to complete registration through the EXPO procurement management portal. Registration is a necessary step for eligibility to take part in the subsequent selection procedures.
All Italian companies will be able to connect to the site https://esource.expo2020dubai.ae/esop/uae-e20-host/public/web/login.jst and register, taking care as they do so to insert their Italian commercial license number in the “trade license” field.
Once they have completed the procedure, they will gain access to the various commercial opportunities published by the Bureau. They will also be able to provide all the necessary information regarding their spheres of activity and expertise. It is only after the contracts have been awarded that companies who have not yet obtained a commercial license valid in the UAE will have to take steps to do so.
