Talabat named food delivery platform for Expo 2020 Dubai

Officials signing the agreement ... Visitors to Expo 2020 Dubai will be able to order from Talabat on-site from a wide range of restaurants to either have their food delivered or to collect from Talabat’s pick-up points.


Talabat has been selected as the food delivery platform for Expo 2020 Dubai.

Visitors to The World’s Greatest Show will be able to order from Talabat on-site from a wide range of restaurants to either have their food delivered or to collect from Talabat’s pick-up points.

At Expo 2020 Dubai, Talabat will launch a tech-driven cloud kitchen, featuring an assortment of restaurants serving freshly prepared food.

Visitors can try cuisines from around the world and expect ultra-fast and eco-friendly delivery, reflecting Expo 2020’s sub-themes of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.

Focused on, and optimised for, deliveries, the Talabat cloud kitchen will adapt to the demand trends – shoring up products that are highly sought-after, while also reducing waste.

Darren Tse, director – concessions and programming, commercial, Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “Having the leading food delivery platform Talabat on board as Expo’s food delivery platform will enable visitors to conveniently order food from around the event site. We are excited to bring people closer to a cloud kitchen, which is a key changing trend in the food and beverage industry, and adds diversity and value to the visitor experience.”

It is estimates that there will be 25 million visits to the Expo site during the six-month event and up to 500,000 meals are expected to be served on the busiest days.

Tomaso Rodriguez, CEO of Talabat, said: “Our cloud kitchen concept brings unique advantages: in addition to offering customers a wide choice of freshly prepared foods from many corners of the world, it also helps minimise waste and makes food delivery service even more efficient and nimble.”

Expo 2020 Dubai is set to run from October 20, 2020 to April 10, 2021.
