Hosted at Terminus Group’s new Regional HQ, located in the very heart of Expo 2020’s Al Wasl Dome, Louvre Abu Dhabi recently held the "New Power of Art” forum; bringing together a dedicated audience of art and technology professionals to emphasize the trend towards digitization in art and the changing role of museums in curating these new forms of cultural tourism.

The ‘New Power of Art’ forum is further evidence that.”
These forum discussions highlighted the vision of future urban life, through a combination of culture and technology, and the cooperation opportunities for Terminus Group’s AIoT digital and smart services to enable green, low-carbon, and sustainable future urban development.
With an increasing reliance on AIoT (Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things), along with other cutting-edge technologies now providing a digitally smart and new cultural travel experience, Terminus Group and Louvre Abu Dhabi, have both demonstrated a shared commitment to adding new vitality to cultural and technological exchanges.

A history of common exchange, Expo 2020 Dubai, and a future of co-operation
Expo 2020 Dubai is not only bringing business opportunities to the UAE but also creating more new opportunities for international companies to grow in the UAE. As one of the official premiere partners of Expo 2020 Dubai, and an anchor tenant in its legacy development, District 2020, Terminus Group is at the heart of creating future opportunities for tech, culture, and international cooperation.
Including creating the orange robot mascot ‘Opti’, Terminus Group has provided Expo 2020 Dubai with 152 Titan Series intelligent robots, which use AIoT for both human interaction and practical technological scenarios, assisting visitors at Expo 2020 Dubai.
Victor Ai, founder, and CEO of Terminus Group believes that Expo 2020’s three core pillars – mobility, sustainability, and opportunity – may become the three main elements of future cities. Terminus Group’s willingness to work with ecological partners from around the world such as technology and cultural tourism demonstrates that technology is not only about function but very much aligned with human-centric environments and well-being.
