A range of activities are planned, including more than 40 performances and events taking place every day for the 93-day period. Some of the larger events planned include the Big-O, a nightly light and laser show, and the Fountain Show which takes place on a stage constructed on the sea.

The Expo site will also include an open-air gallery housing artworks and architectural designs offering a glimpse of a high-tech seafront city in the year 2050. The Ocean Experience Park and a Marine Life Pavilion will display life in the five major oceans of the world.
