The UK is taking part in the next World Expo in Dubai from 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021.
The UK’s Pavilion will be based on our global theme ‘Innovating for a shared future’. It will showcase an innovative and creative design to promote the UK’s international agenda and British innovation, creativity and leadership.
The Pavilion will offer visitors a unique experience, building on previous award-winning installations at Expo 2010 Shanghai (The Seed Cathedral) and Expo 2015 Milan (The Hive). It also provides a platform for a 6 month programme of business and cultural activity.
‘Connecting minds, creating the future’ is the overarching theme for Expo 2020 Dubai. The UK will be one of 180 nations participating, alongside non-government organisations and sponsors.
The site will be split into 3 districts:
The UK Pavilion will be in the opportunity district.
World Expos aim to foster creativity, showcase innovation and promote collaboration on a global scale. Around 25 million visitors are expected over the course of the event, including global heads of government. This presents a significant opportunity to realise geopolitical and economic benefits for an outward-looking, Global Britain.
