Be part of the UK Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai
The Department for International Trade (DIT) is inviting UK-based companies to register their interest to submit exhibits as part of the UK Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai.
The exhibition will cover the UK’s history, key influencers, how we collaborate with other nations, and the future innovations in areas such as AI, Space, Robotics, education and R&D, telling the story of the UK from 1851 through to 2050. It will feature the UK’s world-class products and services, such as UK fashion and textiles, which will be viewed by the general public at the event, as well as global business leaders, senior government officials, celebrities and VIPs.
Expo 2020 Dubai will be held for 173 days, seven days a week, featuring 192 country pavilions and 60 live shows daily. It will be the first World Expo ever hosted in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region. Expo 2020 is expected to attract 25 million visits, with 70% of visitors projected to come from outside the UAE.
