Expo 2020 Dubai: the topics

Visiting Expo 2020 Dubai will first of all mean being catapulted into a futuristic universe: the 191 participating countries, in fact, with their Pavilions, will showcase the best of their know-how in terms of architecture and design in response to the Expo 2020 Dubai theme: Connecting Minds, Creating the Future . What is to be expected are therefore experiential structures, places of study able to illustrate, explain but also excite a decidedly varied and international audience on the themes of innovation, collaboration and inspiration. The national pavilions will be organized in three thematic areas, dedicated to Sustainability, Opportunity and Mobility.

There will also be numerous opportunities for further study. Expo 2020 Dubai has in fact a full program of events, conferences and meetings divided into themes and spread over the opening weeks. In October and November, for example, we will talk about Clima & amp; Biodiversity, Space, Urban Development & amp; Rural, Tolerance & amp; Inclusiveness .
