EXPO World Exhibitions are the largest and the most prestigious economic, promotional and cultural events in the world. EXPO 2020 in Dubai is due to take place between 20 October 2020 and 10 April 2021, and will be the first World Exhibition organised in an Arabic country.
Poland has been an active participant of the World Exhibitions for many years now. Apart from building the Pavilion and its own exhibition in Dubai, Poland plans to carry out accompanying programmes and events, as well as taking part in the Organiser’s initiatives. The Polish exhibition will be accompanied by an economic programme, political and diplomatic programme, cultural promotion programme, tourism promotion programme and regional programmes. Following the exhibition’s main theme – “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future” – several dozen public and private entities are involved in Poland’s preparations for participation in EXPO 2020 in Dubai. The leading themes of the exhibition recommended by the organisers – sustainability and mobility – are elaborated by Poland in three subject areas: technology, international cooperation and nature. The theme of the Polish Pavilion is “Creativity inspired by nature”. Poland will be represented as a strong centre of cooperation that uses scientific development to offer the world sustainable and eco-friendly technologies inspired by nature. The objectives of Poland’s presence at EXPO 2020 in Dubai include both the strengthening of Poland’s image around the world and economic promotion. We plan to create a multidimensional presentation of technologies and companies representing sectors of strategic importance from the perspective of exports to Middle Eastern markets and, consequently, real growth in business transactions.
