About Expo 2020 Dubai

Held every five years, World Expos are global events running over six months that aim to educate the public, celebrate innovation and progress made by humanity, and foster cooperation between businesses, academics, scientists and countries.

The next expo will take place from 20 October 2020 - 10 April 2021 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, under the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’. Held for the first time in the Middle East, it is expected to attract 25 million visitors, with around 70 per cent coming from overseas. Dubai’s expo will focus on collaboration and partnership.

Expo 2020 Dubai will showcase and explore what is possible when new ideas and people connect under three sub-themes:

  1. Opportunity – unlocking the potential with individuals and communities to shape a better future
  2. Mobility – creating smarter and more productive movement of people, goods and ideas
  3. Sustainability – living in balance with the planet.

Each sub-theme will have its own area within the expo site, called a district.

The Australian government has committed to participating in Expo 2020 Dubai and the Australian Pavilion will be located in the mobility district. The Australian Pavilion will maximise commercial opportunities for Australia, showcase our cultural assets and innovations and tell the Australian story.
