The Netherlands will take part in Expo 2020 Dubai. The World Exhibition is being held from 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021. It is the first edition in the Gulf region. More than 190 countries and organisations will present themselves and over 20 to 25 million businesses and private visitors are expected to visit this interesting event.
Expo 2020 Dubai is divided into three districts: Opportunity, Mobility, and Sustainability.
The Netherlands will build a pavilion in the Sustainability district and will focus on the Water, Energy, and Food Nexus theme. The Dutch pavilion is situated next to the pavilions of Singapore and New Zealand, with countries including the Czech Republic and Sweden nearby. The Expo 2020 Dubai offers an excellent opportunity to meet partners from these countries as well as contacts from the other 190 countries attending. NWP is currently considering when it is opportune to visit Expo 2020 Dubai with a delegation from the Dutch water sector. Are you interested in participating?
