EXPO 2020 Dubai UAE
November 14, 2018
The 35th universal World Expo will be held in Dubai from 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021. It is the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East. Under the motto ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, with this being expressed into three sub-themes: Mobility, Sustainability, and Opportunity, 170 countries will present their ideas, innovations and technologies.
EXPO 2020 Dubai will offer an estimated 20 to 25 million visitors and the participants many opportunities and chances. Many European companies are taking part in order to give European public and private stakeholders a platform to strengthen their network and position in the Gulf region both before and during the Dubai EXPO.
As the development, project management and construction of Expo 2020 begins, there are significant opportunities for European companies to get involved. The Expo 2020 team has indicated they will not be limiting contracts to local providers and are actively encouraging international suppliers of goods and services to get involved.
Expo 2020 is committed to supporting SMEs, with a commitment of 20% of primary and subcontracts to be awarded to SMEs.
