The EXPO Dubai in UAE starts on October 20th 2020 and runs until April 10th 2021 under the motto “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future” and is the first EXPO in its 170-year history to be held in an Arabic country. Around 200 nations and organizations will be presenting impulses to the motto and subtopics opportunity, mobility and sustainability. Austria’s EUR 16.5 mn. “in dialogue with austria” pavilion is the Highlight of the Event , as it will be built out of around sixty clay cones, spanning 2.400m² and use natural forces for a smart air-conditioning concept.

The pavilion designed by querkraft combines traditional and modern elements to showcase Austria as an innovative location in the heart of Europe and aims to impress all of the expected 25 millions of visitors at the mega-event in Dubai. Through successful exporting, Austrian companies generate jobs at home, which makes the EXPO a perfect location to present the country.

The Austrian participation at EXPO is directly geared to deepening the bilateral relations with the UAE, as Dubai is the ideal starting point when entering trade with the Arabian Peninsula and to strengthen Austria’s position in the region. Last year Austrian FDI in the region reached almost EUR 5bn.
