This is a giant Expo with an expected 25 million visitors and Monaco is playing an important role in it. It is in Dubai 2020 and the countdown is 360 days to be ready for next October. That’s almost a year to prepare and the Expo itself lasts almost 6 months (173 days to be exact). This is the first world exhibition in the Middle East and it will be held from October 20, 2020 to April 10, 2021.
Monaco is right now in the process of building its own Pavillion on a unique site in the form of three petals.
The theme of the EXPO is “Connecting Spirits, Building the Future”. The site is built like three petals, each corresponding to a thematic district: Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability, converging towards a focal point, Al Wasl Plaza. The exhibition will gather more than 200 participants including 192 countries.
Monaco Pavillion’s theme is “Monaco 360 °, a World of Opportunities”. The Pavillion concept is inspired by a kaleidoscope. The objective is to present during the 173 days of EXPO the many facets of the Principality: its characteristics, its professions, its activities, its multiple perspectives, its diversity … and the incredible amount of activities, too often unknown; there are so many opportunities offered within this small exceptional country of Monaco. A 360 ° overview to discover the Principality.
25 million people visiting the world Expo in Dubai are going to have the opportunity to discover Monaco in all its 360 degrees – which for many will be an eye opener.
And so it’s the green light to race to be ready. The land for Monaco’s site has already been designated. The building process for the Pavillion of just under 1500 square metres has just started. And even hiring is being planned at this early stage.
All that remains is for a high quality segment of that 25 million people to be “wowed” by the magic of the Principality.
