Connecting New Zealand to the World
Expo 2020 Dubai will now open its doors to the world from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
World Expos are global celebrations of creativity, innovation, humanity and world cultures.
Expo 2020 Dubai will bring together nations and visitors from across the world to showcase new ways of connecting and thinking with each other in a post-pandemic world.
The mega-event will run over six months and is an opportunity to promote New Zealand to an international audience, while celebrating our values, innovation and creativity under the theme Care for People and Place.
The members of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) have voted to postpone Expo 2020 Dubai in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The new dates will be 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
New Zealand supports the decision to postpone Expo 2020 Dubai and was one of the first countries to vote in favour.
Our theme of Care for People and Place will continue to be our source of guidance while we navigate through these challenging times.
