New Zealand at Expo 2020
Care for People and Place
The theme is based on the indigenous environmental ethos of kaitiakitanga, and reflects our role as guardians across all we do and create. Located in Expo 2020’s Sustainability District, the New Zealand Pavilion will celebrate our innovation, creativity and integrity.
By participating at Expo 2020 we aim to shift the perception of New Zealand through its inherent innovative and authentic approach to caring for people and place. We will use Expo 2020 to demonstrate to the world the power of partnerships and transparency and to leave an authentic legacy of Care for People and Place.
The Pavilion and a programme of events across the six months of Expo 2020 will promote New Zealand as a trusted trade and investment partner, and as a destination for education and tourism.
The indigenous environmental ethos of kaitiakitanga will be the underlying theme of New Zealand’s pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, inspired by the world-first legal status accorded to the Whanganui River.
Creative Director Parris Goebel will shape a unique, dynamic New Zealand performance experience for millions of visitors at Expo 2020 Dubai, as the curator of the entertainment and cultural programme for New Zealand at Expo 2020.
Take advantage of the size, scale and location of Expo 2020 Dubai and use the New Zealand Pavilion hosting venues to further your business outcomes.
