DUBAI EXPO 2020
WORLD EXPO 2020 – Connecting minds, creating the future
Finland, together with 40 Finnish companies and clusters, will participate in the World Expo 2020 in Dubai with her own pavilion "Snow Cape". Around 190 countries are participating in the Expo. Over 25 million visitors are expected, of which 70 per cent could come from outside the UAE.
INNOVATIONS, IDEAS, ACHIEVEMENTS
A World Expo is a large international exhibition designed to highlight achievements of nations, to promote their innovations and progress, as well as educate and entertain visitors. The first World Expo took place in London in 1851. These Expos vary in character and are held in different parts of the world. The most recent international exhibition, Expo 2017, was held in Astana, Kazakhstan. Now the excitement builds towards the next World Expo in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, between October 20, 2020 and April 10, 2021.
FINLAND – SHARING INNOVATIVE COMPETENCIES
The theme of Expo 2020 is "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future" with three subthemes of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability. The working theme of Finland is "Sharing Innovative Competences".
Participation in Expo 2020 will strengthen existing relationships and build new connections between both Finland and Finnish companies with the UAE, the Gulf region and globally. Participation will promote Finland, her positive country image and values, Finnish exports, internationalisation and competitiveness, as well as increase Finland's attractiveness for tourism and investments.
THE FINLAND PAVILION
The Finland Pavilion, “Snow Cape”, is located in the Mobility District. The tender for the construction of the Finland Pavilion has been awarded to the international project team of Expomobilia, JKMM Architects, Factor Nova, Beyond Limits and Five Currents. The pavilion building will focus on the themes of nature, innovation and sustainability.
Inspired by the white blanket of snow, which covers the Finnish landscape in winter, the Finland Pavilion resembles a white tent made of snow. The visual identity of the Finland Pavilion incorporates both Finnish and Arab cultures, starting with the main entrance which gives an impression of arriving in an Arabic tent.
Within the busy and noisy Expo environment, Finland's Pavilion offers clarity and serenity. From outside the shape is simple but refined. In the middle of the pavilion, a peaceful wooden space “Gorge” is carved into the building, offering Expo visitors respite within a calming retreat.
