Round table for EXPO 2020 Dubai


We invite you to the round table “EXPO 2020 Dubai” as a part of Slovenian participation at the international exhibition. At the round table we and our key speakers will be discussing the role that Slovenia will play in Dubai – what can we expect from the participation and presentation of the country, which are our key economic, gastronomic and tourist advantages and where do our key speakers see the potential both at home and abroad.

From 20th of October 2020 to 10th of April 2021, Slovenia will participate in the international exhibition “EXPO 2020 Dubai“, which will be held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

EXPO 2020 Dubai will host 192 countries from all parts of the world for 173 days. The countries will be presented in their special pavilions in the first World Expo held in this region. The EXPO will be the largest event ever staged in the Arab world.

The slogan of this year’s EXPO is: “Where creating a better world is in your hands.”  To build a better world, we need to use our heads and our hearts.

The main topics of this year’s EXPO 2020 Dubai will be mobility, sustainability and opportunity. Slovenia will be participating within the concept of a sustainable aspect that emphasizes respect for our planets and a balanced lifestyle.
