Dubai Expo 2020 – February 2019 Update

An Invitation to Become an Official Provider to the Australia Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai

As you will be aware from our previous correspondence, the Government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is hosting the 2020 World Expo in Dubai from 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021. The weekly schedule that lists key events, themes and associated trade fairs will be available later this year.

In support of this, the Australian Government through DFAT, has committed to build an engaging Australian Pavilion which will host a targeted business program including trade and investment promotions, and a program of contemporary arts and culture.

DFAT has just finalised an invitation for Australian companies to become an “Official Provider to the Australian Pavilion”. For a copy of the invitation and the details of the items they are looking for and what a donor company receives in exchange for the goods and services click here.

DFAT have issued their first quarterly e-newsletter. Members can receive future quarterly updates of this newsletter by completing the subscribe link in the document. We will continue to provide members with updates on the Expo when significant events occur.

We would like to remind members that the commercial opportunity portal the Dubai Expo 2020 team uses is https://omp.expo2020dubai.com. This portal lists all contracts/tenders available and if you register on the portal, they will try to business match your credentials with contracts/tenders, either awarded or on offer.

We hope you find this update useful and we wish you and your company every success in securing business opportunities at this significant event.

Kindest regards,

Peter Grant
Chair Dubai EXPO 2020 Committee
