Wales is taking part in Dubai Expo from 1 October 2021 - 31 March 2022.

In Wales, we’ve been busy— preparing for the future. Thinking about what people and planet, communities and companies will need to flourish in the years ahead.

And at Expo 2020 we showcase this ambition. 

Through a curated series of events and announcements, stories and talks, we’ll show how Wales is creating better, more sustainable ways of living and working, travelling and trading. 

Our stories will be told by the ambitious Welsh doers, thinkers, makers, crafters and innovators. 

And we’re inviting like-minded partners around the globe to join us—to work with us, to do good things and create a better future. 

This is Future Thinking.  
This is Wales.
