Connecting Minds, Creating the Future

The six-month long Expo 2020 Dubai will be the first Expo to take place in the Middle East, North Africa, or South Asia and is expected to attract 15 million visitors; 5 million of whom may visit the U.S. pavilion. The event, now scheduled for October 1, 2021 – March 31, 2022 coincides with the UAE’s 50th founding anniversary.

The theme of Expo 2020 Dubai is Connecting Minds, Creating the Future, representing the potential of what can be achieved when meaningful collaborations and partnerships are forged. The Expo’s subthemes are Opportunity, Mobility, and Sustainability. The U.S. pavilion’s theme is “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of the Future” and the pavilion’s exhibition and cultural programming will celebrates the historic spirit of creativity and invention that has driven America to create the future we live in today.
