EXPO 2020 Dubai: Connecting Minds, Creating the Future
Kingdom of Bahrain Pavilion

Date: 20 October 2020 - 10 April 2021

Location: United Arab Emirates

Following its award-winning pavilion at the 2015 Expo Milan, the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities is pleased to announce the participation of the Kingdom of Bahrain in Expo 2020 Dubai, the first World Expo take place in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia region. Expo 2020 Dubai is the perfect opportunity to highlight the successes and developments in the Arab world, with Bahrain playing an important role towards these achievements. The overarching theme of Expo 2020 Dubai is “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”, which will be explored through three sub-themes of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability. 

Running from 20 October 2020 until 10 April 2021, Expo 2020 Dubai is expected to attract 25 million visits, with 70% of all visitors coming from outside the UAE, thus giving Bahrain a unique opportunity to promote its cultural sites and enhance its trade relations with the world.

The Kingdom of Bahrain Pavilion will focus on the theme of “Density” as an enabler of opportunities; an intricate exploration of the dense natural and urban compositions of Bahrain. Bahrain’s relatively small geography has defined its development throughout the ages and the pavilion will showcase the way in which scarcity of land has naturally led to density in its development. This specific regional attribute of density has obliged the Islands to constantly reinvent themselves on the limited land available, and by doing so garnered a mentality of trade, entrepreneurship and innovation, that represents one of the country’s biggest strengths and distinctiveness.
