Business Opportunities

Expected to attract 25 million visits from 192 nations between October 2021 and April 2022, the World Expo in the United Arab Emirates is set to make history. These numbers alone make Expo 2020 Dubai the ideal stage for ambitious Dutch businesses and organisations. This global event is an extraordinary springboard for business and trade in the region well beyond 2020. Now is the time to get in and showcase the kind of innovative and sustainable solutions that the Kingdom of the Netherlands is known for, with a particular focus on water, energy and food.

Expo 2020 is a chance to work together and build on the important, growing global consensus regarding the Sustainable Development Goals. These goals provide a framework for a more effective way of partnering to create a better future, through solutions that bring together governments, businesses and knowledge institutions alike. The Dutch pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai – located in the Sustainability district – is an opportunity to showcase the innovative and sustainable solutions the Netherlands can provide in the areas of water, energy and food and the links that connect them.

There are 6 ways you can participate in DutchDubai. From becoming a sponsor of our pavilion to participating in a trade mission and from following us on social media to joining our Dutch Dubai Business Leverage Programme. Discover them all below.

6 ways to participate in DutchDubai

1. Join the Dutch Dubai Business Leverage Programme

We have special Track-Teams that represent our central theme of connecting Water-Energy-Food. These teams organize events and activities throughout the Expo to position best what the Netherlands has on offer. This programme will provide customised assistance to businesses of all sizes, allowing you to take advantage of commercial opportunities in the Gulf region and beyond. Whether you’re already internationally active or just considering taking that step, we’re here to help.


2. Sponsor the Dutch pavilion

There are several ways in which you can sponsor the pavilion. Read more about this on our get involved page.

3. Book the pavilion to host your event

Our pavilion is an experience, but also functions as a platform where you can host your guests for meetings or events. Our VIP lounge and auditorium have all the facilities you will need to impress and make connections.

4. Participate in Dutch trade missions or join us at conferences in the region

We regularly organise trade missions to countries in the Gulf and beyond. These missions can open doors for you that would otherwise be closed. You can connect with your target audience and form alliances with partners from all over the world. Join us, and let us introduce you to our partners and network there.

5. Do you have a great idea? Let us know!

We want this Expo to be a collective effort: a collaboration between businesses, government and knowledge institutions. If you have an interesting idea, we would love to hear from you!
