Expo Champions

Meet the Expo Champions of the Netherlands

In the run-up to and during Expo 2020 Dubai, our Expo Champions will actively bring the opportunities in the Gulf region to the attention of Dutch businesses and knowledge institutions of all sizes.

The Dutch Expo Champions are experts in the fields of international trade, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), water, energy and food. Through them, we aim to showcase the highly innovative character of the Netherlands. And their contribution to roadshows, seminars and trade missions helps to underline the added value of collaboration with Dutch businesses and knowledge institutions at an international level.
