World exhibitions - EXPO

World exhibitions (EXPOs) are mega events at which the participating countries brand themselves and display their latest inventions related to the theme of the exhibition.

Everyday items like the telephone (1876), video conference (1964) and touchscreens (1982) were all presented for the first time on an EXPO.

The next universal EXPO takes place in Dubai in 2020. You can read more about EXPO2020 on EXPO's website.

Danish participation in EXPO 2020

The official Denmark does not participate in EXPO 2020 in Dubai. However, the Danish Business Council Dubai participates in EXPO 2020 with a privately funded pavillion. The Danish Business Council Dubai and the Danish companies behind the initiative have set up the website expo2020.dk where you can read more about the participation.
