Singapore at Expo 2020 Dubai


Themed “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”, Expo 2020 Dubai will be a global celebration that amazes the world. Offering visitors 173 days of food, music, technology, art, science, culture and creativity, it will also provide a platform to address global challenges, and foster creativity, innovation and collaboration among its 192 participating countries. Expo 2020 will also be the first World Expo to be hosted in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region.

On 4 May 2020, the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) announced that more than two-thirds majority of BIE Member States voted in favour of postponing the global event by one year, to allow all country participants to safely navigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to allow the World Expo to focus on a collective desire for new thinking to identify solutions to some of the greatest challenges of our time. Expo 2020 Dubai retains its name and will now run from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.

The Singapore Pavilion, with the theme of ‘Nature, Nurture, Future’, encapsulates Singapore’s story of overcoming its physical limitations as a small island city-state and adapting itself to become a highly liveable and sustainable city. With the world becoming more fast-paced, diverse and unpredictable, it is essential that Singapore adapts to remain resilient.

The Singapore Pavilion aims to encourage visitors to contemplate their roles in fostering stronger relationships between nature and the built environment, as we continue to nurture our land and people to create even more possibilities for our future.

Through a creative and experiential journey of individual and collective discoveries, visitors will get to experience and understand Singapore’s evolution into a city in a garden, where there is a synergistic and collaborative relationship between the community, nature, and the built environment.

The pavilion also aims to celebrate Singapore’s spirit of ingenuity and creativity by profiling Singaporean design, capabilities and businesses through various programmes and activities.
