Sustainability Mobility,

These three themes, which are the underlying thread of Expo Dubai 2020, will be showcased in the Belgian pavilion. They represent three major global challenges that must be met to ensure a sustainable future for future generations.

The Belgian Pavilion

Nicknamed the Green Arch, the Belgian pavilion has already been declared one of the most beautiful pavilions on the Expo site. Built on a plot of approximately 2,180 m² in the heart of the 'mobility' zone and directly on the main avenue, the Belgian pavilion will enjoy exceptional visibility and be able to welcome more than 15,000 visitors per day.
