Introductory Facts

The Expo 2020 world exhibition was supposed to occur, as the name suggests, in 2020. However, due to the pandemic, it takes place on the turn of the years 2021 – 2022.

The exhibition is divided into five categories focusing on topics related to sustainability, mobility and opportunities. There’s also a relaxation area in the form of parks AI Forsan and Jubilee Park with a lookout tower, which offers a 360-degree view of the entire Expo.

The individual pavilions are spread over an area of 438 ha. The organizer estimates that up to 25 million visitors from all over the world will see the exhibition. Taking the pandemic into account, this really is a large number, and not only safety but also hygiene measures apply very strictly throughout the duration.

Slovak Pavilion

There was originally a chance that Slovakia would be missing among the 192 countries at the exhibition. In the end, however, everything turned out well. We opened the Slovak pavilion with a slight delay and recently, on January 27, 2022, the National Day of the Slovak Republic was held in the Slovak pavilion. The President of the Slovak Republic, Zuzana Čaputová, also supported this exceptional event with her presence and a celebratory speech.

Visitors will find the three-storey Slovak pavilion covering an area of more than 2,000 square meters in the heart of the Mobility theme zone. The aim of the Slovak exhibition is to create an attractive space for a prestigious presentation of Slovakia and for establishing relationships with individual visitors and countries as well as business partners. The main exhibits of the Slovak pavilion are the MH2 hydrogen car, the Androver I and II space mobile robots, the Nisus gyroplane and a VRM simulator. The participation of Slovak business entities is supported by the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency SARIO.

How can we build a healthier world?

The answers to this question will be presented in the thematic Health & Wellness week and are the focus of attention at Expo 2020 from January 30, 2022 to February 14, 2022.

Transformational innovations and health-related technologies will be presented during this period. Looking at how the COVID-19 pandemic has tested our interconnected world, our health systems and society as a whole, the Expo offers an opportunity to come together and design a healthier and better global world. 

For example, it includes the UK-based MeeTwo mental health app, which helps teenagers talk about complex issues. Or the Coolar project, whose water-based cooling technology independent from electricity enables off-grid medical facilities in developing regions to reliably store life-saving drugs and vaccines. 

Our company is also one of the exhibitors and at the exhibition it presents digital products that improve life, especially in the field of health. For example, Crossuite is an accredited information and reservation system for medical facilities. The application is used by doctors to manage their agenda and by patients to book their appointments. It’s used by more than 8,000 doctors and 4.5 million patients in 23 countries around the world.

Expo 2020 supports a number of innovation and healthcare-related projects all around the world. Never in the history of the World’s Fair have so many nations and so many cultures come together to do so much good for humanity.

Not only work but also holiday and wellness

You can also combine the visit to Expo 2020 with a pleasant holiday in Dubai, where you can experience relaxation and rest on the most beautiful sandy beaches and in high-quality hotels. It takes place at an ideal time when the Arabian Peninsula isn’t at its hottest and it’s a good time to get to know various places as well as the desert, which can be explored on quad bikes, jeeps, bikes or even camels.

District 2020

Expo is not only an exhibition but also a lively laboratory environment and a testing ground for new technologies and ideas. And it’s also designed to create a smarter and more balanced way of life in the form of District 2020, a city focused on the needs of its urban community, which will remain here even after the exhibition.

It will provide a managed, innovation-driven business ecosystem that connects global minds and incorporates technology and digital innovation to support industry growth. It will be home to an inclusive and diverse community looking for a more balanced way of life – a place that favors well-being, inspires new ideas, facilitates growth and enables human potential.
