Inspired experiences and adventure await at one of the most sustainable structures at Expo 2020 Dubai, taking place from October 1 – March 31, 2022.

The state-of-the-art Saudi Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai is set to be a highlight during the buzzworthy event where people can reconnect, meet new contacts and discover fresh horizons. The 13,000 square-metre pavilion, the second largest after the UAE’s, has received various accolades, and needless to say, garnered a lot of attention.

Firstly, the pavilion has earned the LEED Platinum Certificate from the US Green Building Council, the highest internationally recognised sustainability rating in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. As well as being placed among the most sustainable designs in the world, the exhibition area holds three Guinness World Records. These are for the largest interactive lighting floor feature, with around 8,000 LED lights, the longest interactive water feature, at over 32 metres, and the largest LED interactive digital mirror screen, at 1302.5 square metres.

People, opportunity, nature and heritage are the four pillars that anchor the visitor experience at the Saudi Pavilion. And the jaw-dropping moments start right upon arrival to the venue that allows visitors to experience the Kingdom’s rich past, vibrant present and promising future. A 68 square-metre curved LED screen is the beginning of a technology-enabled journey through five ecosystems, hinting at the Kingdom’s natural spaces, beautiful coasts, vast deserts, surrounding seas and high mountains. Whether it’s the flora of Al Bardani Valley in Asir, the mighty mountains of Tabuk, the dunes of the Empty Quarter in southeastern Saudi or the crystal-clear waters of the Red Sea, the tour is sure to be nothing short of spellbinding.
