The largest event ever held in the Arab world was expected to attract 190 participating countries and millions of visitors from around the world. Hundreds of pavilions offered interactive exhibitions, live entertainment, unique meeting spaces, cool meeting places and much more.
The motto is: „Connecting Minds, Creating the Future“.
The world’s fair, using the best examples of collaboration, innovation and cooperation from around the world, was intended to inspire people. World’s fairs have featured innovations such as the telephone (Philadelphia, 1876), the Eiffel Tower (Paris, 1889), the Ferris Wheel (Chicago, 1893), the x-ray machine (Buffalo, 1901), ice cream cones (St. Louis, 1904), television (New York, 1939), IMAX (Osaka, 1970), touch screens (Knoxville, 1982) and the humanoid robot (Nagoya, 2005).
We were technically in charge of two pavilions at the same time. These included the German Pavilion and the Monegasque Pavilion. The main challenge was the size and complexity of the international project.
