It is the set of large-scale exhibitions that have been held in various cities around the world for more than 150 years, where the different countries of the world are invited to showcase their achievements, reality, and shared vision of the future in a scenario of international collaboration. The first Universal Exhibition was held at the Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London, United Kingdom, in 1851, under the title "Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations". It was during different universal expositions that the telephone was introduced (1878), the Eiffel Tower was inaugurated (1889) and the completion of the construction of the Panama Canal was celebrated (1915).
Expo 2020 Dubai - postponed for a year due to the pandemic - will host the world for 182 days, each packed with new experiences. It will be a time to create, collaborate and innovate. Under the theme "Connecting Minds and Creating the Future," Dubai World Expo 2020 will feature the participation of more than 180 countries and multiple unique pavilions.
These diverse pavilions are separated into three districts. First, the Sustainability District, which will showcase through a variety of activities the ability of humans to coexist with the environment in a world that is constantly modernizing.
Secondly, the Mobility District, which seeks through connections and technological advances to discover new forms of movement through representations, capitals and understanding. In this district is where you will find the Chile Pavilion that will feature various activities, seminars and business networking opportunities for companies.
Finally, the District of Opportunity, which seeks to promote opportunities for each person to contribute to a better future where people can share their knowledge and motivate others to undertake and be agents of change for the future.
For more than 170 years, the Universal Expositions have established an instance to exhibit the new technological advances which have set the parameters in which our planet currently develops and evolves.
