Dubai will host EXPO 2020, Koelnmesse will be organising the German Pavilion .
Following Aichi, Japan, in 2005 and Shanghai in 2010, this marks already the third major EXPO following the turn of the millennium for which it has been entrusted with the official presentation by the Federal Republic of Germany. Koelnmesse has recurrently managed German presentations at world expos by commission of the ministry, in a series that dates back to 1986 in Vancouver. In addition to their EXPO experience, the firm from Cologne also has good connections to the United Arab Emirates as a result of its international business there - as well as its competence for the motto of the world exhibition: 'Connecting Minds, Creating the Future', which it has gained from events such as gamescom, dmexco and photokina.

The EXPO team at Koelnmesse will soon begin work in Cologne and Dubai. In close coordination with the ministry that commissioned it, the tasks include all of the preparation, tendering and monitoring of the structural and substantive design of the pavilion, recruitment of pavilion staff, and public relations - and, finally, the work of operating the pavilion itself during the six-month run. Unlike other expos, organisers have scheduled this event for the winter months, with the second half falling in the spring.
