Expo 2020 Dubai offers the UK a major opportunity to strengthen international trade relations and promote Global Britain, as Dubai prepares to welcome 180 nations and the world’s top business leaders and investors.

The Department for International Trade is leading on the UK’s presence at Expo 2020 and helping British companies secure major contracts as part of our High Value Campaigns. UK companies have won more Expo business than any other country with the exception of the host nation. Total contract value of awards to British companies to date stands around £1bn.

The UK will have a presence at Expo 2020 and there will be an accompanying business and cultural programme to promote the UK as a world class destination for business, education and tourism supported by a promotional campaign across the UK.
