Leading creative and experience agency, Innovision, have won the contract to deliver the events programme at the UK Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai.
The Department for International Trade (DIT), the UK government department leading the UK’s presence at the major world event with six other co-funding government departments, has appointed the live event and experiential specialist to scope, co-design and implement its business, educational and cultural programme at the UK Pavilion.
Expo 2020 Dubai is the first World Expo to take part in the Arab region and coincides with the UAE’s Golden Jubilee. Its theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’ is about the power of collaboration and partnership to create a better world.

Other notable work includes global activation for Facebook and PUMA; major event production for Red Bull and the creation of the award-winning Parallel, the world’s first fully accessible mass participation event.
