An influx of more than 25 million visitors is expected over the roughly six months of the Expo 2020 with around 180 exhibiting countries and international organisations attending the event

The Thailand Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will have a façade resembling a flower garland and will showcase breakthroughs in connectivity, transport, and mobility. The design for the “smart” pavilion showcases an innovation-driven Thailand 4.0 economic model for growth and prosperity. Thailand wants to highlight business opportunities in the country by promoting its expertise in transport planning, logistics, digital connectivity, and personal mobility.

Each flower on the building’s façade will be woven together. Visitors will be invited to engrave a message on the flowers that will eventually bloom, creating an elevated garden along the exterior walls during the expo. The Dok Champa flower is a symbol of hospitality, luck, and respect with garlands often used as a way to welcome people. The pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will sit on a 3,606m² plot of land in Mobility, one of three Thematic Districts alongside Opportunity and Sustainability.

An arm of Thailand’s Ministry of Digital Economy and Society, Digital Economy Promotion Agency, will be responsible for the Thailand Pavilion during the six-month expo that opens its doors in October 2020. With just 10 months to go until all major construction work needs to be completed for the expo, Thailand is the latest in a list of countries to have unveiled their plans for Expo 2020 Dubai
