One of the ‘must see’ attractions at Dubai Expo 2020 is gearing up to open its doors to the public on October 1st.
Located in the Opportunity District, and within walking distance of the Al Wasl Dome, the Emirates Pavilion offers a preview for the future of commercial aviation, reframing the role that science and technology will play in the next 50 years of air travel, as it welcomes visitors to experience two floors of interactive multi-sensory installations.
From today, visitors to Expo 2020 Dubai can plan their visit to the Emirates Pavilion and book their preferred date and time slots in advance.
Construction on the Emirates Pavilion began in March 2019 and was completed in June this year.
During its design and construction phases, the Emirates Pavilion followed a number of sustainability principles, using non-hazardous, regional, reusable and recyclable materials in its overall structure, and incorporated different design solutions to reduce energy and water consumption.
The towering four storey design and façade are modelled around an aircraft’s wings taking flight, with 24 aluminium cladded fins that curve around two sides of the building structure.
The exterior lighting includes an 800 metre LED system, which illuminates in vibrant colours at night.
The bright, ultramodern design lets in ample natural light and serves as a backdrop for the immersive experiences, and can welcome 120 people an hour.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff and Emirates Cabin Crew will be on hand to assist visitors at the pavilion.
As well as the installations and experiences, visitors will be able to enjoy the Emirates Pavilion cafe located on the first floor, and can also take home a memento from their visit at the Emirates Official Store, which will be featuring customised Emirates and Expo 2020 Dubai merchandise for sale.
The Emirates Pavilion is open every day during Expo 2020 Dubai from 10:00-22:00.
