Expo 2020 Dubai has unveiled creative content and programming for the Women’s Pavilion in collaboration with Cartier that will celebrate women change-makers around the globe. It will take place in Dubai from 1 October 2021-31 March 2022, the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region. Expo 2020 Dubai is also the first World Expo since the 1900s to have a stand-alone pavilion dedicated to women.
Expo 2020 Dubai aims to show the world that the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and aspirations for a peaceful and prosperous world, cannot be achieved without gender equality and women’s empowerment. Under the exhibition titled ‘New Perspectives’, the Women’s Pavilion will invite visitors to recognise the central role that women, known and unknown, have played throughout history.
For 170 years, World Expos have provided a platform to showcase the innovations that have shaped the world we live in today. Expo 2020 Dubai will continue that tradition with the latest technology from around the globe when, in October 2021, the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa, or South Asia will open its doors.
Event technology software company Ungerboeck is a silver partner of the USA Pavilion, which will use Ungerboeck’s end-to-end event management software for venues, including Online Event Registration, the Event Portal, real-time event updates and details, and their Room Diagramming solution. Ungerboeck’s platform will allow staff to manage the event details, within the spaces of the Pavilion.
Manish Chandak, Ungerboeck’s president, said: “As a US-based and globally operating company, we are especially honoured to power the USA Pavilion at Expo 2020 with our technology.”
Philip Frayne, acting commissioner general of the USA Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “Ungerboeck’s software will help ensure the smooth execution of all of our events, including the dynamic speakers and diverse cultural performers that we have planned throughout the six months.”
