Previous sponsors of UK's world stage events have seen strong returns on investment including securing donations and deals in the millions, fruitful cross-border partnerships and a quantifiable increase in business wins.
The theme of Expo 2020 Dubai is ‘Connecting minds, creating the future’. It signals the global need to work together to inspire future generations and to develop partnerships across sectors, organisations and geographies to address the many needs of our fast changing world.
This central theme is structured around three sub-themes of opportunity, mobility and sustainability.These sub-themes represent three critical drivers of global progress.
