UK at Expo 2020 Dubai COVID-19 Update

Expo 2020 Dubai will now take place from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022 after BIE Member States swiftly and collectively voted to support the postponement of the Expo. 
The UK voted in favour of the postponement and we believe that this decision is the right and responsible one in these unprecedented times. 
We are committed to the success of Expo 2020 Dubai and continue to prepare for delivery of the UK’s participation.
