official opening times

From 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2021, the next World Expo will take place in Dubai under the motto “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”. Austria is participating with the extraordinary project “Austria makes Sense”. What Austria presents and produces is not only meaningful, but also appeals to all the senses – from the overwhelming nature and unparalleled musical tradition to innovative solutions and state-of-the-art, sustainable construction concepts. An arc of tension – meaningful, sensual, contemplation – which the Austrian Pavilion in Dubai skillfully builds up. With a content concept and an architectural concept that visitors of every nation can experience directly and in an uncomplicated way. Through clever design that leaves a lasting impression. As an integral part of the exhibition, the iLab is dedicated to Austria’s innovative strength. This installation provides information about the Expo and Austria’s participation and is intended to inspire visitors.
