Luxembourg emerges one of the most popular Expo pavilions

The Luxembourg Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, one of the most popular pavilions, has announced that it is close to hitting the half million visitors’ milestone.

The pavilion has also revealed that it is one of the most Instagrammable and family friendly pavilions at the Expo 2020 Dubai.

From its launch in October 2021, the pavilion has accomplished many milestones including welcoming up to 8,000 visitors on a single day. Since then, the pavilion has played a prominent role in bringing together different cultures and minds under its roof.

The pavilion has not only hosted prominent dignitaries such as Prince Guillaume, Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg, and Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai but also invited businesses and individuals to discover the beauty and potential of Luxembourg. These efforts reflect the country’s commitment towards developing collaborations, partnerships and solutions for a better tomorrow.

Shaped as a Möbius ribbon, an infinite form, symbolizing circular economy, the pavilion has also led an array of initiatives to promote emerging entrepreneurs. For instance, the ‘Made in Luxembourg Week’ showcased the country’s vast array of creative, technological, and entrepreneurial talents through a curated exhibition. In that context, the ‘Knowledge and Learning Week’ presented a fun and inventive way of upscaling skills.

And naturally, one of the most popular elements of Luxembourg’s participation proved to be through The Schengen Lounge. Headed by Michelin-starred chef Kim Kevin de Dood, the restaurant played a crucial role in introducing Luxembourg fusion cuisine to Dubai. Over the past months, the restaurant has welcomed thousands of visitors who had the opportunity to sample the delights of the country’s cuisine including quality Luxembourgish wines made available to the region for very first time.

As an added attraction, the pavilion also features the only slide built inside a pavilion during the history of World Expos, as a fun nod to “Schueberfouer”, Luxembourg’s traditional fair which dates back to 1340.

It is therefore no surprise that the Luxembourg Pavilion is one of the most popular destinations at Expo 2020 Dubai. Through its collaborative approach, the Luxembourg Pavilion continues to grow on its successes and foster a nurturing and strong relationship with the UAE.
