New Zealand at Expo 2020 - Call for Service Providers


New Zealand at Expo 2020 is seeking service providers to support a world-class pavilion and visitor experience to showcase the best of New Zealand at the next World Expo, hosted by Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

The services required for the New Zealand pavilion have been split into three categories: pavilion operations, hospitality and design store. Individual organisations and consortia may submit proposals to deliver one, two or all three of the categories and will be evaluated on the delivery of a premium quality and seamless pavilion experience.

New Zealand’s theme for Expo 2020 is Care for People and Place.

“At Expo 2020, we want to give our pavilion visitors a top-quality and authentic New Zealand experience” says Clayton Kimpton, New Zealand’s Commissioner-General to Expo 2020.

“The restaurant and hospitality offering should feature the very best of New Zealand food and beverage and we’re looking for a design store that conveys a contemporary and innovative New Zealand, a country that is good for the world.”

A Request for Proposal has been released on the New Zealand Government Electronic Tender Services platform GETS and the Expo 2020 Procurement Portal.

Expo 2020 Dubai is the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, South Asia or Africa. Around 180 nations will participate in the six-month event that is expected to attract 25 million international visitors.
