Get involved in Expo 2020 

Expo 2020 offers significant opportunities for New Zealand businesses.   

The United Arab Emirates Government has set up a procurement portal for Expo 2020 related tenders. Construction contracts worth NZ$4 billion and non-construction contracts worth NZ$150 million have already been awarded.  

There is an ongoing procurement process for construction and goods and services including retail, public relations and security. In 2018, the UAE Government expects to offer more than 120 individual tenders for IT infrastructure services related to Expo 2020. 

Size is no barrier to securing contracts with Expo 2020. The UAE is committed to supporting small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) from around the world.  More than 50 percent of contracts awarded so far have gone to SMEs.
