The UAE pavilion, created to showcase both the rich heritage and bright future of the UAE, has four floors and cover an area of over 15,000 square meters.

The iconic architectural design of the UAE pavilion that evokes wings of a flying falcon and tells the story of the UAE as a global hub, and the vision of its leaders to create a peaceful and progressive society with ambitious plans for the future.
