Pavilion – Expo Astana 2017, Kazakhstan
The United Arab Emirates Pavilion at Expo Astana 2017 demonstrates advanced technologies and scientific developments in the field of renewable energy as well as the country’s experience in the energy sector.
ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño (APD) is responsible for the technical development and implementation of the Pavilion, and for the technical maintenance and dismounting of the exhibition area of 1000 square meters and a VIP area of 650 square meters.
The UAE Pavilion offers exciting media experiences through state-of-the-art technology. An immersive audiovisual theatre, interactive devices, and projection walls provide visitors with the opportunity to see themselves as part of the energy solution by becoming more informed and increasing their own energy efficiency.
The impressive Main Theatre uses a 270-degree screen to show the past, present and future of the country’s energy technology, making connections between traditional modes of sustainability and the cutting-edge technologies pursued in multiple renewable energy fields.
Through a fast-moving media program, base elements (earth, water, wind, heat), and dimensions (from the microscopic to the vast) show the dynamism of energy innovation in the UAE. The UAE Pavilion at Astana experience concludes by showcasing plans for Expo 2020 Dubai.
