World Expositions

World Expositions are the largest and most prestigious global events, combining economic, promotional, cultural and tourist themes. Their scale is comparable to that of the Olympic Games or the FIFA World Cup. Since the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London, which was the first, World Expositions have become for a period of six months, the Capital of the world , attracting crowds of visitors, from businessmen seeking new deals to tourists.

The upcoming Expo is set to take place from the 13th April to the 13th October 2025 in Yumeshima, an artificial island in Osaka Bay, Osaka, Kansai Region.

The Expo’s theme, “Designing Future Society for Our Lives” underlines the importance of bringing Nations and people together through global cooperation, beyond all divisions, so that everyone has the chance to lead a good life and have a better future. It is also meant to motivate people to think about how they want to live, and how they may maximise their potential.

Poland at Expo

The main arena where Poland will be presented will be the National pavilion with an area of nearly 1000 m². Its architecture reflects Poland’s motto “gene of creativity” and its value for the future of societies. Poland will be presented as a country, whose most valuable resource is its people, who are creative, open-minded, well educated, imaginative and brave in the way they think and work.
