Portuguese Participation


An early pioneer of globalization, Portugal has been connecting continents and cultures ever since the 15th century. Its unique heritage is a true testament to our ability to embrace the unknown, to influence and be influenced by different ways of life. The Portugal Pavilion presents this multicultural unity as our legacy for the future, giving visitors a glimpse of what it will be like to visit, invest, work and live in Portugal.


Tying Together the Past, Present and Future

Visitors will be taken on a journey through the imagination and achievements of the Portuguese people, unveiling the world that exists within Portugal. A symbolic narrative of hope, talent, innovation and reinvention is paired with a sensory experience to reveal the humanistic values that bind our nation to the world.
