The Saudi pavilion, which began work on it in February of 2019, according to the Saudi Press Agency, extends over an area of 13,000 square meters, equivalent to two football fields.
The Saudi pavilion at the event that is being held in the Arab region for the first time will be the second largest pavilion in terms of size at Expo 2020, after the pavilion of the host UAE.
The eco-friendly building also includes 650 solar panels made by local entrepreneurs in the Kingdom, and is equivalent to a height of 6 floors.
The building is located in the Opportunities Zone on the Expo 2020 site, and it is planned that visitors will share experiences from 13 Saudi regions by providing interactive and immersive experiences that will be displayed on a 1320 square foot glass screen.
The first international exhibition to be held in the Middle East was scheduled to open in October of this year, but due to the circumstances of the “Covid-19” pandemic, it was decided to postpone the expected event until next year.
