With less than one year to go to Expo 2020, HSBC and key participants are ramping up plans for this international mega event.
As founding partner of the UK Pavilion, HSBC will be inviting key stakeholders of Expo 2020 and the UK Pavilion in this series to explore what Expo 2020 means for them, how they will participate and what their intended legacy for Expo will be.
In the first edition you can hear from HSBC’s own Daniel Howlett (Regional Head of Commercial Banking MENAT).
World Expos are one of the oldest and largest international events on the planet. They take place every five years and last six months and have introduced ground-breaking innovations such as the telephone, X-ray machines and touch-screen devices.
Expo 2020 Dubai will be the largest event ever staged in the Arab world and is set to welcome 190 participating countries, and 25 million visits from around the world. The theme for Expo 2020 Dubai is ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future'.

In March 2019, HSBC announced it will be a founding partner for the UK Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai.
HSBC’s commitment to connect customers to opportunities that enable economies to thrive and people to fulfil their ambitions aligns with the UK Pavilion’s theme of ‘Innovating for a Shared Future’.
"HSBC has supported ambition and innovation in this country since opening the first bank in what became the UAE in 1946. “Expo 2020 will provide a window on the world of opportunity that we see for our customers around the globe." HSBC UAE Chief Executive Abdulfattah Sharaf, said.
