Brazilian Pavilion at the Expo 2020 clocked one million visitors since the start of the global event in October, opening up significant opportunities for the country to showcase business and investment potential to trade visitors and leisure and tourism attractions to general visitors.
“We are very much buoyed by the rising number of visitors and reaching the one million milestone. We believe that this has happened because of the innovative and immersive concept behind the Brazilian pavilion showing the diversity the country has to offer, both in business as well as leisure and entertainment,” said Elias Rodrigues Martins Filho, the Commissioner-General of Brazil at Expo 2020 Dubai.
The 4,000 Sq. m Brazil Pavilion in the Sustainability District presents an aesthetic blend of architecture and immersive technology that brings to life Brazilian attractions to the fore with the help of 125 giant projectors. The interior of the pavilion is made of translucent membranes on which video images of Brazilian forests, rivers, urban centres, food and culture are projected.
A statement from the Brazilian Export and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), the nodal agency managing the country’s participation at the Expo 2020 said the one million visitor was the English – Brasilian tourist Costa Van Heeswijk’s family which is planning to move to Dubai. The pavilion awarded them with an amazing dinner at their restaurant Nossa.
