The flagship UAE Pavilion will feature prominently in addition to a Welcome Pavilion and an Innovation Pavilion near the North Entrance surrounding the central plaza; and three Souks – one at the heart of each Theme Zone – which will showcase smaller pavilions surrounded by the larger country pavilions on the outer rings ensuring maximum visibility and footfall for all participants. Additionally, each thematic zone will also have one feature Entertainment Venue and a specialised Theme Pavilion.
