In line with the theme of the General Conference, the EXPO focuses on the importance of partnerships for achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. With a total exhibition space of 2000 m2 in the M-Building, the EXPO consists of five different areas:
The Innovation Zone displays several booths from private sector partners showcasing state-of-the-art technology around the topic industry 4.0.
The Knowledge Hub is a space for knowledge and best practices exchange in the format of focus group discussions and open information sessions on the following topics:
- Sustainable Cities
- Industrial Parks
- Industry 4.0
- Circular Economy
- UNIDO around the world
- Gender Equality
The Networking Zone hosts several events from Member States and UNIDO, and allows for bilateral meetings and networking.
The Youth Zone will offer opportunities to engage with UNIDO to find out more about the Organization’s technical assistance supporting youth skills development, employment and entrepreneurship. Expert-led dynamic workshops will also be organized in the Open Classroom on topics covering youth skills development, youth engagement, digitalization, employment and entrepreneurship.
Digital Media Zone
The Digital Media Zone will offer you the opportunity to express your views, through webcasting, on relevant development topics – including your favorite SDGs. Your short statements (between 2-3 minutes) will be recorded and disseminated via UNIDO’s social media channels.
The Interactive Digital Exhibition will also allow you to follow the live discussions from the General Conference and to have a glimpse of all activities taking place during the week.
You are also invited to use the Digital Media Zone for your own social media activities: come take a selfie with our special GC17 frame and use #UNIDOGC to be immediately featured on our interactive walls.
