EXPO 2020, more than 50 projects delivered
Expo 2020 was the 34th World Expo and largest to date, regrouping more than 190 countries for 6 months. The mega event crossed the 20 million visitors’ mark.
Electra delivered more than 50 projects on the expo site and being part of this historical event was one of our proudest achievements. Continue reading to discover some of the concepts we brought to life:
The Luxembourg Pavilion project required our interior and F&B skills as we worked on the restaurant and VIP meeting room.
For the restaurant, we custom made chairs, tables, and benches from high quality wood and comfortable fabrics to create cosy seating. We also printed graphics to decorate the space with various wallpapers and wall lettering. Our client also designed additional décor items that we custom produced in steel. In front of the restaurant was an outdoor terrace that needed some shading and privacy, for which we produced and built a steel structure wrapped with thick thread curtains. The asymmetrical height (going lower in front of the restaurant) added a modern touch.
The VIP meeting room required wall and TV wrapping with an embossed design, window graphics for more privacy as well as custom-made furniture to match the theme.

For this very bright and colourful pavilion, Electra handled the full interior fit out and very colourful fabrics, with many colours that our graphics team matched with perfection.
The main structures were produced using a combination of MDF and steel, while the projector fabric was added to create the illusion of movement and transport visitors to the beautiful islands.

We were commissioned by our client to provide all interior graphics for the Senegal Pavilion. From bright colours to clear writing and unique shapes, we were able to deliver a full solution to transform the exhibition space.

The Swiss Pavilion was one of the most popular pavilions at EXPO 2020 and we were proud to participate in such a unique project!
The visitor’s journey started from a Crystal Cave for which we built and installed walls with integrated LEDs of different colours for a wow effect and a beautiful immersion.
The path then led to the “Hike through a sea of fog”, with its breath-taking mountain panorama in an asymmetrical shape resembling mountains. We built this part using wood elements as well as projector fabrics. This combination with lights creates a mesmerizing effect all visitors enjoyed as they were transported to the lands of Switzerland.
Then, 2 floors up were the rooftop and VIP and events space for which we produced custom-made elements to decorate the ceiling and accent walls. The space thus became livelier and more themed.

Expo 2020 carts
These colourful carts were hard to miss and are part of many people’s memories (especially children) as visitors shopped Expo 2020 souvenirs or just took a water break around them. We built 15 pieces scattered over the 45,000 sqm site. High grade Canadian wood was used in addition to a steel reinforcement to make sure the structures withstood all weathers from the coldest months and rain to the hottest days. The colourful graphics used were matching the Expo branding and enhanced the carts’ visibility. We built the 2×1.5m carts to include everything a shop may need like storage, cashier register placement, different types of displays, drawers, wheels, lights, sockets, etc…

What an honour it has been to be part of this project: the world’s smallest biomimicry museums at the biggest world fair!
We produced 6 free standing structures made of steel, with different shapes of graphics and contents. The curved shape allowed for more visibility and the custom-made books at the top provided more interaction.
The micro museums will now live on to be permanent exhibits in Terra — the Sustainability Pavilion at Expo City Dubai.
