Located in the Opportunity District, Latvia’s Pavilion will use the first and the third floor of the building assigned to it. It will guide you through Latvia’s story, showcase the offer of Latvia’s companies and be a place where new cooperation is born.
The first floor will offer the visitors a taste of the place we come from. We will make use of digital and audio effects and lighting to guide visitors through four different rooms that each tells a story about Latvian people, their achievements and everything our country has to offer.
The visitors will be able to immerse themselves in the country’s unique synergy between nature and human achievements. The presentation will be based on Latvia’s three core values: 1) connectivity - the synergy among cultures, transit, technology, and people; 2) challenge - the ability to solve complex tasks quickly, efficiently and at a globally competitive level; 3) a discovery platform - the environment for the development of new products and innovations. The element that holds the story together is peat – a material Latvia is rich in and that symbolically guides through Latvia’s past into its future achievements.
The exhibition will reveal various dimensions of Latvia as a place for growth. The first room will show Latvia as a young and energetic country with great opportunities for growth, and the second room will aim to showcase the country’s unique offer. The third one will be all about our ability to connect the unconnectable, thus creating value. Room #4 will present the explorer gene and Latvians’ ability to innovate.
To avoid crowding in the exhibition premises, eight visitors will be allowed per room and a total of 16 people will be allowed to occupy the premises. The whole experience of the exhibition will take 12 minutes.
The third floor will be used as Business Premises. Here, Latvian companies will present their latest creations in such industries as ICT, pharmaceuticals and medical equipment, innovative construction materials, transport and logistics, food, etc. This will make a good start for new projects to turn into local and global success stories.
