The event will be held near King Salman International Airport which is currently being developed to make it easy for travellers visiting, with direct access to a Riyadh Metro station to get them to the Expo site in minutes.
The exhibition pavilions which are expected to be 226 in total, will be designed in a spherical shape with an equator line running through them and will have three entrances. The design aims to reflect the ancient urban style, history, culture, and nature of Riyadh city.
The locations for each country’s pavilion will be determined based on its longitude, so it will be geographically accurate, making it a site to see. Visitors can also stroll through a modern green oasis located within Wadi As-Sulai which is located within the exhibition site.

A massive landmark will also be built for Riyadh Expo 2030 symbolizing “Responsibility for Protecting the Planet.” It will also be surrounded by three pavilions each representing the sub-themes of “Prosperity for All,” “Climate Action,” and “A Different Tomorrow.”
Expo blueprint team member Eng. Nouf Bint Majid Al-Muneef said, “Our goal in the Kingdom is to organize the first environmentally friendly exhibition that achieves a zero level of carbon emissions.”
The Kingdom aims to make the Riyadh Expo 2030 the most sustainable and influential Expo ever, so if this happens we’re in for a treat.
