UN Pavilion receives an honorary mention from BIE

Sep 9, 2017

As EXPO 2017 Astana came to the end, it was time to find out which pavilions were the best, according to the international jury. The international jury consisting of 9 experts in the field of architecture and international exhibitions awarded the first, the second, and the third places in two categories: exhibition design and the revealing of the Exhibition theme. The pavilions were divided into 4 groups, depending on the size and their content. The United Nations exhibition, located in the International Plaza Pavilion, received an honorary mention by the BIE for good work.  

The tradition of awarding the best pavilions is traced from the first international EXPO - the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry -that  was held in London in 1851. The aim of the ceremony is to inspire the participants of the exhibition to implement the showcased projects and to promote unique ideas that are related to the topic of the exhibition.
