On 10 November 2021, Marc Hansen, Minister Delegate for Digitalisation, opened the travelling exhibition presenting the Luxembourg Pavilion in Dubai in virtual reality. The inauguration took place at the Lëtzebuerg City Museum, in the presence of Lydie Polfer, Mayor of Luxembourg City, and Marc Scheer, Secretary-General of GIE Luxembourg@Expo 2020 Dubai.
The virtual reality presentation of the Luxembourg pavilion in Dubai is an entertaining and free way for everyone to participate in the 2020 World Expo without having to travel to Dubai. The Minister Delegate for Digitalisation stressed that this project of the Ministry of Digitalisation contributes to the digital inclusion of all citizens by allowing them to benefit from the advantages of new technologies.
He added that it is also a question of giving everyone the opportunity to visit this place that presents the culture, lifestyle and identity of Luxembourg beyond our borders for generations to come: “Through this film, which will represent a cultural heritage for Luxembourg long after the Expo in Dubai has closed, anyone interested has unique access to this world-class event.
The Ministry of Digitalisation’s project was coordinated in partnership with Luxembourg artists Karolina Markiewicz and Pascal Piron.

After this first stage in the capital, the exhibition will travel to the four corners of Luxembourg until 31 March 2021.
