His Majesty’s Government (HMG), has a requirement for the provision of International Content Design Services (ICDS) to support the delivery of the U.K. Pavilion (UKP) at Expo 2025 Osaka.
Expo 2025 (“Expo”) will be taking place in Osaka, Japan. Expo will run from April 13 to October 13, 2025. The overarching theme of Expo 2025 is “Designing Future Society for Our Lives.” The U.K., having secured a plot in the “Saving Lives” District, is looking to deliver its pavilion with the theme of “See Things Differently – Tomorrow, Today.”
HMG wishes to appoint a supplier to produce creative ideas to shape the concept, content and visitor experience for the UKP at Expo. HMG is seeking a dedicated, inventive and inspiring creative supplier that will enable us to interpret the U.K.’s contribution to the theme to create the most original, inspiring and memorable visitor experience possible.
The Contract shall be split into two (2) Work Packages, (A) and (B). (A) will be a committed ask for the supplier to deliver upon award of contract. (B) will be a contract option, only commissioned by HMG if required. The contract term will run for an initial period of thirty-six (36) months, with an option to extend by up to six (6) months.
The contract has a maximum total budget of £1.44 million (including VAT) and this value includes any available contract option(s) (i.e., Work Package (B)).
