EXPO = WORLD’S FAIR

An EXPO is a large international exhibition designed to showcase the most innovative achievements and the culture of all participating nations to the rest of the world. In the USA they are generally known as World’s Fairs. Each country designs and sponsors their own pavilion, inside which could be technological displays, historical exhibits, entertainment, a marketplace, or a chance to sample local cuisine. There are also themed pavilions not aligned with any one country but could be sponsored by the host city or a corporation. Additionally, the host cities are known for building architectural marvels that endure long after the EXPO has ended, for example, the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Seattle Space Needle. Sanctioned by the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), the fairs are normally held every five years in different parts of the world.

The very first EXPO was in London, England in 1851. The last EXPO to be held in the USA was the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair, and the last one in North America was EXPO 86 in Vancouver, BC.

Dubai has been selected to host the WORLD EXPO in 2020.

Osaka, Japan has been selected to host the World EXPO in 2025.
