What is the World Expo?

The World Expo, also sometimes known as the World’s Fair, is the name given to various large public exhibitions held in different parts in the world. The World Expo aims to promote the exchange of ideas and development of the world economy, culture, science and technology, in order to allow exhibitors to publicize and display their achievements and improve international relationships. The first expo was held in 1851 in The Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London, under the title “Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations.” The vent was an idea of Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria, and was the first international exhibition of manufactured products. As such it influenced the development of several aspects of society, from art and design, education, international trade and relations, and even tourism.

The first expo set the precedent for many later international exhibitions, later called “World’s Fairs”, which are held to the present day, with the latest one being in Shanghai in 2010. The World Expo serves as an Olympics for industry, science and economics. The main attractions at World Expos/Fairs are the national pavilions, created by participating countries. Some notable World’s Fairs include the one held in Paris in 1937 (where the Nazi Germany and Soviet Union pavilions stood face-to-face), the 1962 World’s Fair in Seattle, which gave us the Space Needle, and the 1964 World’s Fair held in New York City, where the Disney Corporation held a large sway over the event. This years World Expo in Shanghai promises to be the biggest and most extravagant in the event’s history, as this year’s expo will see a record number of countries and organization participating, as well as being the most attended expo ever.
