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.
