The 2010 Shanghai World Expo is an event of historic proportion for both China and the world. With more than 5,000 years of civilization, China welcomes both international exchange and world peace. China owes its successful bid for the 2010 Shanghai World Expo to the international community's support for and confidence in its reform and opening-up.

This expo will be the first registered World Exposition in a developing country, which speaks volumes about the expectations the world's people place on China's future development… especially after the successful 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing. Now, more than ever, is the time to discover China!

Although you might be more familiar with the term "World's Fair," world expos continue to capture our collective imaginations with galleries of human inspirations and thoughts. Since 1851 when the "Great Exhibition of Industries of All Nations" was held in London, world expositions have attained increasing prominence as grand events for economic, scientific, technological and cultural exchanges, serving as an important platform for displaying historical experience, exchanging innovative ideas, demonstrating "esprit de corps" and articulating visions of what the future will hold.

The 2010 World Expo is unique in many ways.

  • This will be the biggest World Expo held so far, with over 192 countries and 50 international organizations have already signed up
  • It is the largest World Expo site ever, at more than 3.5 square miles
  • With more than 70 million attendees expected - including an estimated 3.5 million from outside of China - the 2010 World Expo will likely have the largest attendance ever.
  • The 2010 World Expo takes place in China, the fastest growing economy in the world.
